Well, my first first ever concert was in Worcester, Ma. I went to see the christian group, The Katinas. It was a family affair. I was really young and I don’t remember much except they signed a copy of their third album, Destiny. I also remember them playing 3LW “Players Gonna Play” in the stadium just before the concert, and wondering why that was even possible just before a contemporary christian music performance.
My first concert experience that I wholly remember was the first time I went to see Wiz Khalifa in concert. I was a freshman at Umass-Amherst and he was performing at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, MA. At the time I thought everyone new who Wiz Khalifa was. I asked all my friends to come see him with me (back then it was only $15 dollars to see him… I remember when it used to cost that much to see Drake). But none of them knew who he was and I couldn’t get them to come with me. That didn’t deter me however. On my way taking the B43, I noticed my floormates were on the bus as well. The butterflies in my stomach started fluttering as I began to anticipate the night. We walked into the nightclub and made our way to the center of the crowd which was already packed even though Hendersin was performing. Next came Yelawolf. Even though I hadn’t heard of him up until that time, just seeing him perform on stage, I’m now a die hard Yela fan. It took forever for Wiz to come on stage. The DJ played one of those tricks where she tells you (the crowd) your not live enough yet, knowing full well you are, just because Wiz isn’t ready yet. I kept thinking maybe he needs to finish his doobie. When Wiz finally came on stage, the whole crowd came alive. I was part of that. I didn’t want Wiz’s performance to ever end. I told myself before I left, I had to see him in concert the next time. And I did.
Hello, WordPress Family!
Hello, Hip Hop Heads!
Hello, Audience! First, a little bit about myself and why I created this blog. I am a college student from Massachusetts. And a communications major. I have great hopes in being a radio personality and/or television host, the great art of “veejaying” is a dying breed 😦
I am an avid music listener and I DJ for 89.5 FM WSKB also available on line. Catch me every Sunday from 12-2 AM. An update with link will be provided shortly.
Update: New Time Slot. (Yaaay!!) Listen to me on the radio 89.5FM and/or stream online every Monday 6-8 PM.
Don’t get caught up on the great use of grammar, this is a school project. Still, don’t be fooled. I love everything that happens in hip hop culture from fashion to rap and r&b.
Certainly, as a child I listened to a wider range of music and I wont deny that my musical tastes have narrowed as I got older. But I am not here to appease the masses.
Keep it posted for NEW music from your favorite hip-hop artists as well as some you’ve never heard. (I’m also a fan of Afro-Hip Hop and Brit Hip Hop!)
