Phoenix || #HangoutFest May 2017
I would say maybe 70% of the reason I bought my Hangout Fest ticket was because Frank Ocean was on the lineup. I have been waiting literal years to see this man who is a genius of his generation, so I was pretty disappointed when he pulled out of the festival due to "production issues." I decided I would still go and see other artists like Mac DeMarco, Mandolin Orange and Chance The Rapper, and Phoenix ended up replacing Frank's set. I knew they had a new album coming out, but I hadn't really listened to them since around 2013 so I honestly wasn't that excited for their show. Boy was I blown away. If anyone has ever had a tough job, I imagine performing to a bunch of angry, sad Frank Ocean fans (who are already just emotional by nature), and making them happy is one of the toughest ones out there. But they managed to pull it off. Their sound couldn't be more different from Frank, and they embraced that. They did their own shit and did it so well, I almost caught myself forgetting that I came here to hear the Blonde album instead of Ti Amo. The visuals, the music, the beach atmosphere, it was all perfect for that moment. The festival as a whole was VERY disorganized and overall not my vibe, don't know if I'll be returning again. But Phoenix totally surprised me, and ultimately I'm still thrilled I got to see them perform new songs that have become some of my favorites since they were released later that summer. Guess I'll have to wait a little longer to see Frank, but stay tuned cuz I'm gonna make it happen. 🤙🏻
We hinted at @hairweavekiller 4th studio album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music being a great work of art, and now you can all experience it for yourself.
The 4 pre-released singles “Big Amount” featuring @Drake, “Good Drank” featuring @laflare1017 and Quavo, “It’s A Vibe” featuring @JheneAiko, @TreySongz, and @tydollasign and “4AM” featuring @TravisScott weave themselves flawlessly into this bass-heavy album. @Migos, @NickiMinaj, and @SwaeLee are just a few of the additional names that join up with @hairweavekiller and add to vibe for this whole record.
Check it out.🖤🤘🏼👛
I was laughed at being different from the rest of the crowd growing up. I was laughed by people I know now I'm sure and I'm still being laughed at for even indulging in such a thing lol. But you know what? I had the balls to do it, fast forward I'm in and I have been in foreign countries living out a dream and spreading my music with no cost in flights or stay, my PR ( Public Relations) 👉🏽 @adare954 is consistently reaching out to clothing lines for advertisement that represent me, getting me lined up for shows post my return, contacting magazine companies and such. The grind don't stop and now I have a team. I've done three shows this year, signed with an Independent record label that I will help grow and I live in south Florida in which I've grown to love, released my EP Album " Cold Summer" and already completed my Debut album which will be released in Febuary 2018. You thought those were big achievements... huh, wait until you see what I have in store for you by the time I come back from overseas January 7th 2018. I told you this shit is deeper than music. For those who support me throughly and haven't heard, click the link in my bio to listen to the Album as well as put me on your playlist if you really support me. So I won't laugh back, I'll just have an intellectual smile and wait for the calls from people I haven't heard from since I left Jacksonville Fl... #zone4nation
