A line outside of the venue before 8 p.m. was evidence of Aurora’s growing demand for live events.

Needless to say the rap icons turned the venue all the way up, however, a notable performer listed on the official event poster as, “Hex Hectic” was unquestionably a highlight of the night. Undoubtedly leaving a lasting impression on the audience with an energetic set.

Hex’s official instagram notes his project, a mixtape titled, “Hollywood Hex," hosted by DJ VDUB will be released soon. Chicago artist, Ricky White performed alongside Hex Hectic as the two energized the crowd. Hex’s charisma, personality and delivery make him an entertaining artist to watch for.

Twista set the tone for the remainder of the evening with a special guest appearance by Chicago-area legends, Do-or-Die before Fat Joe eventually hit the stage performing chart topping record after chart topping record.

With other artists such as Mag1k, SMG Jimmy, RND Officially, and Spenzo attached to the event, the stage was set for an unforgettable night from the start. The event was hosted by Ren Terry and co-produced by DJ Cross of Farris Wheel Recordings/W-R-Music and Curtis J., of Syndicate Music Group.
