HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Party promoter D-Money and Kevin Blatt will co-emcee The Player’s Ball featuring West Coast rapper Mack 10 as the party continues at the legendary Avalon Hollywood directly following the 2010 XBIZ Awards on Feb. 10.

“The Player’s Ball will give attendees of the XBIZ Awards show a chance to blow off some steam,” D-Money told XBIZ. “It’s a time for us to embrace the players of the industry with a party.”

He added that as a continuation of the XBIZ Awards, attendees won’t have to go anywhere for the “largest, longest-running webmaster event of all time.”

“For those who don't know, Mack 10 is probably most known for his group Westside Connection with Ice Cube and has his own solo career, selling over 2.4 million albums,” D-Money said. “If you're not familiar with who he is I'm pretty sure you'll recognize a few of his songs when you hear them.”

Mack 10’s chart-topping West Coast rap songs include “Backyard Boogie,” “Foe Life” and Westside Connection’s “Bow Down.”

Mack 10 joins The Player’s Ball family of legendary guest performers that include Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Xzibit, Ice Cube, Too Short, Flava Flav and Ice-T.

The star-studded 2010 XBIZ Awards will be hosted by top adult stars Teagan Presley and Sunny Leone and will be attended by the movers and shakers of the industry. The event is held in conjunction with XBIZ LA conference being held at the Sofitel Hotel.

Sponsored by SugarCash and CECash, D-Money said there are a few sponsorships available. For information, email
