Last night was The Midwest PowerFest at the UIC Pavilion presented by PowerMove, SMG, & 1017 Bricksquad. All of Chicago showed up to enjoy the concert which featured special guest, Mr. Guwop himself, Gucci Mane.
The night was a situation from start to finish. Everybody was excited to see Gucci, but before he came out, some of Chicago’s hottest acts came out to bless the stage. There were performance’s by artists such as KD Young Cocky, SMG’s Lil Breeze, Jo Rodeo, Seb Torgus, Bo Deal, & Lud Foe, who had the crowd going crazy. DJ V-Dub was up spinning & getting the crowd hype for what was to come. Hosts Lana J & Mr. Chicago Connect introduced the artists & kept the crowd into it. DJ Pharris came to take roll call of who was in the building & Mr. PowerMove himself, John Doe came out to turn the crowd up even more & let everybody know that the whole building was getting in KOD free for the afterparty. They made sure to say RIP Shawty Lo.
Finally after spinning some Gucci tracks, the TrapGod himself came to hit the stage. The whole building went crazy. As soon as he came out he performed First Day Out Tha Feds. Then he launched into some of his classics like Wasted, Half A Brick, Freaky Gurl, I Don’t Love Her, Photoshoot, Heavy, Bricks, I Might Be, I’m A Dog, & Go Head (Shawty Got A *ss On Her). He had everybody losing their minds & rapping along. He brought out his beautiful lady Keyshia Kaoir as well who was shining in her custom fit. It was too soon with he left the stage, he has enough songs to go on for hours. But it was a great show & a great night.
Shoutout to John Doe for making the event happen & happy belated birthday. Shoutout to Charismatic Solutions & Swank Publishing for the plug. If you missed it, you definitely missed a major event. Shoutout to Chicago for coming out & partying peacefully. We can’t wait for the next PowerMove event.
