The evening will kick off with a special proclamation ceremony presented by Compton City Councilwoman, Tana McCoy in honor of Lonzo's contribution to music and arts education. The night will continue with dinner and dancing as guests reunite in honor of Eve After Dark which showcased famous hip-hop and R&B acts of the 80's and 90's.
In lieu of gifts, Lonzo is requesting that guests purchase an autographed copy of his memoir N.ot W.ithout A.lonzo: The Roots of West Coast Hip Hop. The critically acclaimed book takes readers on a journey through Lonzo's entrepreneurial start as a disk jockey, leader of the World Class Wreckin' Cru and most notably his involvement in the formative years of America's most dangerous rap group, N.W.A. Proceeds from sales of his book will benefit his non-profit foundation "The Lyrcial Revolution".
In the wake of biopics and documentaries surrounding some of the most notorious figures in hip-hop; Lonzo's star continues to shine bright. Most recently in films like Straight Outta Compton and Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le. The films depict Lonzo as a no-nonsense club owner with a disdain for rap music, yet he remains a jewel in the hip-hop community and a notable resource to journalists and filmmakers seeking to add authenticity to their stories.
"It's a great time for hip-hop as the world prepares for the release of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. We share the same birthday so this weekend has special meaning for me personally and the west-coast hip-hop community at-large", says Lonzo. Atron Gregory, former manager to Tupac has also confirmed his attendance for the evening.
The Eve After Dark Nightclub is located at 12823 S. Avalon Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90061. Red-carpet and doors open at 9PM and General admission is FREE before 10PM. The VIP guest list closes at 11PM.
