best $15 ever.

I was definitely a happy sci after the G.O.O.D. Music Show at the Knitting Factory last night.  I was getting ready to partake in some serious stannery because three of my favorite up and coming artists were all scheduled to perform.  Even though Consequence was headlining, I really only went for Wale, Kid Cudi & Mickey Factz.  I’ve seen Wale and Mickey perform before and they BOTH KILLED so I wanted to see them again.  I was at the Red Bull Space to see Cudi perform but my boy couldn’t get in so I sucked it up [pause] and decided to leave [come crew, leave crew rule…ALWAYS].  Anyways, let me run down what I thought were the high & low lights of the show.  I could post every video I have but that would take WAY too long.  I’ll just upload my favorites and you could hit me on AIM for the rest if anything [s c i  IL or sci nebula].  Here we go:

1 – Wale didn’t perform, but he was there.  WTF?  GLC didn’t perform either but he wasn’t there.  Plus..honestly..I didn’t come for GLC like I did for Wale [OMG PAUSE].  It’s ok…I got over it later on in the night…[pause that too…yeesh!]

2 – Big Sean was ok.  I thought his joint “Get’cha Some” was kinda fresh.  No homo but I was really feelin’ his Bape jacket.

3 – Mickey was dope, but there was some hipster heckler calling him Lupe.  Hater.  I loved that he had his band “The Automatics” with him.  I love Hip-Hop with live instruments!  Here’s Mickey rockin’ the fuck out to the rock version of Rockin’ N Rollin’:

4 – Kid Cudi was every bit of dope I thought he would be!  The crowd was really into him and seemed to know all the words to his songs.  I guess everyone got that mixtape, huh?  He also announced that he is now under the G.O.O.D. Music label.  SWEEYT!  Here’s my favorite joint he performed, Maui Wowie:

5 – I was considering leaving after Cudi cuz I’m not really big on Cons but I decided to stay.  Good thing I did because KANYE came out and took over Cons’ set!  I saw ‘Ye earlier on the balcony with Alexis [I guess they’re back together] but wasn’t sure if he was gonna hit the stage.  Here’s Love Lockdown [which was probably inspired by]:

Of course I gotta also throw in everyone’s favorite rap track right now, Swagga Like Us.  I thought Jay was gonna come out for this one but that woulda been asking for too much..LOL.  Check out how cool the new G.O.O.D. Music group look together!:

6 – THAT. WASN’T. IT.  Cons brings out Q-Tip to perform a set as well!  It’s great to see a hip-hop legend in the flesh.  He started off with Check The Rhime, which SHOOK the Knitting Factory from its foundation [no exaggeration..the place was JUMPIN]!  The crowd was fuckin’ BANOODLES:

Man..what a historic night.  I was kinda lawry’s that Wale didn’t perform but Yeezy and Kamaal REALLY made up for that and then some.  Amazing..and all for $15.

Till next time,
