There was a fusion of old and new fans in the jam-packed arena last night (January 10), and an air of unity.
MMG’s Wale said, “This is not a concert. It’s a pep rally.” True to form, he ripped the stage, demonstrating the reason for his constancy in the game.
Starting off the night was East New York native, Wordspit and his band the Illest. They added an eclectic touch to their set when they brought out a ballerina to the stage.
Next up was Cali’s Audio Push. The duo was witty and well-synchronized, which was a nice break from their dance-intensive routines of the past.
Bizzy Crook heated up the stage with his Miami energy, performing hits off his latest compilation, No Hard Feelings, and was later joined by Manolo Rose who performed “Run Ricky Run.”
ASAP Ferg surprised all with his high octane energy.
Wale enlisted his co-star cast of performers to assist his nationwide The Simple Mobile Simply Nothing tour, which is a nice precursor to Wale’s upcoming release of The Album About Nothing this March.
