Did Boston successfully get “turnt” during Shaggy‘s set at Mixfest, as Kennedy calls it? According to the Jamaican rapper, we did. Despite being a dry show, Shaggy said that the crowd “brought the engery,” and that “they did a great aerobics class.” That’s his way of saying everyone’s hands were in the air.
Apparently, Boston was “turnt” the night before, too. Instead of checking into his hotel and getting a good night’s sleep the day before Mixfest, Shaggy decided to go club hopping. “The thing about Boston is, everything ends [clubs close] at two, so it was like, we’re not going to be tired for Mixfest,” Shaggy explained. “The thing ends at two! You’re still going to get a full night’s sleep,” he added in between laughs.
