If you ever been to Houston during J Prince Jr.’s birthday weekend, then you know the excitement it brings to the city. Rap A Lot’s J Prince Jr. gathered the city for ”The Mob Ties Weekend”. Every year, he creates a festive weekend with a host of celebrity guests as he celebrates his birthday. This year, he invites Money Bagg Yo, Lil Kim, Blac Youngsta, YBN Nahmir, A Boogie with The Hoodie, YBN Almighty Jay, O.T. Genesis, and more.
He begins the weekend with ”The Family Dinner” a private affair presented by Martell. We were invited to one of Houston’s best parties to date this year. This party became filled with beautiful energy and vibes. It was great to see such a family affair. Everyone enjoyed the courtesy drinks, food, to even a special painting drawn live!
The after party kicked off at Club Mercy, where the Mob made their presence known.
March 11th is now J. Prince Jr. day in Houston, TX. Congresswoman Jackson Lee help present this proclamation as well as attending his block party in 5th ward that Sunday. We were then invited to his block party in celebration to his birthday. Jr. had several guests appearances come through to celebrate with him.
J. Prince Jr. throws this celebration every year, allowing his city to become apart of some everlasting moments, especially in our hip-hop culture. His good deeds in the community has grown and has not gone unnoticed. That night of the block party, was a shooting beneath the building he was celebrating at. It was said there were two victims shot. As the crowd of hundreds fled the scene, it became a scary site to see. A scary site due to the positive motives Rap A Lot had to embrace to the city. This senseless act made the event less exciting. No one from the Rap A Lot camp had anything to do with this crime. It was just a dumb move made by someone steering for attention. The night was going great, until the devil became busy. Tabloids has made it seem as though this was Rap A Lot’s doing. As if it was enticed. After having the congresswoman present, as well as having family and friends at this event, someone still had the need to cause a gruesome scene. Besides the negative, this weekend was a highlight of the year for the city of Houston. We look forward to more of the March Madness and excitement this year from the Mob.
Today Rap A Lot brings Lil Uzi Vert in town for a live performance. Tickets are on sale now!
