Travis Scott Live

A few weeks ago–April 19th to be specific–I went to Travis Scott’s Bird’s Eye View Tour with three friends. I’ve been a huge Travis Scott fan since he released Owl Pharaoh and I was aware of the energy he brings to concert. In the days leading up to the concert, I was online constantly watching videos of him performing live. Afterwards, I knew what to expect: mosh pits, bright lights, and overall, an ongoing party.

I got just that and then some.

Honestly, this was one of the craziest and most exciting nights of my life. I knew it’d be good, but I didn’t know it’d be that good. I’ll summarize the night as it went for me.

We wait in line. That’s nothing new if you’ve ever been to a concert; it’s standard procedure.

Next, we go inside and buy merchandise. I just bought one shirt because I wasn’t looking to spend a whole lot, but that being said, the tour shirts were nice.

Once we’re inside, I’d say we waited for about 45 minutes to an hour. After that, Travis’s DJ came on to open and just play some songs. It was hype for maybe 20 minutes, but he stayed on for an hour. Definitely overstayed his welcome.

Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, Travis came on. It was electrifying. Once he stepped on stage, the mood shifted in a matter of seconds. Mosh pits formed within minutes. People were bouncing everywhere. Utter insanity.

He went through a great setlist which included the likes of Uber Everywhere, Antidote, 3500, goosebumps, pick up the phone, and there was even an unexpected guest.

Drake. Yes. I said Drake.

Overall, the concert was great. I’d highly recommend that you snag a ticket if he hasn’t came to your city yet. IMG_9431IMG_9387

Music Monday

I’ve been pretty busy this past week, and it doesn’t look like that’ll change in the foreseeable future. So I might as well find some different songs to listen to and share for Music Monday. I’m just going to jump into it real quick; there’s no need for a huge introduction. For this week, I’ll give you two songs and one album that I’ve been listening to a lot.

Playboi Carti – Carti Season

Playboi Carti’s debut album was a success in my eye. I’ve always been fond of his music for some reason, but I could easily see why he wouldn’t appeal to typical rap fans. That being said, I love the beats off of this album, and a few songs stick out to me as the best ones. wokeuplikethis, Half & Half, and New Choppa are definitely the ones I find myself coming back to. The A$AP Rocky feature on New Choppa is great; even better than Lil Uzi’s features which I enjoy. I would give this a listen if you’re a fan that likes the newer sound like Lil Uzi, Lil Yachty, or Migos even.

Warhol – Jugg Mane

I’ve been listening to Warhol for a while on Soundcloud, but for some reason I never came came across this song. The drop in the beginning is infectious and made me almost excited to hear the rest of the song. In my opinion, Warhol, unlike most Soundcloud rappers, can actually rap. I’d recommend this song if you like songs with a tough beat; this song is one to play loud in the car.

Luther Vandross – Never Too Much

Luther Vandross is on the other side of the spectrum music wise compared to Playboi Carti and Warhol. Already with a cemented status as a legend, Never Too Much sticks out of his discography to me. A great classic song with an overall great feeling. The singing is fantastic and it just feels good to listen to. I’d recommend this to anybody; it’s that great.
