305, Kickin It Live
The hip-hop scene on South Beach has a bum rap. When crowds of rap-loving revelers flock to our sandy shores on holiday weekends, the po-po comes out with riot gear at the ready. Hooligans wearing throwbacks (that should have been thrown back) and half-dressed hoochies in dusty threads arent encouraged at any self-respecting club. Enter Michael Madd, he of the hilarious, rambling weekly e-mail blasts and star-studded local events. Madd is one of the hosts of Miami L.I.V.E., a classy midweekly dinner party at Santo that has been attracting throngs of athletes, model types, and rhyme-spitting luminaries. Stars like Trina, Slim Thug, Trick Daddy, Fabolous, and Rick Ross have graced the stage. The event showcases both established and up-and-coming acts, so fans can expect amazing performances every week. Dress to impress and boogie with the ballers tonight at 9:00 p.m. Admission is free but limited. Call 786-317-7088, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.
