Concert Review: 2 Chainz x Lil Wayne

Sorry for the wait.

LOL ^  Get it?  It’s a Lil Wayne mixtape.  But really, apologies for the delay in this post as the concert was on Saturday, June 25.

That concert seriously had the most energy.  From Lil Wayne to 2 Chainz to the crowd, and even the ushers – everyone was hype.  I can’t forget to mention who opened for the two headliners though.  Those artists being:  Ty Dolla $ign, Tory Lanez, A$AP Ferg, and Fetty Wap.  It was a true rap concert, and I loved every second of it.  My and Syd’s seats were also really really good, so that helped.  Thanks other Sid for the tickets!

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:

  • Ty Dolla $ign should not have opened.  That man has too many bangers to be the opener.  And not to mention he performed for a VERY brief time.  Maybe he had to go somewhere after?
  • At one point during A$AP Ferg’s set, he yelled for the crowd to get closer to the stage.  You would think just people with floor seats would move towards the front.  Nope.  People in the 100 level section at Staples Center (first section up from the floor) HOPPED over the railings and rushed towards the front.  It was pretty epic and hilarious TBH.
  • Fetty Wap redeemed himself performance-wise, and everyone loved him.  He really does have solid tracks outside of ‘Trap Queen.’
  • The main attractions:  Seriously, Wayne and 2 Chainz had that place lit.  Weezy performed a handful of songs from Tha Carter III, which happens to be one of it not his best piece of work.  And 2 Chainz just has this stage presence, well Lil Wayne too, that gets everyone SO hype and about that hip-hop life!

So great.  Watch my Snap story below to see what I’m talking about.  I highly recommend you attend a Lil Tunechi and/or Tity Boi concert if you ever have the chance.

The concert ended with 1% battery left on my phone.  Don’t think the night stopped there.  Sydney and I ventured across the street to this Mexican rooftop lounge and shut the place down at 12:30am – still early.  We then headed next door to this restaurant – started another dance party there and ultimately made it home and in bed by 3am.  Aggressive but worth every second.

Happy Wednesday, yinz!

Serge’s Selections: 2015 Edition Part Deux

In today’s favorites, you can simply listen to the playlist below!  While I probably didn’t capture all of my favorite songs, these are the majority of them.  You’ll see lots of Drake (obviously), Future, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, and The Weeknd to name a few.

Happy listening – especially if you’re at work and need something to get lit to while mentally preparing yourself for your New Year’s celebrations.  And while I normally give yinz a playlist curated on Soundcloud, that streaming service doesn’t always have the originals of songs.  So this time, you’ll have to listen via my YouTube channel. 🙂  Perk:  Some tracks include the music video.  I’ll be adding throughout the day should I think of any other bangers that dropped this year.  Enjoy!

Got the blog going up… on the (last) Tuesday (of 2015).

Album:  Fetty Wap – ‘Fetty Wap’

Don’t say I never gave you anything!  While the offical drop date isn’t until Friday, you can listen to Fetty Wap’s debut self-titled album Fetty Wap now.

The stream is available thanks to NPR.  Many of the tracks may be familiar to you, but he’s still making a big statement with this one.  And, there are no big name features on it.

So, stream it here for 24 hours, and then be sure to support Fetty by purchasing the album on iTunes this Friday.

Yaaaaa baby.

Fetty Wap Friday – 8.14.15

This morning on my way to work, I was on a Fetty Wap kick, so I thought I’d share with you the songs I had playing.  And no, one was not ‘Trap Queen.’  Sort of over that song.  #thankyouradio

And his debut album is set to drop September 25!  The man definitely has put out some bangers, so I’m looking forward to it.

Enjoy the tracks below as your Friday evening continues. 🙂

Off to Huntington Beach to celebrate my friend Sydney’s birthday!  Have a great weekend, yinz!
