If you’re a P Reign, YG, Yo Gotti, G-Eazy or Logic fan, I’m pretty sure you would have never expected for these four artists to go on tour together — but they did, and the one word to describe the experience would be, as the kids say, lit.
P Reign, YG, Yo Gotti, Logic and G-Eazy delivered an incredible show in Philadelphia Aug. 2. The performers exalted tons of energy and the audience gave it right back.
First to step foot on stage was Toronto rapper, P Reign. He performed his hit song “DnF,” which features Drake and Future, before performing another of his hit singles, “Realest in the City,” which features Philadelphia’s very own Meek Mill and PARTYNEXTDOOR.
“Bool, balm, and bollective” rapper YG put on a “brazy” show for the audience at the Festival Pier on Tuesday. YG’s hits from his new album “Still Brazy” proved him to be one of the best gangster rappers in the game right now. Performing his hit songs “My Hitta,” “Who Do You Love” and most recently “FDT,” YG gave the audience a show to remember. He kept everyone entertained by formally introducing himself as “YG 4hunnid,” speaking on racial tensions in America and showing off his fine West Coast dance moves. Next to hit the stage was Memphis rapper, Yo Gotti. His single “Down In the DM” took the summer by storm and it definitely showed at the concert. The audience was dancing and rapping the song word for word which was an amazing sight to see. After performing his most recent hit, “Law,” Yo Gotti went on to say that he’s been in the rap game himself, following up with his older hits “5 Star (Remix)” and “Yayo.” If there is one thing Yo Gotti wanted the audience to know before he left this stage it would be that “his name is Yo Gotti and he represents CMG!”“Logic! Logic! Logic!”
The crowd chanted for five minutes before the Maryland rapper actually stepped foot on stage. When Logic showed himself, I heard the biggest applause I had heard all night. He performed his hit songs “Slave,” “Flexicution” and “The Jam,” from his mixtape “Bobby Tarantino” and had the crowd ecstatic. From his meaningful lyrics, flowy beats and respect for raw hip-hop, Logic proved to be a real emcee. There were two standout moments from his show. One very entertaining moment was when he solved a Rubik’s Cube that one fan tossed him. I was skeptical that he would solve it, but he did and in only two minutes! The second amazing moment was when he gave the audience a crash course in production. He showed the audience how a song is made — the beat of the drum, samples and of course the lyrics. Last but not least, G-Eazy made an epic entrance utilizing a countdown clock which led to him showing behind a slide-up door, smoke and great lighting. When he finally appeared on stage, the crowd chanted “Gerald! Gerald!” G-Eazy performed tracks from his albums “These Things Happen,” “When It’s Dark Out,” and of course “Endless Summer.” The crowd was amped when he performed “Lotta That,” “I Mean It” and “Order More,” for which he brought Yo Gotti back out to perform with him. G-Eazy delivered hit after hit and ended the night as phenomenal hip-hop artists should have.
