Wow! Pretty much is all that can be said for that event. With a line up of rising talents this show was definately worth more that you may have paid. I did get there a little later than planned (to many reasons to expose..lol) when I got there Big Sean was performing and it seemed like the crowd was feeling him but I couldn’t tell because I got there at the end of his set. Next up was Tanya Morgan for the first time seeing them perform it was a great expericence for me real classic and enjoyable music. J.Cole performed and ironicly is friends with some of my mutual friends and we had met many times prior. Another performamce from an artist I’d heard about and never really saw but he did a good job of keeping the crowd into the music and they def loved him more once he announced he was signing to Jay-z Roc Nation! Congrads!

Colin Monroe perform right before Wale and being that I had heard so much about him and his music I was excited to see his live performance and I was far from disappointed. “Cannon Ball” was a crowd favorite and when he brought out Joell Ortiz it gave his performance a little more excitement and the crowd enjoyed that.

WAAAAALLLLLLLLEEEEEE!!!!!! The headliner of The Deficit tour did his thing to say the least. From a live band shout to UCB, to great stage presence, to a good control of the crowd. Performing hits like “Back in the GoGo”, “The Cypher” with Young Chris from the Young Guns. He came out to help him out with that track and the crowd went wild. Even Kid Cudi came out to perform his hit single “Day And Night” which of course Everyone in the crowd went crazy over. Wale’s show basically reassured ANYONE in the NY state area that He’s gonna be someone we are hearing about for a long time and 09 is shaping up to be his year.
