Lineup for Best of the Best 2011

Who's ready to wild out with compulsive window-smasher and multi-platinum recording artist Chris Brown? How about shaking some ass with the Magic City's Diamond Princess? Or popping the top off a bottle of Hennessy Black with DJ Khaled and Ace Hood?

Well, we here at Crossfade are definitely down. We've already got our $220 two-day VIP passes. And you better get yours real quick 'cause Best of the Best 2011's gonna be a whole weekend of downtown craziness with Ms. Keri Hilson, rainmakers Travis Porter, the Marley brothers, riddim rider Shabba Ranks, and 25,000 fans. Even Jamaican mogul Vybz Kartel will be beaming down via satellite.
