If you’re from VA or anywhere surrounding the Tidewater area, than you’re hip to one of the biggest concerts in the region, “Shaggfest”, that Z104’s own, Shaggy, puts together annually.
This year’s line-up originally included Tink, Jidenna, Trey Songz, & DMX, but we all know the huge mess DMX is currently dealing with, so it didn’t go quite as planned. Ma$e ended up filling the open slot & fans that attended the show were in for much surprise when super-producer & hometown hero Timbaland stepped out on stage.
During Timbo’s set, he stopped everything & addressed 2 people in the crowd that nearly had the concert shut down because they were fighting. Timbaland wasn’t having that go down in his city while he was there & certainly not during his set, which was probably the livest of the entire evening, next to his fellow compadre Trey Songz, another VA representer.
After stopping the music & pointing the two fans in the crowd out, he playfully but in a very stern manner told them not to make him look bad with all the fighting:
Pay attention. What the f*ck is going on. We are not going to fight in VA. Don’t make me look bad. Tell me the problem.. Can we just party for 10 more minutes?
The big man spoke & everyone took heed. After clearing up the issues in the crowd, he got right back to the party & took off with his HUGE Justin Timberlake collab, Sexy Back. And that’s how you finesse the game..
