When it was time for the birthday guy to perform he didn't make it all about himself. He brought his whole Project Sound crew with him. Every song he brought out one of his homies. He shouted everyone who performed and even made a special shout out to his girlfriend Nicole. Eddy is a good kid with a bright future. It was the first event of it's kind at Hub 17. It's safe to say that Mr. EI had an amazing birthday.
