(Photos+Video) Check Out A Full Recap Of #PeterPaloozaIV


For the fourth year in a row, Hot 97’s own Peter Rosenberg brought a plethora of artists out for his extravagant birthday celebration.

During this year’s #PeterPaloozaIV, Rosenberg put on quite a star-studded show at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square. Headlining the show was Harlem native A$AP Rocky and the entire A$AP mob, who put on a mind-warping psychedelic show that had the entire audience crowd surfing and going crazy. Other artists that hit the stage included Vic Mensa, Gunplay, Bodega Bamz, Remy Banks and Worlds Fair.

Of course it wouldn’t be a Peter Palooza without some special guests added to the line-up. Smoke DZA, Jaden Smith, Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants and Amber Rose were also in attendance, along with the entire Hot 97 family.

Check out a video recap of the show below and take a look at the photos in the gallery!
