Recap: The Ball Drops in Brooklyn Concert with Future, 21 Savage, Lil Kim and More

From The Ball Drops in Brooklyn Concert on December 30th which brought blessings by musical legends to several of the next generations of artists, The Hype Magazine New York-based correspondent Chris Robinson brought us coverage of the concert held at the Barclays Center which went viral when Future brought out rising star Lola Brooke to perform her hit single Don’t Play With It. Next-generation bosses King combs, whom the legend Lil Kim blessed with an appearance and performance during his set, and Chinese kitty opened up the night. From the red carpet, covered by B.E.T., the lines, crowd control, and performances, Executive Producers Kina ‘King Kina’ Jonas and Ezra ‘Ez’ Carey, working with powerful promotional companies Cruz Control & Lions Group and the team at Barclays, independently delivered a flawless happening, with no outside assistance from Live Nation.

For the event on December 30th, Future came to Brooklyn with 21 Savage, King Combs, Chinese Kitty, DJ Bobby Trends & DJ Spade on the bill but the crowd had no idea what was about to happen to them!!! Something old school went down at this event with Future bringing out Lola Brooke and Lil Kim showing support for King Combs, they celebrated the tradition of pioneers and superstars publicly supporting the next up.

When Future brought out Lola Brooke, she took over the show with a performance of her hit single Don’t Play With It. Chris describes the moment saying, “The entire Barclays sang the lyrics with her it was an amazing experience, especially with her being from Brooklyn. He also let Fivio come out and do a set and a small tribute to Pop Smoke before we closed out the night with a few more Future classics.”

Check out the visuals for Lola Brooke rocking the crowd which exploded across social media and the internet (@itsbizkit YouTube).


Excited and wondering what this team will deliver next!
