Many of Harlem's biggest current stars converged at NYC's Terminal 5 this past Tuesday (2/12) for the special "212 Day" event, which celebrated the long, storied history and culture of Harlem. The AT&T-sponsored event mainly centered around an onstage roundtable conversation with A$AP Rocky and Dapper Dan, who were also joined by Teyana Taylor, Jerry Lorenzo (Fear of God), and Fab 5 Freddy. The discussion delved into a wide range of topics, such as fashion, hip hop, and black culture. The event was decorated with many lavish props perfect for Instagram photo-ops (including a replica of Dapper Dan's shop), and food was also served, catered from local institutions Sylvia's and Harlem Pizza Co.

Following the roundtable, there were a few short sets from Teyana Taylor and Crystal Caines, in addition to a performance from Sheck Wes, who appeared amid recent accusations of abuse by his former partner Justine Skye, which he denies.
