In a room of over 200 people on Friday night, east coast and midwest rap lovers eagerly crowded the stage of Bourbon on Division to experience performances from the legendary Roc Marciano and Willie The Kid.
The two hour concert seemed like an infinite party as the artists engaged heavily with the audience, sharing their drinks, and even stopping to take pictures with fans in the front row during their performances.
Michigan native, Willie The Kid, was the first to take the stage, rapping some of his popular hits during the first hour, including, “The Guilt,” and “Let The Money Stay.” His last performance was a captivating freestyle rap poem, awing the crowd with his usage of double entendres and innuendos.
New York icon, Roc Marciano, ended the night delivering back-to-back songs, including “Death Parade,” “Fabio” and “Flash Gordon.” He also performed tracks from his new album “Marciano,” while the audience recounted every word, reminding the east coast rapper “we are real fans.”
