Drake and Lil Wayne have brought their Street Fighter headlining tour in California. They began their fight in San Diego at Sleep Train Amphitheatre, Chula Vista. The music performed was all from the current century and our modern era. Despite the fact that this concert was billed as a battle, they added life to a rap/hip-hop industry. All songs were originals; however, some additional featured artists were singing too. Variety was everywhere on this show. Various songs, effects, sounds, different emotions were in the air. Some of the songs were very emotional, some of them were romantic, some dramatic. Particularly due to Drake’s unhidden feelings, the others were excited because of his fresh emotional push to the audience.
The performers were active and they seduced people to be that active and involved in the performance. As a viewer, I can confirm that all this show gave me a lot of new emotions and a portion of joy that I got saturated with every new song. The whole atmosphere was wonderful. People never stopped moving and dancing. The performers were very active, and their music explained a lot about their past and experiences. Lil Wayne and Drake never stopped to move around. That has proved which reflected that emotions of the audience were true. As a viewer, I could not stay silent and I was also singing with that entire crazy crowd. I was trying to attract their attention. The songs were not performed in chronologically. Thus, it is true that rap/hip-hop songs can be not clear. Nevertheless, these rappers gave us a true realizing of every new emotion which is more important because music is created to give us new inspiration and feeling. No program notes were present at the concert and it was a positive fact about it. With any additional opportunity to attend this show again, I will do it without doubts. I would like to see these performers, happy faces, and outstanding show.
One more positive aspect should be remembered. No bad incidents happened during the concert and no drunk crowd who could have disturbed the atmosphere. Police was absolutely unnecessary at this show because everybody enjoyed the moment.
