This past Monday night, Juicy J touched down in Charlotte, NC to make a stop at The Fillmore on the #NeverSoberTour. What ensued was, well….ratchet. But did you really expect anything else from the Juice Man??
So here we are a few hours prior to show time, my boy @wnorear and I are crushing some PBR’s getting in the right mindset for the show. It gets to be about that time, and we make our way down to the Fillmore. It was about 6:50pm and doors were opening at 7pm. This is what it was like when we got there:
That same night Miley Cyrus was having a show in Charlotte. However, she cancelled last minute, and you better believe that
some of the people underage teenagers that were supposed to go to that show ended up at this one. And since the show was all ages, they got in -___-
Never the less, Me and Wayne got in and re-upped on the beverages.
The other drawback to this show was that there was no Project Pat. This show was originally supposed to be about a month and a half ago, but Juicy cancelled to make an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. So the show gets rescheduled for 4/7 but Project Pat is nowhere to be found. Tight.
The first and only opening act was Charlotte’s own SeniorYr. This was the 3rd time I’ve seen him perform in the past 2-3 months and he’s seriously improved every time I’ve seen him on stage. If you have some time check him out in Shome504’s video: Pick N Roll.
I always enjoy seeing a local make it and I’ll continue to support Senior and the Paperboi movement.
The time had come: Juicy J!!
The lights dimmed low and some music started playing. I couldn’t quite make out what it was at first but then it started sounding familiar. It was something new, something off the Stay Trippy album….Stop It! The bass dropped and out came Juicy J hands waving, chain slangin, getting the crowd HYPE. Everyone around me was jumping up and down losing their minds….I may have been a part of that. It was tight. Juicy went through a few new songs from the Stay Trippy album including “Smokin, Rollin” “All I Blow Is Loud” “Having Sex” and “So Much Money”. He then transitioned to what has been helping his comeback, the pop hit “Dark Horse”. The teenagers went apeshit for this. The next song took not only the teenagers, but everyone to the next level, his most well known rap track “Bandz A Make Her Dance”. The turn up was happening. He went on to do “Scholarship” and before I knew it, he was doing “Stay Fly” from his days with Three 6 Mafia! This is a personal favorite of mine, I recall many a night in high school blasting this with my boys. It was perfect. He also did “Poppin My Collar”, “Sippin on some Sizzurp” and “Slob on my Knob” before getting back to his newer joints, which included another personal favorite of mine, “Zip & A Double Cup”.
After this song Juicy cranked it to 11. He called out for 10 of the finest ladies from the crowd to come on up and do a little twerkin. Juicy went on to do “She Dancin” and his verse from Wale’s “Clappers” to provide the music to this twerk session.
I just hope Juicy’s security was checking ID’s before they let some thots backstage.
He went on to perform “23”, “Drugged Out”, his verse from Future’s “Shit (Remix)”, “Blow Out” and his verse from B.o.B’s “Still In This Bitch”.
The last few songs included “Riley”, “Get Higher”, “Show Out” and finally “Bounce It”, which he got down into the crowd to perform.
All in all, the Juice Man delivered. The next day was a serious struggle though lawddddd. And props to the Fillmore for having a sellout crowd here.
Until next time, stay trippy my friends.
