Hosted By Newark Veteran Show Promoter Black 45 At the Legendary Pipeline Club in Newark (now a parking lot). Some heads say Mourice Malone’s open mics/rap battles in Detroit inspired the making of the Eminem Quasi Biopic “8 Mile”. Im pretty sure what was going on in Newark had a great deal of inspiration as well.
