REVIEW: Mac Miller Album Preview Show – Plan B, Brixton London (10th June 2013)

June 13, 2013 · Posted in reviews · Comment 


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. After performing that, Miller decided to borrow an electric guitar from The Internet and strummed a few chords before going into another fan favorite, Best Day Ever but rather than stick to the traditional version, Mac breaks it down and harmonizes over guitar chords with the atmosphere changing immediately into a high energy guitar solo from Mac.

Big Sean and Lupe Fiasco Perform in Los Angeles on 10/17/2012

October 19, 2012 · Posted in Performance, reviews · Comment 

On Wednesday night, the 17th, Big Boy’s Block Party went down at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA.  It was hosted by the Power106 DJ himself.  Lupe Fiasco headlined the concert, but there were other big performances from Tayf3rd, Hit-Boy, Nipsey Hussle, and Big Sean.  There was definitely something for everyone at this concert.  While Fiasco may have been the headliner, Big Sean easily drew the larger crowd.  He was energetic and engaging.  His set featured songs from both his mixtapes and full-length.  The high point of the night was when Big Sean brought out Tyga as a surprise guest.  The crowd went wild! They performed “Do What I Gotta Do,” and then the Last King also performed “Faded.”

I was at the concert and got some videos. Check them out below!

Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded Album Review

April 6, 2012 · Posted in reviews · 9 Comments 

The evolution of Nicki Minaj has been quite the journey, and entertaining to sit back and watch. Dating back to when I first heard her on Lil Wayne’s “Drought 3” mixtape, I always thought she was pretty dope. Unaware if it was Lil Wayne ghost writing for her or not, I wasn’t too sure how long or how big she would get. Well, I think we are all aware now. She has grown to become one of the biggest pop icons in the world.

Yes, I used the word “pop” on purpose, because let’s be honest. Is she really much of a female rapper anymore? That’s a whole different discussion though. We’re here to focus on her newest album, “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.” I don’t think there has ever been a time that I went into an album completely unaware of the direction it’s going in, and then leaving it even more confused. After that debacle of a performance at the Grammy’s, Nicki had some explaining to do.

As songs were getting leaked, and singles being released, I just couldn’t really figure out what was going on. Is this going to be a rap album? Pop? Soundtrack to a musical theater act? Is she mad (figuratively and literally?) I wasn’t sure. So, with that being said, let’s just press play and try to figure this album out. Read more

December 8, 2011 · Posted in Music, reviews · 90 Comments 

As we close out the year 2011, and we look back on the albums that came out this year, we realize it was a great year for music. Some new faces made their debuts, while some of the more familiar ones released more quality music. Too soon to call any of them a classic, we’ll just settle with listing them in order. Over the next 5 weeks (to the end of the year) I, Mike Da Silva, will give you the Top 10 albums of 2011. Two albums each week and a brief summary of each.  Keep in mind this list does NOT include mixtapes. That is a separate countdown, because I can already see the comments now. With this being the second week, we will go over numbers eight and seven. They are…

Concerts Are My Addiction

November 23, 2011 · Posted in reviews · 16 Comments 

Everyone is addicted to something. Whether you admit it or not, there is something in your life that you choose to use, do, or watch at an excessive amount. This could be good or bad obviously depending on what it is. For example, if you’re addicted to sunflower seeds then it’s obviously much better than being addicted to cigarettes. I know, thank you captain obvious. I say that to say this: I am addicted to concerts. Read more
