“Trillionaires & Trendsetters”

The month of November graced our fair city of Angels with a new pair of wings courtesy of Red Bull and it’s #30DaysInLA concert series. Featuring everyone from Chance The Rapper and Thurz, to Run The Jewelz, Bad Religion and Juicy J, #30DaysInLA ended on a trill note at the Hollywood Palladium with performances by Saba, Tink, and of course the all mighty A$AP Mob.

The line to get inside the venue was visible to passing traffic on Sunset boulevard. The scene was electric and set for the high octave energy only Red Bull can bring with it’s unique mixture of taurine, caffeine and culture.

I stepped in the club all VIP, ordered a Blueberry Red Bull & Vodka with a twist of lime and got lit. Tink was on stage doing her thing with style and grace looking cute in a silky button up, with black tights and a SnapBack to complete her ensemble.

Saba had already rocked the crowd earlier. Representing for Chicago and Fake Shore Drive, you can catch the young blood on twitter and IG @sabapivot.

Tink got an ill buzz behind her now that she got the Timbaland cosign and that “Movin’ Bass” joint jumping with Rick Ross and Jay Z. She got joints with DJ Dahi and all that good schtuff but the audience is still learning her material. Give it some time and they are gonna look back and be like I was on her before she blew all the way the fuck up. Her DJ warmed the crowd up by playing West coast favorites in the middle of her set. He played classic joints like “California Love” and “The Next Episode” before getting all new age and ratchet by dropping some YG in the mix.

Next Tink brought out Alexis Krauss from Sleigh Bells for a quick song and then got on some hip hop shit. The songbird did her thing on the mic, dropping quotable bars like how she’s coming heavy as a pound while you still on the gram, and a little something something, “Blow right at your top, John Kennedy.”

It was dope. I gotta give her her props. She ended her performance with her most famous joint right now, “Movin’ Bass.” Yes. She rapped Hov & Rozay’s parts.

DJ Nu-Mark was on the ones and twos while the crowd waited for the mob to touchdown.

Two giant inflatable 40 ounces crowned the stage as “Hella Hoes” dropped over the booming sound system and one by one the Harlem natives took the spotlight.

The Intro to Ferg’s Trap Lord album played next, but the crowd surfing began as Ferg rocked “Perfume” the first single from his new mixtape which dropped on Black Friday.

I couldn’t help but notice Rocky wearing a Notorious B.I.G. King of NYC shirt in the city that murked one of the G.O.A.T.s.

One way or another, Ferg still got a $100 bill for every bump on your face. Luckily nobody was in the building to cause more mayhem than the mosh pit which popped off during “Multiply.”

Rocky took it back to old school mob classics and rapped his verse on “Brand New Guy” and 12vy and Nast joined him on “Trilla.” Then they flashed forward to some new Ferg track called “NV” with Nast rapping back and forth with the Trap Lord on some hater shxt. The concept is dope and came off even better live than it sounds on the mixtape.

Then the ball dropped. Red Bull promised us some surprise guests and they definitely held up their end of the bargain as the A$AP Mob brought Drake out on stage. The 30th was a Sunday night, but when Drizzy dropped the beat to iLoveMakonnen’s smash single, he had the whole Palladium going up like Supper Club on a Tuesday.

October’s Very Own lit off that one sure shot like a Hail Mary in the 4th quartet, gave his respects to the young Harlem clique and bowed out gracefully into the Los Angeles night.

Ferg got to riding around his city next as “Dump Dump” dropped, accompanied by cannons of smoke and confetti being blasted out over the crowd. It kept getting more turnt from there as Rocky ran through the Skrillex produced, “Wild For The Night.”

The mob continued dropping heavy D as it went through joints like “Trillmatic”, “Xscape” and “Told Ya.” Rocky freaked “Goldie” and “Kissing Pink” but didn’t touch on “Palace”, “Peso”, or “Purple Swag.”

Personally I thought the night belonged to Ferg, who was wilding out in the crowd and brought things to a climax by rocking the original version of “Work” immediately followed by the remix. Tommy needs to cut him a check for tucking your girl’s head in his boxers.

Last but not least Ferg broke out his 8 gold rings and 4 gold chains and turned the crowd up like Shab Shabba Ranks.

The Mob was very grateful to the city of angels for letting them come out and do their thing. They even came back and did an encore performance of “Multiply” before leaving the building.

#30DaysInLA went out with a bang with this set right here. It was definitely a night to remember. Shout out Red Bull for spoiling our city with ill music all throughout the month of November. It’s definitely something to be thankful for.

- You know ya man’s Drop Jewelz.
