A$AP Rocky Brings The Energy To Yahoo! Wireless
REVIEW: Rocky & his mob go ghetto at London's Queen Elizabeth Park...
Monday, July 15, 2013 - 12:10
A$AP Rocky took to the stage at the Jay-ZandJustin Timberlakeon Sunday (July 14). It was almost like a monochrome presidential rally as the crowd waved their 'Long Live A$AP' flags in anticipation for the main man.
Feeling: Thousands of fans gathered and waited patiently for A$AP and when he and the mob finally arrived, the bass line trembled through each body in the scorching heat. The Mob ran up and down the stage to get the crowd hyped, and at once point, one of them actually jumped into the audience. A fan gripped onto him so tight, we were unsure if he was ever going to get back on stage. It seemed like the A$AP crew were at home in the heart of East London, with the Queen Elizabeth Park happy to have them.
The Look: The A$AP mob came out in white T-shirts with Rocky himself looking typically cool in denim shorts, a silk cravat and his trademark silver grills to complete the rich-ghetto look.
Tunes: A$AP teased the audience with a new track Shabba, which hyped up the audience big time. When the famous words "I said it must be" echoed through London's Queen Elizabeth Park, dedicated fans rapped along making Mr. Rocky smile and showing off his silver grills. He ended the set with F***ing Problems and displayed a gracious bow to the audience it was very fitting considering the fact that he was wearing a lovely silk cravat.
Special Guests: None on this occasion, but Rocky and his A$AP mob were more than enough to keep us entertained.
Banter: Rocky poked fun at himself when trying to sing in the blistering heat, appearing out of his comfort zone. He exclaimed: "Thanks for putting up with my bad singing" - receiving a huge, supportive applause from the audience.
Sweat Factor: The die-hard A$AP fans braved the moshing but we couldn't quite handle the heat. However, the heavy Hip-Hop beats had us all jumping, and with it being the hottest weekend of the year, there was definitely sweat dripping from the crowd.
Summary: For someone quite new to the game, Rocky held his own, oozing energy despite the sticky conditions. The A$AP flags and the giant banners with the words 'ALWAYS STRIVE AND PROSPER' all came together to show us that this man is here for the long run.
