Sorry for the late post, but still pretty relevant. I had the opportunity to witness YG’s first live concert in Houston last Thursday at the House of Blues.
As you can tell by now, I have a bit of a thing for the Young G. And, my love has intensified after seeing him perform live. His tall, slender, tatted up physique alone held my attention. I digress.
YG is a very young artist and fairly new to performing in front of large crowds, needless to say the show had some noticeable highs and lows.
I did love his set design. It was old house looking fixture with his block “400” tagged as it’s address. DJ Mustard was hiding within the house spinning out YG’s tracks. He had the whole house party theme going. As he and his homies took long sips of Ciroc Berry between songs.
YG had krazy, good energy throughout his set. He even took a little time out to gansta boogie for the fans. He performed all the bangers from “My Krazy Life” as well as a few mixtapes hits and his classic “Toot it and Boot it.”
The crowd was going wild enjoying the gangsta party. All the gansta boos and thugs were on the scene, heavy. All type of gang signs and thug camaraderie took place during his show. As far as I could see only one fight broke out all evening!
One low point of the evening was when YG brought out a folding chair and proceeded to rap while having a seat. No sir. We (the audience) didn’t get the luxury of having a seat, so you shouldn’t either. And who sits down at a concert anyway?
I could kind of see why he had the chair as a prop when performing “Sorry Momma.” But the chair remained for like 3 songs thereafter. Gotta get your health up YG, no more sit down breaks.
I also had issues with his vocals. I don’t think it was anything technical, just the way he sounded. Another area for improvement.
Besides the minor imperfections, he had a great show.
He closed out the set with his popular hit “My Niggas” and brought out a host of H-town’s finest to support their nigga.
I truly believe YG is a solid young artist. With time and dedication he will grow into a great artist. Don’t believe me, just watch.
And what I said it.
