I have been on a concert binge these past two months because some of my favorite rappers are touring around. I have been super lucky to have purchase my tickets in advance because every concert I’ve attended have been sold out! Schoolboy Q, sold out, Post Malone Sold out, and yes, ASAP Ferg also sold out.
Today was already a busy day given that I was sick but prior to the concert, I attended a 4 hour dance workshop taught by the one and only Yanish Marshall which was also sold out, score. After that I rushed over to put my dance stuff in my brother’s car because he was meeting me downtown and yes, he was also sick. Just call us the Sick Siblings.. get it? Sick as in cool gangster …hip yeah? No. okay. We headed in and agreed to skip the moshpit madness and enjoy the show from the second level which supringly, the view wasn’t that bad. The show had started and it was dark, difficult to find spots. Everything was taken in the middle so we got comfortable on the right side. This was my first time hearing the name PlayboyCarti and maaan this guy is lit. Seats became available in the middle section, second row and we bring over our heavy duty jackets and scarfs to claim our seats.
I was snapchatting myself dancing when I was distracted by a yougin behind me. I turned around to ask “how old are you?” he raised an eyebrow, old enough. HA omg. No seriously how old are you I asked again, he replied. “Sixteen”.. bro. seriously. At this point I started to notice who I was surrounded by and they were all under the age of seventeen! Me being five years older than them, I felt obligated to make sure they were alive. I’m enjoying the concerts bobbing my head and the kid next to me asks, “do you have a cup?” uhh homie does it look like I have a cup. “no”. He pulls out a ziplock back of booze and says “I need to drink this”.. I thought to myself, yeah clearly because you don’t look hammered enough. I suggested to seal the bag and to make a hole on the bottom corner and drink it through there. What have I done. A genius idea to encourage underage drinking, at this point there was nothing else I can do and what did you expect, to grab it out of their hand?! They would attack me.
We are now considered “friends” and conversation sparks. I hear behind me some boy were about to pop Xanax?! Jesus Christ. He asked me if I had any water. “no”… that I was willing to share at least. So he proceeded to chase it with some alcohol, lovely.
My brother who is seventeen leans over and asks, “what’s Xanax?” Innocent child.
At the end of the concert, which was amazing by the way! SO HYPE. I was shocked to see more of the younger generating there than adults. What’s happening? How much younger can they be? I understand all ages isn’t limited to a certain age but what if I start seeing 14 year olds? Time will tell..
