Last Night in NYC, Team SFPL was invited to attend a cruise hosted by Nicki Minaj to celebrate the launch of her new beverage, Myx Fusions. The cruise was also a celebration for Nicki’s hype man, ScaffBeezy. Attendees boarded the yacht at Pier 59 for the all-white-themed “Myx & Mingle Cruise” in New York on Thursday.
Guests enjoyed complimentary bottles of Myx as well as a FULL open bar and passed hordevours and enjoyed the sounds of several DJ’s the evening, which concluded with a fireworks spectacular. There were plenty of notables on deck including; Tahiry Jose, Yandy Smith, Rich Dollaz, Ebro of Hot 97, Jennifer Williams, Necole Bitchie, Sharon Carpenter, Ms. Drama, and Busta Rhymes just to name a few.
The boat was so festive and celebratory that at one point, the captain told guests to move to the right side of the boat because it was leaning to the left. Nicki grabbed the mic immediately screaming,“We don’t want to sink!”
They raffled off gift bags, which included her pink Pill speaker, Pink Friday fragrance, and Myx.
“I’m so honored that you guys chose to spend Fourth of July with us,” she said.
All white everything was the theme for the event, and for the most part, everybody stuck to the theme. Step into a few of the guests on deck …
