“Are you guys ready to party tonight?” was all that Kaine from the Ying Yang Twins had to say to get the crowd screaming in anticipation. Although only Kaine was able to attend the night’s performance due to D-Roc having traveling issues, the single Ying Yang Twin put on quite the performance.

Kaine’s time on stage included popular hits such as: “Get Low,” “Salt Shaker,” and “Wait.” He ended his time at CSUMB with an amazing rendtition of Louis Armstrong’s, “What a Wonderful World” before bowing and leaving the stage.
