A$AP Rocky, Tyler The Creator, Danny Brown And Vince Staples At Theatre At Madison Square Garden, Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015, Reviewed
Unfortunately, except for A$AP Rocky, the rappers weren’t quite up for it. Vince and Danny took forever to get their sets into high gear and Tyler didn’t manage it.
Yes, it is a rerun, you’re right. But it is a rerun of a show I missed featuring one of my favorite rappers, Vince Staples, so I am going with Fallon on Monday. I just got a ticket for what hits me as the top new rappers show of the year, at Theatre At Madison Square Garden, and it will be a good setup for the show. PS: Beirut on Seth Myers?
Must See: A$AP Rocky, Tyler The Creator, Vince Staples And Danny Brown At Theatre AT MSG, September 22nd
Half Odd Future and half Fool’s Gold, and really very very strong stuff, this is what I love to listen to when I listen to rap. It is a pretty good time for hip hop overall, the only problem I see is the constant gragging, at a certain point it sounds a little desperate to me.
Bilal might be a biggie true, 2013’s A Love Surreal was terrific and the one time I saw him live he was very good. The current single with Big K.R.I.T. is a goodie. Bassnectar released one of the best albums of 2014, but he was a bore on stage and it is a little soon for an new album, also the EP sampler was a disappointment. I’m going with Vince Staples.I’ve got a feeling about his first solo album, the Odd Future collaborator has been waiting years for his turn and the three songs I’ve already heard off Summertime ’06 have been excellent.
