South Florida's mixtape king, DJ GQ, is having an album release party this Saturday, at Art Bar in downtown Fort Lauderdale. He's dropping the Let Em Know Vol. 20 mixtape with guest appearances from DMX, Junior Reid, Pitbull, Trina, Kevin Lyttle, Mr. Vegas, and N.O.R.E., all of which are not only on his album, but also especially invited guests to the party. For those that don't know, GQ has been bridging dancehall/reggae with hip-hop for years and is one of the few DJ's to really pull it off flawlessly. Anybody looking for a live party this Saturday should check it out.
Art Bar, 300 NW 1st Avenue, Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Starts at 11 p.m.
