Legendary Philly party-rocker DJ Jazzy Jeff was cut off mid-performance in Las Vegas Wednesday night (August 25) while DJing a charity event in honor of his former partner, the late DJ AM.
According to TheBoomBox.com, management at Surrender nightclub was “unhappy” with the music the DJ was playing and made the decision to pull him mid-set.
Jeff later tweeted (@DJJazzyJeff215) about the incident, saying “Funny when people r having a good time but management isn’t..can u say…The Right Party at the Wrong Place…F*** it…AM Lives.”
Jazzy Jeff was donating his time in honor of his late friend, DJ AM, who held a DJing residency at Rain nightclub in Vegas prior to his death last August.
TheBoomBox reports that this wasn’t the first time that Jeff has been forcibly removed from the stage while DJing. The site reports that Jeff was booted during the Kansas City stop on the Bacardi B-Live tour in June of 2009, when event organizers complained about his hype man Skillz’ alleged usage of “gang signs” while Jeff played Biz Markie’s unrequited love anthem “Just a Friend.”
