Last Friday Mass Appeal took over NYC’s Gramercy Theatre and packed it full of avid music fans and the very best hip-hop acts. The line-up included everyone from living legends like Large Professor and Mobb Deep’s Prodigy to new New York reps like Bodega Bamz and Timeless Truth. We saw Mr. MFN show off his Cosby-sweater swag, special guest appearances from Flatbush Zombies and Action Bronson. Stand-out performances from Angel Haze, Roc Marciano and Asher Roth made the night even more memorable. Photog Bonnie Biess captured the night’s festivities and behind-the-scenes moments for Mass Appeal. Check out shots of the show below.
