Diddy did it
As I type this, Diddy is still rocking the stage at Axis/Radius. The hip-hop mogul hit the stage around midnight, accompanied by smoke, lights, screams, and, of course, a massive entourage.
Diddy's knack for recycling rock riffs was apparent early on in the set, with the guitar riff from Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl" set against a dance beat.
Diddy works the crowd like a master showman, instructing them when and want to chant: "Say I-Like-It! Say I-love-it!"
Diddy didn't walk down the red carpet, slipping through a side entrance instead, but once he got onstage, there was no doubt Diddy was here. The crowd's still going nuts, even if this is a new stage show Diddy's trying out.
At this point,everybody's drunk and disorderly, and it's lovely. Thanks for maximizing the party vibe, Diddy.
Thanks for playing our party, Diddy. Watch a slideshow from the party.
