MEKA: This was fun. Of course, by “fun” I mean “ducking half-empty bottles being thrown like footballs, watching rappers dive-bomb into the crowd with reckless abandon and witnessing a floor-clearing brawl.”
Last night I had the distinct pleasure of spinning for a packed house at Manhattan’s SOBs for a concert starring DC’s Fat Trel and Harlem’s A$AP Ferg, and – to quote the bard Joe Moses – they brought out the ratchets. Weed (and who knows what else) everywhere, guys dressed in fits inspired by the Mob’s sartorial choices, women wearing next to nothing and the like were the norm throughout the night, as the DMV native and the Trap Lord performed high-energy, frenetic sets. A$AP Rocky even appeared out of nowhere (seriously, he was hiding in the crowd and nobody noticed until he came on stage as Ferg’s guest) to provide some assistance.
