What up everyone!? Went to B96 Jingle Bash, yes B96 Jingle Bash. I DJed for Chi-Town Finest Breakers (My other family) again at the All State Arena for Mayor Daley and Chicago Sports Fest! They sure did get it in to kick everything off to get the event started! It was insane how many people were there at the SOLD OUT event, featuring such act as David Guetta, Jump Smokers, Keri Hilson, Sean Kingston, Justin Bieber, Jeremih, Pitbul and many more!
I captured a few moment of the event in the V.I.P. section where Chi-Town Finest Breakers, DJ SHON ROKA & DJ Westside were sitting.
