Big As The What?…

Big+As+The+What%3F...

On February 27th, rappers Drake and J. Cole came to KeyBank Center in Buffalo as part of their It Was All a Blur: Big as the What tour. Its not often that artists of this size come to western New York and it was clearly a massive event for Buffalo.

Before the event even started, there were some problems that many people ran into, the line. The line to get in was absolutely massive and stretched around the entire arena due to a few issues. One, there were only two entrances and thousands of people trying to get in. Two, the security was set up horribly. This lead to many people being stuck in place for what seemed to be forever. And finally, many of the cops were telling people to move to one side because it was “faster,” but this ended causing an unbelievably long line as people kept going to that side.

 

The show started at around 9:00 pm and started off with an ESPN interlude introducing us to the show. After that, the screen shows Drake and a younger version of himself in a locker room before the box that he’s in opens up and its revealed he was on a stage the whole time. He opens up the show with some slower songs on the side stage before moving over to the main stage.

 

At the main stage, Drake preforms some of his most iconic songs, with the crowd going crazy for tracks like Over, Headlines, Energy, MELTDOWN and more. After this he moves over to the sound stage.

 

Once over there, he turns the place into a nightclub with some of his more danceable tracks like Passionfruit, Controlla and Feel No Ways to name a few. He also gets hoisted over the crowd, where he has some more fan interaction before he leaves backstage.

 

After that, ESPN is back in declaring that someone has just entered the building, before they cut to J. Cole walking out of the tunnel onto the main stage. The crowd went insane as Cole instantly opened up with MIDDLE CHILD. Cole was a great performer, giving shout outs to local rappers from Buffalo and keeping the crowd alive.

 

After Love Yourz, Drake comes back out, and the two come together to preform their songs that they have together. In the Morning and First Person Shooter. J. Cole leaves a little bit after that and the stage is all his. He finished with some more tracks such as IDGAF and You Broke my Heart before moving back to the side stage he started on.

 

Here he performs Slime You Out, with a fan on stage with him as well. After the song is over. He says this fan has been disrespecting his city and the crowd. After that, a huge bucket of slime is dumped on the guy and that ends the show.

 

I wasn’t the only Victor student to go, “The best concert I have ever been to,” Margaret Johnson said when asked about her thoughts on the show. “Easily”

 

“The atmosphere was insane,” Lylah Herrneckar said. “It was an amazing show.”

 

Its not often we get an artist of Drake’s status this close to Victor, and he provided an amazing show.
