What better way to spend Memorial Day weekend than with music, drinks, and hype crowds? The family of TGP invited The Rapfest out to New York, over on flushing avenue to attend the Dope BBQ.
The weather was a big turn off at the beginning of the event and people were even trying to sway folks to leave. However, the shindig continued and boy they were wrong! It took the team about 30 minutes to find parking; which was a bummer especially in New York traffic. My aggravation subsided quickly as the lady at the ticket booth was extremely pleasant and the first DJ set really set the vibe when you walk into the facility.
Now if you are a Hennite (Henny lover), the slushy lines were totally worth the wait. Throughout the night I had two rounds and it was cool experience. From the main stage to the crowd floor; bodies wobbled, twerked, swayed, and sweat! The soft served drinks hit the spot and kept the energy and liquids flowing.
The crowd began to erupt as the DJ warmed up the crowd for Trey Songz. Now this wasn’t an ordinary performance. Trey had all the ladies and I mean all the ladies singing word for word his songs. IT wasn’t long before the crowd took the dancing to the next level.
Much after all the baby making music, people were asked to go to the secondary stage located on an exterior patio. Turns out TGP had another special guest in the build, Phresher. The Ya Ya/Energy King delivered a sensational performance to close out the night.
Over all, the Dope BBQ was simple yet had growing energy which represented the name of the event. The Rapfest would like to thank the people at TGP for the opportunity for a wild night ( I’ll leave the after party up to the imaginations).
