I did not attend the Hackney Weekender nor did i attend the Watch The Throne tour, but thanks to Hackney Weekender I could enjoy the Watch The Throne experience from the comfort of my own bed. OMG, that shit was CRAY!
BBC host a free festival, Radio 1's Big Weekend, every year in different venues and this year it was hosted at the Hackney Marshes and it is held over a period of 2 days. There are 6 different stages( Main stage, In Music We Trust Stage, 1xtra Stage, Dance Arena, DJ stage and BBC Introducing stage) that headlined different acts from Boy Better Know, Sean Paul, Jack White and many others. To be honest, the 1xtra and Main stage were the only ones i was interested, 1xtra stage headlined Nigerian megastar D'Banj who performed his major hit song 'Oliver Twist' but other songs such as Suddenly, Scape Goat, Gbono Feli, Critical featuring Ikechukwu, these are all songs that were not as popular in the UK as Oliver Twist was so to hear them on stage at the Hackney Weekend was pretty amazing; also the crowds reception to him was amazing i didnt really expect it; he also brought out K'Switch (his younger brother) and Ikechukwu. His performance was pretty good, he brought a bit of Nigeria, had the CEO dancers (who i have to admit did their thing) lebete!
Jay x Kanye.
Cn only be described as an epic performance.
When the flag dropped and Yeezy came out and Otis dropped, then N***** in Paris came on, it was GAME OVER; i jumped on my bed and starting rapping along, they even created a mosh pit, a FUCKING MOSH PIT. Even King Bey was in the mosh pit. EPIC MOMENT.
KING BEY IN A MOSH PIT! FUCKING HELL, MOSHING OUT TO N***** IN PARIS.
THEY EVEN DROPPED N I P AGAIN. LEGENDARY
it was one hell of a night, and i enjoyed it all from my bedroom.
