For the first time in five years, NYC-based marketing/PR firm 135St Agency held their annual BET Hip Hop Awards weekend BBQ in Atlanta (instead of Harlem). 400 VIPs, including MSDTV of course, packed Piedmont Park’s Magnolia Hall. Fonzworth Bentley and Kelly G (BET’s EVP Music Programming) co-hosted the event along with featured DJs Drama, Trauma and Traci Steele. Lots of star power in the building last night: French Montana, Da Brat, Ray J, Dondria, Verse Simmonds, Devyne Stephens, Lil Duval, Jovita Moore (WSB TV anchor), Kwanza Hall (Atlanta City Council), Faune Watkins, D.Woods, Shanti Das, Derek J and comedian Shawty.

Guests sipped complimentary Remy V cocktails and FUZE drinks while chowing on hot dogs, hamburgers, bbq chicken, potato salad, corn, Popeye’s fried chicken and an assortment of cupcakes from Cocktail Cupcakes and Tasty Cakes ATL.

Universal Pictures was on deck to promote their upcoming action-comedy Tower Heist, starring Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller. Guests enjoyed a little Tower Heist experience in the ever-popular OMG Booth, and went home with gift bags filled with swag from Rocksmith, Carol’s Daughter, Dr. Miracles, Mixed Chicks, The Source and JUICY Magazine.
