New York, NY -- On Monday July 9th, Doug E. Fresh headlined Old School Night at the 25th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series at Wingate Field in Brooklyn, NY. Proving he is still the World’s Greatest Entertainer, Doug E. kept the capacity crowd of 12,000 partying well past midnight.

This was Doug E.’s first New York concert since his unforgettable performance on the American Idol Finale, the first ever Hip Hop performance on the show, which was seen by over 200 million viewers around the world and has since received over 4 million views on YouTube.

The Brooklyn show was also an opportunity for Doug E. to showcase the arsenal of talent on his Entertaining Music Inc. roster. He brought out Vicious to perform hits “Freaks” and “Nika” and in the New York debut performance of Doug E.’s new single “Left Right”, he introduced teenage rap sensations Square Off. In spite of the “Left Right” dance being new to the crowd, they quickly caught on to the effortless steps and were dancing along with Square Off by the start of the second verse. Vicious and Square Off are currently working on their debut albums on the Entertaining Music label.
