G-Eazy and ASAP Ferg were both able to engage their cult-like following into a trance of bass-heavy rap at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, CA last night. ASAP has transcended into something bigger than music; a unifying movement for the mainstream. As some ASAP principles may have been lost in the sea of popularity one remains the same, this isn’t a show with some untouchable performers on stage, but a bunch of normal dudes bringing you out to turn up together.

As ASAP is chanted on by a sea of people, the audience is unified under the principles of ratchet sophistication set forth by Ferg with a dash of positivity, also the underlying message behind G-Eazy, who’s album When It’s Dark Out has made a huge splash at the top of the billboard charts. G-Eazy has made success and mainstream popularity appealing. With management connections to Drake as well as OVO affiliation, G-Eazy is one of the most likeable guys in the hip-hop world. It’s hard to convict him of any sort of criticism because his come-up story is authentic and a real life story of success. As G-Eazy is seen with every major rap and hip-hop icon, with no negativity or false hype surrounds him. Catch G-Eazy and Ferg for tonight for round two at The Shrine for the ‘When It’s Dark Out Tour.”
