As most of you know, rapper Maino's debut album "If Tomorrow Never Comes" dropped on Tuesday. Unfortunately, Michael Jackson's untimely passing means Maino likely has no chance of cracking the top 10 on the charts.
But that didn't stop the Atlantic Records and Hustle Hard from feting Maino and the release of his debut cd with a surprise dinner at Ruth Chris Steak House in NYC last night.
Thanks to PR superstar Sydney Margolis of Atlantic Records and the incomparable celebrity photographer, Ray Tamarra, for the pics!
