Moshpix: The Hennessy Artistry 2010 series made a stop through Chicago over the weekend at a secret location that turned out to be The Blackhawk Building in Lincoln Park. The Roots and Q-Tip headlined the event with additional performances by Chicago's Kid Sister, Curren$y, Yazarah and special surprise guest Erykah Badu. The tour only makes four other stops in the country, meaning if you were one of the lucky few to get in the building, you may have experienced the Party of the Year.
