When Hip Hop’s Rick Ross And Fashion Meet

This Sunday hip hop rapper, Rick Ross & Friends + the Life of Fashion Show will be gracing Reelworks. Opening in 1945, the original company in the building was a tinsmith manufacturing facility. They specialized in steel and aluminum film reels for Hollywood. Fast forward to the 90’s, this building was known as Exdo Center. Originally, the owners were trying to get the neighborhood to be nicknamed “Exdo” for “Extended Downtown” but ultimately “Rino” was chosen. 

The building remained Exdo Center until the pandemic, when all of the live event venues were shuttered. Fear not, for it was during the pandemic when the building was reborn again. With $250,000 in renovations, the building was refurbished to be able to host more music events. Now a sprawling 3-D projection mapping system and JBL sound system allow the newly named Reelworks to host all types of events, including hip hop events. All of these upgrades make Reelworks a perfect venue for this hip hop event.
