Remember the day…..7th October 2013…why you ask? Because this marks the date that Rick Ross shut down the indigo2 arena….PERIOD!
On 26th September 2013 Wiz Khalifa took his tour to the UK where he performed at the O2 Academy in Brixton, London. He was supported by Trinidad James. KillerHipHop was lucky enough to be in the building to watch his performance go down and get an exclusive interview with the man himself. Check out our exclusive review and video interview after the jump.
With the doors opening a little after 7.30pm, Brixton’s Plan B quickly filled with eager fans awaiting Mac Miller and The Internet. With the DJ spinning a variety of songs from the past 2 decades ranging from Notorious B.I.G. to RiFF RAFF, the crowd was ready. The Internet took to the stage around 9pm and Mac Miller followed suit a few minutes later to deafening roars from his fans.
Mac opened the show with the lead single from his album Watching Movies With The Sound Off, SDS, with the Flying Lotus produced beat ringing off the walls. The crowds were heavily into this track with Mac Miller rhyming word for word at some points.
Although Mac Miller did later go on to tell his fans he would not be performing songs from his extensive back catalogue due to time constraints, to show love to his grassroots fans that were present, Mac went into the fan favorite Kool Aid and Frozen Pizza off his K.I.D.S mixtape at which point the crowd immediately got even more hyped than before with the sea of snapbacks bouncing along to the beat.

The atmosphere it seemed was eagerly anticipating the star of the show, as the opening acts (members of the A$AP Mob) bowed off the stage. After what seemed like a half hour wait, the lights cut out, pitch black! The crowd erupted, as they knew who was coming.
“Suddenly”… Flacko could be heard but not seen. His words echoed throughout, as he began to build up what was going to be a most epic introduction. Darkness still throughout the arena, though glints of light glowing from phones and cameras clutched by fans. “you my brother, you my kin, f*ck the color of your skin” The curtains shot up and all hell broke loose.
