DOES THE EAST COAST GOT LOVE FOR YG, MUSTARD & THE NEW DEATH ROW?!
New York let it be known: Yes
The post shoot out Irving Plaza is an eerie place. Overzealous security, intrusive pat downs and double confirmation for every guest list name. Ironically, the tension sets a perfect tone for the Fuck Donald Trump tour.
An unapologetic West Coast roster of YG, Mustard, Kamiayah, RJ, Slim 400 and Sad Boy makes you feel like we’re witnessing the new Death Row. Don’t know how it felt back in Suge’s time, but this can’t be far off. Except for the crowd; an eclectic mix of Pushaz Ink die hards, scenesters, industry players and gang bangers.
Cali hip hop and style has always resonated with Gotham. Game broke first in the Big Apple. Kendrick was the self proclaimed King of New York. Crips & Bloods are as relevant in Brownsville as it is in Bompton. We’ve made it a long way since the ‘95 Source Awards.
I’ve been blessed to be apart of YG & Mustard’s journey the past 4 years. From less than 200 people at Knitting Factory, to a sold out My Krazy Life show a year later. Now back with the left coast’s new generation, YG & Mustard have mastered getting Manhattan back brackin’.
