To assist in the many events that took place in New York City for All-Star Weekend 2015, REVOLT TV joined forces with Verizon for “Above the Rim.” Taking place at Stage 48, the event was hosted by The Breakfast Club’s very own Angela Yee.
There’s a common underlying factor between the aforementioned. Back in October it was announced that REVOLT TV would be added to Verizon Fios accounts, making it available in 46 of the top 50 U.S. markets on Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Centurylink and SuddenLink, according to a statement from Diddy. Also, it was revealed by Angela Yee and the rest of her “Breakfast Club” crew that the group would be making it’s way to cable by way of REVOLT.
Not to digress, “Above the Rim” featured performances from hip-hop heavyweight Raekwon, Joey Bada$$, Elle Varner, Justine Skye, Bridget Kelly and soul-singer Timothy Bloom. Between performances, DJ Skee, Mick and Questlove provided the night’s soundtrack.
Verizon Wireless x REVOLT TV’s “Above the Rim” included just the right mix of the industry’s veterans and up-and-comers. In addition, it also made a great intro to not only All-Star weekend, but also Valentine’s Day.
Oh, also, afterwards… it was a Diddy party!
