Howard University students and alumni paid $10 to $150 to see Young Jeezy last night, but the rapper never showed. Now that Jeezy is with new management, Kevin Liles to be exact, his team did not honor the contract that Jeezy signed with his previous management company. By 10 p.m., Jeezy was on a plane out of D.C. leaving some fans sad and a little pissed.
Still, that was only Friday night’s drama at Love Nightclub! The day before, on Thursday night, J. Cole was slated to perform inside the four-floor megaclub. Still, the club “lost power” and was unable to open it’s doors to fans, students and alumni. In fact, by 11 p.m., the management told the swarming line outside that the party had been moved to Ibiza Nightclub, which is 1.5 miles away, and not walking distance, especially in that sketchy part of town)
Promoters for Thursday night have already issued an apology exclusively to DC Fab! Wayne Johnson said:
I had a huge party at love on Thursday with host J.Cole. Hundreds of presolds and tables and the light were cut off due to “circumstances.” Suffice to say we want to apologize to our clientele.
Let’s just hope Love get’s it together for tonight’s party! :sigh:
I’m sorry but you cant blame that one Love or any venue that gets stiffed on a contract. Kevin Liles is a two headed snake that has been doing stuff like this for years. Give Love and promoters a damn break Cheese!
Yes I agree with one of ur responders that it is NOT the clubs fault this happened. At least with Jeezy. The J Cole lights being out issue…DEF Love’s Fault. And I believe they will be reimbursing people for their purchased tickets. That’s only right..

Both incidents are the clubs fault. Love should know not to make deals through management. A talent booker helps because their contracts are directly with the artists and supersede. And the lights being out?!? Omg! Pay your damn bills!!!
Both nights are club Love fault, especially Thursdays incident.I attend all of Wayne&Tony’s events & every time they promote an artist the artist shows. Where is Marc Barnes when you need him?
You know what? JEEZY? He ain’t even hot right now…This is what YOU GET. Get out of that music video lifestyle, being PRESSED to be seen at some club with a celebrity popping bottles like we are in the 1% and start acting like HOWARD STUDENTS AGAIN. Each year, homecoming brings MILLIONS to the city. The Hotels get it, the shops get it, and these GREEDY ASS PROMOTERS who don’t give a damn about HOWARD its students and alums get it. Each year, they jack up prices for admission, while showing NO appreciation to Howard. And each year YALL continue to flock to these clubs and get played out. It’s HAWK SPIT in our face. Howard students USED to not stand for such disrespect. WAKE UP. Spend that money with YOUR OWN and not these promoters who buy time on the radio and MARKET our homecoming like its some commercial event.

“HU ALUM 98” please calm all the hate and speak for yourself. As a Howard University Alumni I am a proud that our homecoming is one of DC’s biggest draws annually. The issue at hand has nothing to do with Howard University or HU homecoming. What we are seeing here is the problem that DC nightlife is facing overall, and it all falls on the promoters. These newbie promoters are currently running DC’s nightlife into the ground with stunts like these. In the past you never had to worry about an artist not showing up to Love. And the funny thing is if the artist didn’t show up, you wouldn’t even notice because you were having such a good time.
Calm the hate? Slim what are you talking about? Who am I hating on? Jeezy???? Or on those who go to the clubs and get played by promoters? How did you get hate from what I wrote especially when after I read YOUR comment you’re making the same point I did about the promoters? Do you think that this stunt was showing respect for those folks who paid to see a show? Is it smart to continue to this practice of carrying money to folks who play you out? That “hate” obsession people have is overused. Nobody is hating because they don’t think the way you do slim. Secondly you say this has nothing to do with Howard nor HU homecoming. But read the title of this blog. According to the author, this stunt RUINED Howard’s Homecoming. One event at a club RUINED Howard Homecoming? REALLY? I am a DC native. I don’t need you or anyone to tell me about the nightlife in my city nor about what Howard Homecoming nor about DREAM-Love or whatever they call it these days. The bottom line is stop supporting folks who don’t support or respect you…THAT GOES FOR WHOEVER…Don’t take that as hate…That’s not the spirit I’m giving it in.

What I want to comment on is that when searching for a good on the web electronics store, look for a web site with complete information on critical factors such as the personal privacy statement, safety details, any payment methods, and other terms in addition to policies. Constantly take time to browse the help in addition to FAQ sections to get a far better idea of the way the shop works, what they are capable of doing for you, and just how you can make best use of the features.
