So earlier this month I had the chance to go catch Wiz Khalifa at SUNGOD. I wanted to start blogging about concerts/raves/events that I get to go to for free…and call it [HOMIE.HOOKUP] Of course always gotta give a shout out to the peeps that made it possible. So this post goes out to the homie Tri Ta. Big ups to Tri for the effort in getting me and my crew in!
I’m a fairly big fan of Wiz Khalifa. He’s been building his viral prescense for the past year or so and has done over hundreds of shows. I missed him at Coachella but did watch the livestream and definitely thought he was great live. So I decided to head SUNGOD to catch him.
I’ve never been Sungod when I was in college. But from what I heard it was a big big drunk festival on campus. When I got there, man was I NOT READY. LOL. DRUNK-MANIA-USA.
Definitely had a very “RAVE” vibe to the whole thing except that the main stage had FALLOUT BOY performing. I’ve never been a big fan of those guys, but they seemed to be rockin’ the crowd.
The crew and I headed over to the Dance tent where the more famous half of MSTRKRFT was doing a KILLER SET.
Originally we wanted to come down early to catch BIG SEAN around 530. But there was no way were going to make it down there on time. So when we got there we found out that Big Sean missed his performance! So nobody got to see him…till
Wiz was going to go up at 1030PM. We wanted to head over there early to catch him around 1010 in hoping that we’d catch a good area. Little did we know from the Dance stage we noticed someone performing already at 10.
Yep. It was Big Sean!
We all ran over a long w/ all the Big Sean fans & the people that thought Wiz was performing. lol.
First time seeing Big sean live, and honestly I wasn’t too impressed. Dude definitely needs to do more shows.
Wiz came up and did a very similar set he did at Coachella. But dude had the crowd ROCKIN’ w/ him like crazy!
Definitely not that many TAYLOR GANG FANS but by the end everyone was rockin.
I love a good hip hop show, and Wiz definitely delivered.
Working in the music industry, and being able to catch LIVE HIP HOP SHOWS. I know how hard it is to do a good show. Which is why I tell all of my rapper friends that a LIVE SHOW is MUCH IMPORTANTE. You can’t just be up there w/ your boys throwing gang signs.
After the show we wanted to catch some Mexican food and headed down to RIGOBERTOS where we found out that it was ALL PACKED. :(
Headed down to a lesser known spot and had a eh eh burrito. But I was starving sooooo OKAY!
Overall this was a trip that was worthy of a drive down to San Deigo. Once again Thanks Tri for the hookup! :)
Till next time :)
NOTE TO TUMBLR READERS : WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO BLOG ABOUT?! ANY SUGGESTIONS??? QUESTIONS YOU WANT TO ASK?
“Nothing is more surprising than the rise of the new within ourselves. We do not foresee or observe its growth. We do not try to produce it by the strength of our will, by the power of our emotion, or by the clarity of our intellect. On the contrary, we feel that by trying to produce it we prevent its coming. By trying, we would produce the old in the power of the old, but not the new in the power of the new. The new being is born in us, just when we least believe in it. It appears in remote corners of our souls which we have neglected for a long time. It opens up deep levels of our personality which had been shut out by old decisions and old exclusions. It shows a way where there was no way before. It liberates us from the tragedy of having to decide and having to exclude, because it is given before any decision. Suddenly we notice it within us! The new which we sought and longed for comes to us in the moment in which we lose hope of ever finding it. That is the first thing we must say about the new: it appears when and where it chooses. We cannot force it, and we cannot calculate it. Readiness is the only condition for it; and readiness means that the former things have become old and that they are driving us into the destruction of our souls just when we are trying most to save what we think can be saved of the old.” ~ AMEN.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”— Steve Jobs
This month has been crazy. Tons of changes. Tons of life revelations. Bad days, Good Days. Super party weekends. Super Coughing Parties. Partying thru the sickness. Getting Sick while partying. Coincidental dreams, Realizing Nightmares. Saying Bye to Old Friends, Saying Hello to Old Friends. Happy conversations, Confusing Chats. Hitting my head. Waking up. Literally Waking up. All the things that happen this month is life. Its what happens.
Above all the stuff that happened this month. I know one thing for a fact. Thank you for all the great friends I have in my life. The close ones to the acquaintances. I appreciate the birthday messages, the people coming out to my party (Sorry the line was so long), and just everyone in general for supporting me. Thanks to my brothers, the pledgebros, the mentors, the homies, my artists, the chiefers, teamMURA, my confidant. Without any of you guys I really wouldn’t be able to be the person I am today.
The 26 year old version of my life so far has been a rocky start already but I’m definitely built for this rocky adventure. #superstrong #dreamchaser
So I’ve been traveling with Joseph quite a bit, and decided that I definitely need to start blogging about my trips. I take a good amount of pictures and usually upload it on facebook for kicks. So why not take it to the next level and blog about it.
So Joe (This is what I call Joseph Vincent, and will begin to refer him as that from now on) is a fulltime student, so the touring he does is only on the weekends. I give him a lot of props for being a full-time student and doing the music stuff on the weekends. Since I’ve started managing him both of us have been non-stop working. This previous weekend was his spring break and we both decided we were going to have a little bit of fun on this trip (Usually he’s working on a paper during deadtime while we travel.)
We did the show Friday for the AASIA over at University of New Orleans. It was a great show that had about 500kids come out? So the next day we got a chance to do some touristy junk (which I’m all about.)
This is the homie Smokey in front of the Riverfront Park!
Smokey in front of one of those ferry boats! Super reminded me of New Orleans Square at Disneyland! Super dope
Love the building architecture in NO
Forgot what Cathedral this was
Cafe Du Monde! (Beignat is dope)
French Quarter is coool.
Yoooo Thanks Daniel & Christian for showing us around during the day guys!
After that we headed back took naps, and began the adventure at night in New Orleans. Daniel dropped off about 30 pounds of crawfish for us to grub down on. HAaha Super delicious! We then started getting our drink on. They took us to Harrah’s Casino where they had a sort of Lounge in the middle of the casino. It was a great night and around 3 we decided to head towards Bourbon Street to check it out and get a “Hand Grenade”. For all the people who’s been on that street, knows whats up^.
We ended teh night around 530AM and headed to the airport to catch our flight back to LA. (Crazy Right?!)
Thanks to these girls for accompanying us to the airport after trekking with us down Bourbon Street!
Big ups to Christian & Anthony also for rolling out w/ us that night! #superdope
Overall a pretty awesome trip!!
I’ll be staying in LA for a while :)
Been having a small sort of quarterlife crisis because my birthday is coming up. So I’ve decided that I’ll be going HAM this April.
