Let Them Eat Cake
The perks of being a DJ on New York City hip-hop radio: DJ Prostyle does drive time on Power 105—the perpetual
runner-up to ratings champ Hot 97, the Malice to its Pusha T—and he still gets
a Hammerstein Ballroom birthday bash featuring Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Wale, and Ciara. We’d be happy if we could get even one of the four, and even happier if that one were Ciara. The once Queen of crunk&b has been making hits since crunk&b was still a thing, topping the charts with “Goodies” and just missing
it with “1, 2 Step” and “Oh.” In the new decade, her crossover appeal has waned, but her tunes have remained as solid as ever.
