Following the exclusive premiere, Power 105.1 Angie Martinez sat down with Bobby Brown, Ja Rule, Grandmaster Caz, Director J Kevin Swainm, and executive producer Slane Hatch for a panel discussion about the series and the R&B and Hip Hop genres. “For me, hip-hop is like a rollercoaster, it started on its wheels but once it goes through all those turns and flips, you don’t know what direction it’s going to go in, but guess what? It always ends up back on its wheels,” says Grandmaster Caz.

After the screening and panel discussion, guests were invited to an after-party featuring a set from DJ Whutever.
