Last night’s ‘Silence The Violence’ event held in Johnstown, Pennsylvania was a huge win for the city’s Hip Hop scene. Over 200 people came out to support the positive event brought to the city by 8 One 4 Us. Not only did folks have a great time, but also importantly, no violence took place at the event. The audience saw great performances last night by local artists D-Ess, Kim King, Club Fresh, and 56 & Runnin’ Ent. artist TEN/27.

R&B artist Ambition, formerly 4Play of Pretty Ricky, was also in attendance. His performance sent all the ladies in the building to the front of the stage, especially as he ended his set shirtless. The highlight of the night, however, was when Grammy award winning artist Mr. Cheeks came through and shut the whole scene down with his performance. Mr. Cheeks got the crowd out of their seats and on the dance floor when he performed a medley of his and the Lost Boyz greatest hits. The audience got to hear songs like “Renee,” Lights, Camera, Action,” and “Music Makes Me High” to name a few.

All in all, the event was a huge success for the city of Johnstown. The Roundtable Empire was very proud to be a supporter of the positive event. Shout out to TEN/27 (Trevy Is Famous) for getting us involved.  Check out some pictures from the ‘Silence The Violence’ event below.

[Special Event] ‘Silence The Violence’ Event Hosted By Mr. Cheeks

Silence The Violence

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr said it best, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”  In recent times this nation has been plagued with a racial tension that is devastating this country.  Injustice and violence is happening all across this nation, in a neighborhood near you.  More and more lives are being taken, by the hands of not only the law, but by the people we know of in our own community. In the city of Johnstown, Pennsylvania they are taking a stand in an attempt to “Silence The Violence”.  

This special event will be hosted by Grammy Award Winning hip hop artist Mr. Cheeks of the Lost Boyz. It will also feature special performances by Ambition (formerly 4-Play of Pretty Ricky), TEN/27 [Trevy Is Famous], Kim King, D-Ess, and Club Fresh. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of the violence that has been plaguing the streets and how the community can come together and help silence the violence in their streets. Members of the Johnstown N.A.A.C.P. will be present and the branch President will speak on how violence is affecting the community of Johnstown. Mr. Cheeks himself will also speak on how he was effected by violence. This event is presented by”8-ONE-4 Us” in collaboration with The Roundtable Empire and On My Hip Hop Ish.  Tickets can be purchased in advance on our website.
