Friday Night: Curren$y, etc. at Warehouse Live

Curren$y, Young Roddy, Corner Boy P, Monster Beats, Doughbeezy feat. Killa Kyleon, L.E.$., The Kid Named Breezy Warehouse Live April 19, 2013

Friday night, stoners from across the area came out pre-rolled and lighter-ready to participate in the large-scale smoke-out that doubled as a Curren$y concert. Spectators stood shoulder to shoulder in the ballroom of Warehouse Live while The Kid Named Breezy, L.E.$., Doughbeezy, Killa Kyleon, Corner Boy P, and Young Roddy warmed up for the headliner.

Before entering the building, you could see and smell the carbon remains of blunts, pipes, and joints escaping the establishment, as the area was filled to about 90 percent capacity when The Kid Named Breezy hit the stage. The Virginia native said he was happy to be performing here in his second home, and displayed that kind of energy behind the microphone with several tracks off his current project, 93, as the crowd participated in their hand-to-hand rituals.

Houston's own "Boss Hog Outlaws" artist L.E.$. brought the vibe back down South, with Houstonian swagger that put the crowd in a comfortable and familiar place. Hands waved and bodies swayed as L.E.$. laced gritty vocals over the slow-styled Texas beats.
