ESPN the Magazine spared

no expense last night during their annual NFL Pre-Draft party at Espace. The SVEDKA was

flowing, the Coors Light was cold, the women were lovely, and the stars

were out last night. The ambiance was one of good times, high hopes, and sound

advice for this year’s draftees. With legendary spin-mistress, Spinderella on the ones and twos and a live

performance by Fabolous, ESPN

the Magazine gave the NFL’s up-and-coming stars and their fans a memorable

evening.

 

Soon

to be NFL superstars, Michael Oher (University of Miss.) and Jason Smith (Baylor)

were in the house as well as future Hall of Famers Deion Sanders

and Michael Strahan.

New York Giants’ great, Rodney Hampton,

was in the building last night. The H-Town native has been busy with his various charity

organizations and football camps for youngsters while practicing on his golf

swing.As the crowd settled into its collective mood, your favorite rapper’s favorite slick talker and Brooklyn’s own F-A-B-O took the stage and  proceeded to rock the crowd with a medley of his biggest songs, much to the delight of those in attendance.  Solid performance, good crowd control and overall very efficient.

 

With

this being a Hip-Hop site, we decided to ask a few stars a question that’s a

been a hot topic here on the site. The question: “Who are your Top 5 Hip-Hop

artists, dead or alive?” Here’s what a few of them said:

 

Damien Woody, Tackle, New York

Jets:

Notorious B.I.G.2PacJay-ZNasKRS-One

 

D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Tackle,

Idris Elba, Actor, The

Wire

Notorious B.I.G.Jay-ZLauryn HillBlack Thought of The RootsNasBonus Pick: KRS-One

 

From

Dennis L.A. White, Michael Ealy, and Omar Benson Miller, to Osi Umenyiora, Matt Cassell, Adrian Peterson,

Brandon Jacobs, Devin Harris

and many others; ESPN the Magazine’s Pre NFL Pre-Draft Party was, and always

is, a huge success.
