Tommy Lee Sparta, Aidonia, Beenie Man appeared next and Ninjaman marked the end of the cable pay-per-view close to 4am. D'Angel joined Beenie Man and Ninjaman on stage during their sets.
Next were Mavado, Josey Wales & Brigradier Jerry & Admiral Bailey, Burro Banton & Peter Metro & Major Mackerel and I Wayne... then at 5:35am Sizzla Kalonji took over and was obviously in a war mood burning the FIRE hot!
Kip Rich entered the stage around 6:30, but before the 30,000 US-$ clash started, the pay-per-view LIVE-Stream was stopped and left thousands of viewers frustrated. Sting's facebook is full of complaints!
