When an invitation for any big Memorial Day bash in Miami arrives in the mail, one should always scan the guest list for one name: Trina. 'Cause if the Baddest Chick isn't gonna be there, neither should you. Luckily, she's booked to hit Bicentennial Park this weekend. So there's no excuse to skip out on the fest. Just go ball wit' the Diamond Princess, get off the chain wit' it, and throw it back. Dress code: no panties.

Wow, it's the 21st Century. And here's the first sign we're living in some kind of bizarre sci-fi future: Musicians are no longer making in-the-flesh appearances at major music festivals. Instead, like dancehall mogul Vybz Kartel, they're being beamed down via satellite from (sorta) faraway lands such as Jamaica and then broadcast on giant LCD screens for the enjoyment of the masses. Honestly, it's gonna be weird watching Vybz's Best of the Best set on an enormous TV in Bicentennial Park.
For years, Khaled has been keeping it live in the 305. He's a radio jock, a superproducer, and a rap mogul. And recently the "We the Best" boss has been tutoring a 22-year-old Deerfield Beach mike mangler named Ace Hood. The student's most important lesson — hustle hard, which he explained to RapUp.com earlier this month: "Never sleep. Work, work, and work." But we'd like to modify that teachable point a bit, 'cause it's not just work that's done best without sleep. The same goes for ballin' with the best on Memorial Day weekend.
