The Mother’s Day Good Music Festival was truly an unforgettable experience.
SJ Presents Saturday, May 7, pre-Mother’s Day event was the all-star New York hip hop concert it promised to be. Ja Rule, Ashanti, Fat Joe, Remy Ma and Lil’ Mo, Jim Jones and French Montana hit the stage. The energy was felt the minute you got into the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. With the way the artists connected with their loving fans, using smoke machines, background dancers and colorful flashing lights, the arena was packed and truly turned up on that Saturday night. There was hit after hit, such as “We Fly High, Ballin” by surprise guest Jim Jones, Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend” rapped by Fat Joe, “Pop That” by another surprise guest French Montana, and “Mesmerize” by Ja Rule and Ashanti. They encouraged the crowd to engage in a sing-along all night. From a native New Yorker perspective, this was truly a proper New York showcase featuring proud New York artists. Each artist who performed experienced the loving radiant energy the fans had to give. Just imagine a full house of die-hard fans singing your songs for you, and celebrating your accomplishments with you. It was truly a breathtaking experience for both the artist and the fans. More hits that played were: “Put It On Me” with Ja Rule and Lil Mo, “What’s Luv” featuring Ashanti and Fat Joe, “Lean Back” with Terror Squad’s Fat Joe and Remy Ma, and fan favorite “All The Way Up”with Fat Joe, Remy Ma with French Montana. It really was a great show.
