The Stage Miami

Friday, December 6, 2013

There were patdowns at the door. And a bouncer forewarned "tonight's a different crowd."

On Thursday, De La Soul's Maseo, Dave, and Pos did Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 at The Stage Miami. And it was all 'bout positive old-school vibes and that "real hip-hop."

But last night, Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah was up in the Design District's best club, looking to cause some Basel mayhem. Would there be violence, mutilation, riots?

Nope. Despite security's high-alert status, the club being a sweaty mob scene, and Ghost not going on till 2:43 a.m., there weren't any injuries. And the allegedly gangsta crowd got nothing but happy and high. And a full-show surprise cameo from Wu-Tang's Raekwon.
