It’s officially festival season in Texas and everyone is playing shows everywhere you look. Considering ACL is on their second weekend and Marla Luna and SOS Fest are right around the corner, Texas is a good place to be right now. Tory Lanez was not gonna miss out in all the action, the dude is running through the entire state with the help of Hip Hop muggles Scoremore.
As soon as we walked into the building the first thing we encountered was a trojan condom, not to make things weird or anything but it just gave me a hint of the type of show this would be. The lines around the corner and it was 3 hours before Lanez hit the stage. For a change, the females were the highlight of the night. Overpowering the men by quantity and looking stylish as ever. They knew this was their night, to treat themselves.
Cash Money’s singer Jacquees hit the stage just before Tory Lanez, and with a couple of dancers and a couple of acapella freestyles he delivered the most energetic set of the night. The fans yelling out every song, Jacquees grinding in every direction possible, the ladies keept screaming. It was all so much, yet it felt natural. Everyone was vibing on an intimate level.
By the time Lanez hit the stage, my soul was ready. The main attraction did not disappoint. At some point the rapper walked on top to the crowd to perform a couple of his hits levitating in the middle of the venue. Without much notice he just walked up with such ease, It all almost seemed staged. The ‘I Told You’ tour is just getting started, with more dates in Austin and San Antonio for Mala Luna this month then Europe next year. So check out their TOUR dates to make sure you don’t miss them in your city.
