Oscar winner Common took a break from filming a new film to “toast to the arts” at Ysabel in West Hollywood last night. A few of the Chi-town rapper’s celeb friends came out to show their support and party it up with the rapper/actor.
After strolling through Hollywood with Baby Titan earlier, Kelly Rowland slipped into this gorgeous number for the festivities.
We finally have a premiere date for Kelly’s upcoming singing competition show “Chasing Destiny." It will premiere April 5th on BET. Will you be watching?
SAG Award winner Idris Elba, who reportedly split from his longtime girlfriend recently, was onthe scene to toast it up.
The Perfect Guy starlet Sanaa Lathan took a break from the studio to hit up Common's event. She has been hitting the studio working on new music with Jhene Aiko and Big Sean.
Father-son duo Ice Cube and O'Shea Jackson Jr. were in the mix. It's crazy how much they look alike.
O'Shea's SOC castmate Aldis Hodge cleaned up nice in a charcoal suit. He's gearing up for the premiere of WGN America's original series "Underground," also starring Jurnee Smollett Bell, on March 9th.
SNL comedia Jay Pharoah and SOC star Neil Brown Jr. weren't far behind. Why is O'Shea so FIONE?
Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons and his model girlfriend Lucy McIntosh has been hitting up events left-and-right in L.A.

At another event...
Following a powerful new episode of “black•ish,” Yara Shahidi hit up “DJ Night” at Pailhouse Holloway restaurant, hosted by Vanity Fair, L'Oreal Paris and Hailee Steinfeld. The gorgeous YBF chick rocked a printed frock that reminds us of something her co-star Tracee Ellis Ross would wear.
The YBF teen then hit the photobooth with her cousin Destiny Jones and Disney actress Rowan Blanchard.
"American Crime" star Trevor Jackson and "How To Get Away With Murder" star Kendrick Sampson came out to party.
Kendrick caught up with actress Rumer Willis (daughter of actors Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) and “Dancing With The Stars” professional dancer Sharna Burgess for a photo-op during the festivities. Fun times!
