Def Jam 30 microcosm

A NIGHT TO (MOSTLY) REMEMBER: Here’s a group shot of some of the revelers at last night’s Def Jam Recordings 30th Anniversary Concert, specifically, the label’s NoID, Pat Monaco, Shawn Pecas, CEO Steve Bartels (rockin’ Lacoste for the occasion) and Laura Swanson. We managed to smuggle a spy into Barclays Center to report on the show; here’s her complete blow-by-blow account of the festivities: “[9:05] And it begins... So far: DJing all night and killing it. MC for the night, playing basically the history of hip-hop...DJ Kid Capri! Warren G, Onyx, Foxy Brown just hit the stage. And we have three more hours!... [9:30] Keith Murray just hit the stage…"Most Beautiful Thing." Method Man and Redman just hit the stage… [10:15] EPMD… Now Ja Rule… [10:50] With Ashanti!... 11:26: And now Fabolous!” Then nothing. But that’s understandable—it’s hard to party and type at the same time. You go, girl. (10/17a)
