Immediately following The Hustle, Fuse also premiered The Hustle After Party, a program taped in front of a studio audience at the networks street-front studio across from Madison Garden in the heart of New York City. The show is hosted by Esteban Serrano, host of Fuse's Top 20 Countdown and is produced to complement each episode of The Hustle. The Hustle After Party will feature interviews and performances with hip hop stars, along with discussions with industry experts and appearances by the cast.

This week we were fortunate enough to get an invite to come check out the set and the first taping of The Hustle Afterparty. The studio space was massive with several different areas set-up for different scenes. From the glass table shaped like an old cassette tape, to the Air Jordans hang on the line next to the XXL wall to the custom designed album covered wallpaper, the set definitely represented the hip-hop culture and lifestyle.

For their first show they brought out DJ Khaled & Ace Hood. We got a chance to kick it with the fellas backstage before they performed "Hustle Hard," the crowd went crazy once they hit the stage and the duo did not disappoint.

From listening to the The Hustle cast who stopped through to celebrate the launch of the new show to watching new artist Travis Scott who is buzzing in the industry rock the fuse stage, we are definitely looking forward to checking out the next up and coming episodes.
