The Bacardi and The Dean collections No Commission art extravaganza opened with amazing playlist of Caribbean rhythms that switched between old school, salsa, and reggae. Then they hit everyone with Celia Cruz vocals echoing throughout brightly decorated corridors.
The event held at a waterfront warehouse on Lincoln Avenue, where weeks prior the neighborhood was in the beginning stages of adopting its gentrified identity called “Piano District,” No Commission was twofold, both the birthplace of Swizz and the genesis of the global contemporary art form of hip-hop.
Swizz took to the stage and worked his art spinning, He welcomed guests, expressed his excitement, and gave thanks for the honor of such an experience by joining attendees on the ground for selfies, before turning the mic over to Young Thug.
New York rappers Fabolous and DMX also graced the stage.
