Other details: W Hotels of New York in collaboration with UK based underground music site Boiler Room present, Do Not Disturb, an innovative series of unique live online music broadcasts from each hotel's E-WOW suite. The third and final event in the series which kicked off in London and continued in Paris took place in the newly renovated W Times Square EWOW Suite.
A select crowd gathered on the 57th floor of the hotel, overlooking Times Square. The night opened with of-the-moment producer Ryan Hemsworth doing a back-to-back set with A$AP Mob DJ J. Scott. Hip-hop legend Pete Rock was up next, before Mike Q and Brenmar did a back-to-back DJ set. During their set, pillows were being tossed around and it quickly turned into a frenzied pillow fight. As the crowd began to get antsy, Solange came out to do a DJ set and kicked things off with crowd-pleaser "Ignition" by R. Kelly. In keeping with the night's theme, she played a string of hip-hop and R&B songs. Finally, after much anticipation, headlining rapper Cam'ron got on the mic. The exuberant crowd rapped-along to the lyrics as he delivered a non-stop flurry of verses from his hit songs.
