Better than: Eating
Breakfast while listening to elevator music.
With just a few songs into his set, Curren$y brought out
fellow Jet Life member Fiend to ask, "This that O.G. shit, you smell that?" as
they performed "O.G. (The Jam)." But it was Fiend who chose to go a cappella on
his verse. And yes, we did smell that shit.
As soon as Fiend exited, veteran Styles P came out to
share the stage and the two performed "Lean" off their joint #The1st28 mixtape.
After a few more songs, Curren$y reintroduced Young Roddy
and Trademark. From the jump, he performed "Roasted" and "Hold On" with Trademark
doing his verse a cappella, assisted by the audience as they recited the
last two words of each line.
"I know y'all want to hear this," said Curren$y as he stepped
aside and gave the spotlight to Young Roddy. And as soon as the beat for "10
Crack Commandments" hit, the audience knew what they were in for as Roddy performed
his version for the Notorious B.I.G. classic, with a twist.
After a verse from "She Don't Want A
Man," Curren$y jumped into the Pilot Talk 2 hit "Michael Knight." And as soon as
the beat dropped, the audience raised their hands and wiggled their fingers up
and down as they made the iconic beeping sound of David Hassleoff's Trans-Am,
Rounding out the night, Curren$y left the fan favorite for
last, "Breakfast," performing the last minute a cappella. Appropriate for an
audience who, in all likelihood, was seeking midnight after-show munchies.
Wish list: "Scott Pippen" and "Reagan Era"
Personal bias: No complaints over here.
Overheard in the crowd: "Kelvin and Josh got here at 5:30 p.m."
