The Fake Shore Drive Red Bull Event with Freddie Gibbs, Sasha Go Hard, Show You Suck and a few others was a fresh show last Thursday. We arrived to a packed venue (thank you to our connect for looking out for us) and was glad we did not miss who we came to see. The crowd was rocking in different sections at different times due to the artist they came to see perform. We made our way to the front left just as Show You Suck & A9’er got ready to perform. Every time we see these guys perform together we are always constantly amazed at the delivery of lyrics, high energy and responsiveness from ANY crowd. Going to a Show You Suck show is like being at a punk show with hip hop lyrics (tell us what is better than that?). The amount of crowd surf jumps that ended successful were pretty impressive as its not always often they will catch and support you back to the stage. The camera man who kept jumping we can’t wait to see his live footage (surfing with a cam no no no!). You can tell from the video the energy present during each artist set we will let the video speak for itself as we do not believe so much in favoritism. Creativity is just that, open, free and expressive.
After Show You Sucks high octane performance we had Sasha Go Hard who came out to a luke warm response from our observation only a few people in the crowd knew her lyrics “it seems”. No disrespect to the artist it just seemed the energy level went WAY down after Show You Suck performed. The young girls in front of us were kinda rowdy though as they made there way through to get a solid place during her set in front of us. Oh the days of flasking in the front row, as you get older you do it before hand right or in the bathroom right lol? Chi town keeps it classy!
There was a long space between Sasha Go Hard and Freddie Gibbs to which the three amigos as we deemed them show up to the front, “x’s” on hands just causing a mini ruckus the whole show for us…these were those dude groupies we are always RANTING about. It’s one thing to be a fan but when young you don’t understand the domino affects to front row fights etc. The night continues but we are kinda creatively deep front row-ish with my nail homies Nympho Nails & Astro Wifey + Jackie (follow them) our girl Smaranda (who helped a ton with this months awesome to do list @bout2blaze) and the dance incredible Joanie. As we awaited for Freddie Gibbs entrance row with cameras ish received a bit tight and disturbing but it surely used to be stable. We take into account if you happen to pay to get in you wish to have to look the exhibit however all a while presentations omit two phrases “admire” & “excuse me”. Freddie Gibbs who resembles a excessive Don Cheadelle to us is available in and rocks it so laborious however the QUESTION is what’s it with each express today following the identical process of popping out with blunts, being cool for the shot and passing it into an already aggressive or rowdy crowd? We’ve got viewed it with Rza, Way Man and different X artist together with Gibbs. Perhaps we have now attended to many presentations and its cool if you are beneath 21 however considering the fact that more or less aggression or what stampeded doable this might lead to is all the time a method of subject for a couple of folks wielding pricey cameras and many others. Freddie Gibbs snapped on his set, we will not entrance there and placed on a superior express for Backside Lounge. They stated Fakeshore Power will probably be bringing out different genres of musics by way of the month… we will be able to wait to look what subsequent month has in retailer as this exhibit is strong however if you end up a hip hop/rap best weblog how will the opposite genres play out? We can wait & hope for the very best however their first exhibit was once stable and we appreciate the vitality, promo and many others put into that have. Due to all folks who confirmed us love and recognize, watch, share and experience Chicago Hip Hop & Visitor…Freddie Gibbs.
P.S. BUT MARINES ADS within the heritage of FAKE SHORE…reallllly? Now not even intended as a diss however wtf does that need to do with MUSIC?
