Last night at the legendary SOB’s, Rae Sremmurd and friends headlined a crazy show. And I mean crazy in every literal way.
With featured performances by Dreezy, Audio Push, and Father, it was all kinds of turnt. Let me take you a bit into this night.
Chicago’s own Dreezy opened up, who was actually super pretty as she performed her first time in New York with a sequined corset and Timbs on her feet. Performing her songs like “Chiraq Freestyle’, ‘I Love That Bitch’ and a few more tracks that were new to my ear, it topped it off when a fan gave her a rose toward the end of her performance and she couldn’t help but break out into a smile.
The momentum completely heightened the moment Audio Push got on stage. The LA duo literally has such an outstanding stage presence it was hard to not pay attention and vibe out with them! Their crowd interaction was great, and they feed off of each other effortlessly. I actually wanted to see more. They had SOB’s turnt!
But I guess that wasn’t enough turn up, because once Audio Push made their exit, a mob of more than 20 people,including ILoveMakonnen who was lighting up, chillin’ on stage as Father literally had the place in a mosh pit. OH MY GOODNESS. For a good 10 seconds I was a bit worried about my safety, lol.
With anticipation to see OG Maco perform after (which didn’t happen) their was a bit of a drought and the entourage that was with Father abused the mic and just went on rapping whatever songs they had just to wing it… but that got tiring to watch.
Now of course, for the moment we’ve been waiting for, Rae Sremmurd comes on stage and TEARS THE WALLS DOWN. Familiar faces like MikeWillMadeIt, DJ SpinKing, Justine Skye, Cara Delevingne and more sat on stage (yes, there was couches on the back of the stage) as the duo went on in their pink Timbs, gas masks, bottles of Moët & Henny, performing some new songs and of course their latest single ‘No Type’ which had the venue on TILT. Now, heres when things got real. Rae Sremmurd brought ILoveMakonnen on stage to perform his single ‘Tuesday’, which was perfect for a Tuesday night, when an individual from the crowd acted as if he wanted to give Makonnen dap, instead pulling him down and attacking him. Jxmmi from Rae Sremmurd by instinct jumped off stage to help his good ol’ buddy, but it was a surprise to us all. Luckily everyone was okay, they bought the song back and ILoveMakonnen continued to perform his song (but boy, you saw he was not happy in his face) You can see that in this video below in the first 25 seconds.
Overall, it was definitely an experience to witness and I give Rae Sremmurd kudos for keeping the show going and giving me the performance I was anticipating to see and enjoy! “I AIN’T GOT NO TYPE!!”
