My Experience during The Creed II Soundtrack Listing Party was a great one. Security was very strict and tight at the door and during the listening session but, the atmosphere of the room was very electric, vibrant, and inviting. The reactions of the guest as they entered the rooms were filled with “oohs”, “aahs” and “wows” as everyone moved throughout the building.
Walking in after getting through security, guest enter a room cut off from the others with a step and repeat and women dressed as Ring Girls taking photos, then after reaching the back of the room, guest enter a doorway to another room with “CREED II “ painted boxing bags hanging from the ceiling in the center of the room and a bench press in the back corner of the room. The room was filled with blue and green lighting. As you continue and move on into the main room, guest are immediately greeted with a bar to their right and a boxing ring in the back center of the room with the DJ and host, Fort Knox in the ring, along with professional boxers training and sparing in and around the ring.
The room is filled with spotlights making guest feel like they are in the MGM Grand getting ready to watch a heavyweight title bout. As guest walk around the room, more women dressed as Ring Girls are walking through the crowd with platters of food for guest to try. The room was filled with Aspiring Artist, Photographers, Videographers, Models, many other creatives, music lovers, and fans.
When Mike Will Made-It, Creed II soundtrack producer, started to make his way to the ring the lights start to lower and the intro to the album starts to play. He’s dressed in a black with white trim “CREED II” themed boxer robe and shorts. The songs Mike Will Made-It played from the album were very different. The listening session started very calm and soft with a feature from the legendary Lil Wayne then the atmosphere quickly shifted to a hype frenzy with a hard 808 bass song featuring Crime Mob and Slim Jxmmi of Rae Sremmurd. A very hype and rowdy song called “Fight” playing off of Crimb Mob’s popular hit “ Nuck If You Buck”. Both Crime Mob and Slim Jxmmi were in attendance and performed. Next was a song featuring Atlanta’s own 2 Chains and T.D.E’s, School Boy Q. 2 Chains also made an appearance and performance at the event along with Michael B Jordan, the film’s star, and rappers Scooly & Trouble.
