It’s gonna be “Party Time” when Pusha Preme’s celebrate their new album Before I Say, I Do. Preme already got national attention this year when Money In the Grave, a compilation featuring the track “Heaven At Night” peaked at no. 18 on Billboard’s compilation albums chart. The seven-track collection also hit no. 1 on the iTunes Top 40 U.S. Hip-Hop Albums chart.

By the looks of the video for the April single “Sick of these Games,” Preme ain’t playing. The incognito emcee—who sometimes wears a Pussy Riot-style ski mask—is ready for the big time, and you were either there when he played shows at small venues, or you’re going to wish you were.

Preme is joined at this West Riverfront venue by his backing band The Wandering Assassins plus musicians and emcees Bruce Wayne, Jafarlee, Davion the God, and Jay Browne.

Davy Rolando from 94.1-FM hosts the party, where you can spring for the $50 ticket that includes a happy hour, photo opp and limited edition T-shirt.
