After 14 shows and 14 different cities, G-Eazy’s Endless Summer Tour made it’s way to the Walmart AMP with a mind blowing performance.
G-Eazy had fans in a vibe I haven’t seen in a long time, and I must say the wait and anticipation for this show was well worth it.
But the fun was just beginning. G-Eazy brought with him a host of up-and-coming rappers, including Lil Uzi Vert, Ty Dolla $ign, YBN Nahmir and P-Lo.
P-Lo, the 27-year-old San Francisco Bay area native, and YBN Nahmir, the 19-year-old Birmingham, Alabama native, began the night and really put on a great show — establishing themselves as names to know, for those who weren’t previously familiar with them.
They set the table for Taylor Gang Entertainment artist Ty Dolla $ign, who came out performing some of his most well known songs “Or Nah,” and his hit with Post Malone, called “Psycho.”
At one point during his set, Ty Dolla $ign brought two fans on stage with him for a song, then really made the ladies go crazy by running off the stage to the lawn area, where he hugged fans and posed for pictures. He wrapped his set and thanked the crowd, saying it was “by far the best city on tour” with the most energy.
Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert then made his way out, emerging from a dark stage lit up with an amazing lightshow. I’ll say I’ve never really been the biggest fan of his music, but I must commend him for his stage presence. He really boosted the energy to a crazy level, which set the stage for G-Eazy.
G-Eazy came out for his first ever appearance in Arkansas looking like a boss, riding on the hood of a ‘65 blue convertible Mustang, and wearing his signature leather jacket and newly colored blonde hair. He opened his set with his hit “Pray For Me” and he nailed it.
He had the crowd going the entire night, as he ran through his set which also included “But a Dream,” “No Less,” “The Plan” and “Legend.” At one point, as he left the stage before the encore, he tossed his T-shirt into the crowd, which got the crowd screaming. He ended the night with his new hit song “No Limit,” and reiterated earlier statements that Rogers was the best city on the tour.
As fans began to leave the venue, there was much talk about how this show was well needed for the hip-hop community in an area where hip-hop doesn’t thrive, nor is accepted by locals in the Bible Belt. As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing but pure love for this genre and every hip-hop fan in this area or in surrounding areas will be waiting patiently for next year’s list of performers, in hopes there’s another spectacular hip-hop show to attend.
