Over the weekend I was lucky enough to snag some passes to shoot some of the most talented hip hop artists alive up close and personal. From new artists like our friends Tiron & Ayomari and Curtis King; to Wu-Tang Clan, Living Legends, and Hieroglyphics, we gotcha covered. Before I continue I just want to let you know that the one thing that I like about my hometown is that, we know how to throw a real hip-hop festival. There were plenty of highlights throughout the day starting with Living Legends performing “Never Fallin” to ODD Future throwing Cheeseburgers into the crowd. Everyone knows how to put on a great show, but our friend Kendrick Lamar really knew how to hype up the crowd. Towards the end of his set, an overly obsessed fan rushed onto the stage yelling random gibberish to Kendrick while security tried holding him back. That random gibberish translated into him being released from security and receiving an invite from Kendrick to go on stage and perform, “Looking Out For Detox,” live with him. He pretty much made the kid cry of joy in front of 5,000+ people. When I come to think of it, I still believe that my all time favorite performance was by Wu-Tang. Sorry if I’m “fan”ing out, but it was an honor to be on the same stage as them. TIGER STYLE!
