The show was held right before his headline appearance at Something In The Water Festival, as the office audience screamed their appraisal of the legend's classic tracks with new and subtle rearrangements.

The South Florida rapper took the shows acoustic ethos to a whole new level, reconfiguring a range of his tracks throughout his illustrious discography with a his nine-piece Cold-Blooded Soul Band for a six track set. The performance ranged four years of music and featured song from four albums.
