Danja and T.I. Private Pre-VMA Dinner

Super producer Danja and T.I. celebrated their 2008 MTV Video Music Awards nominations with a star-studded private dinner for under 100 guests at One Sunset in West Hollywood on Saturday. Rap-Up was one of the few media outlets inside the intimate affair where cocktails and a three-course meal were served.

Danja and T.I.’s celebrity friends came out including Tiny, Keyshia Cole, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, D. Woods, Bryan-Michael Cox, Melyssa Ford, Omar Epps, and Polow Da Don.

Guests dined on tuna tartare, steak, and espresso cheesecake, while sipping on the specialty drink of the night, the Gargoyle (absinthe lemon drop).

We spotted Keyshia Cole pulling away onto Sunset Blvd. at the end of the night in her white drop-top Bentley, which she drove herself.

The Grand Hustle and MVD Inc.-hosted event was one of the highlights of VMA weekend.
