Ruff Ryders and Cash Money Millionaires
This concert was held on Thursday March 2, 2000. Some of
the hottest rap and r&b artists included in this mix were DMX,
Juvenile, Ruff Ryders, Drag On, Hot Boyz, Eve, The Lox, Lil
Wayne, Big Tymers, and B.G. It was hosted at the Marine
Midland Arena in Downtown Buffalo. Tickets ran anywhere from
$40.00 to $55.00 for the five hour long show.

there, but I was wrong not even ten minutes before the show

things wrong with this wild and crazy concert. After it was
over that was all you smelled like and you were feeling the
contact buzz as it felt like things were moving in slow
DMX opened the concert with one of his greatest songs
"It's All Good". All the ladies in the place were going wild
when he yelled, "where my ladies at!" while he then tore off

was incredible his voice was sounding good in concert unlike
most rappers voices. As the night passed on the music was
turned up a couple notches. All of the groups were sounding
good until it got to Eve. This young lady singer is nice to
here on the radio with her vocals tuned to perfection, but in
concert it was horrible and the crowd was going from crazy to
just about silent. Juvenile was the last rapper to finish the
(what felt like short) concert. By the time he came up...
