Incredible show at Merriweather Post Pavillion!!!!
-Rakim showed why he’ s still in the game. A lyrical assassin.
-Ghostface and Raekwon were hot. There were definitely a lotta Wu-Tang lovers in the house.
-De La Soul took me back with joints I rocked to 20 yrs ago.
-Method Man and Redman had mad energy and were wildin’ out. Cats were all out with the folks diving and crowd surfing.
-Pharcyde was cool. I aint know a lot of their songs though, just the main ones.
-Mos Def was aiiiight. He’s a lot better with Talib.
-Tribe Called Quest ripped it. The thought Q-Tip was gonna have a seizure for as much as he was movin.
-However, Nas killed it!!! His set was unbelievable. I haven’t seen a crowd that hype in a long time. I was either reciting lyrics, bobbin’ my head or pumpin’ my fist the entire time. Hell, it was most often a combo of all three.
Some will ask why I only saw those cats. Well, we got there at 3pm or so and I knew the show was gonna last til like 11pm, so I passed on a few of the other cats that started off the festival at noon. Lucky I aint fall asleep after we ate the huge breakfast after church around 1pm. I had to keep my eyes open… LOL.
Anyway, right now my ears are ringing like crazy from standing in the pit dead in front of the stage though. I loved it though and wouldn’t trade the experience for nothin’. I might think differently at my 10am meeting in the office when I’m saying “huh?” to every question asked of me… but whatever. It’s all good.
Took so many vids & pics that my camera battery died… sorry I only got a few shots of Nas & Tribe… no vids of them at all… guess I need an extra battery huh? It did last me like 6 hours though, so I can’t be too salty.
Here’s a few vids and the pic gallery… I’ll add more later… goin’ to bed now…
De La Soul w/Q-Tip
Method Man & Redman
Peace & Love…
