Actually attending a live performance can make an artist endearing. Here is an example. Sure, I’ve known about Pusha T since he was on Pharrell’s label Star Trak with his brother as The Clipse. Admittedly, I’ve not really head much of his work outside of The Clipse’s and appearances on a couple of Kanye tracks. As the excitement built approaching the performance date I’d have conversations with my friend and learn some cool tid bits. One being that King Push is the CEO of Kanye’s record label GOOD Music. I made sure to listen to his new record “King Push” so I could be familiar with the material. By the end of the show I had become a fan, going through his previous releases. Back tracking and learning more. I don’t really know much else to say other than King Push’s set was compelling, endearing, and overall a good time. The crowd was live, vibe was good, and everyone seemed to really enjoy the event. It was one of the best “hip hop” shows I’ve been to in a while.
One thing I made sure not to do twice is forget my phone like I did when I went to the Le Butcherettes show so I could take photos. I got a couple of nice flicks and some video. Check them out!
