Pusha T comes home for the holiday

Twitter was the first to see the debacle occur at the Pusha T concert in Toronto. As soon as the video hit the timeline, Twitter erupted in loud and wrong opinions. From retweets to lines drawn between Pusha T fans and the OVO fans, there was one saviour on the timeline that night who provided not only clear video about the situation but also an explanation. Shout out to @Tyrellington_.

The Pusha T concert was on Wednesday (11/21) at the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. The night began with Ezko who is a local rapper from the DMV area (like Pusha T). Ezko warmed the crowd up with his energy and call-and-response chants. Bernard Jabs from Tipton, GA followed up. Although Bernard Jabs looked like Hurricane Chris, Playboi Carti, with a little Uzi mixed together his energy and his groove were all his own. His music had heavy bass and uptempo that kept the crowd rocking. The DMV is known to not be too forgiving to outsiders, however, according to the sway of the crowd it is safe to say Bernard Jabs is welcome back to the metropolitan area. Last but certainly least, Phony Ppl from Brooklyn, NY took to the stage and flooded the venue with funky, Hip-Hop flavour. Phony Ppl blew the spot up and had the crowd grooving to tracks off of their new album “mō'zā-ik”. The crowd sang along and two-stepped to Phony Ppl’s cover of Michael Jackson’s You Rock My World. This group of openers were something special to witness, everyone had a different sound and style.

Push T came out to a full house that was full of Pusha T fans. He performed tracks off of Daytona and reminded the crowd that Daytona album was album of the year. Pusha T took us down memory lane performing older faves such as New God Flow and Runaway. If you were looking for any type of shenanigans and drama, the DMV was not bringing it to a man that we consider a legend and a hometown hero… who also lives down the street.
