Tbh, I did want to see Atmosphere at The Wiltern. If he could pull through, so can they. It was on some homie shit, too. The shows become an automatic upgrade. Homeboy sells out every single show and the fans know every single word to every song. They had promised me all-access but of course, security was being extra.
First off, I want to talk about his stage presence. At the stroke of midnight, Phora finally released his first project under Warner Bros on. I want you to listen to this album and be able to relate to it. Ever since the day it was announced. At just 22 years old, homeboy signed to Warner.
I was so taken aback by it all. I got a lot of different perspectives tonight, but at the end of the day, fourth no matter where you were, you had a great time. He also told everyone he wanted them to go home with no voice. Huge thanks to the for making this happen. Another long day but all for the love of Hip Hop.
I was in the photo pit and was not ready. Genuinely thanked his fans for coming out and for all the support. And there were a lot of people. Honestly, every single thing that came out of his mouth was filled with love and positivity. And thank you for being such a positive role model to your fans. How relatable he is, just in the aspect of the struggles of life alone.
Show day is always stressful af, for the artist especially. Be able to feel and understand what I'm going through. I legit got chills reading about what happened. Had no idea he was such a kid! Second, the actual stage set up was remarkable. Even him opening his set with these lights flaring before him was so fire. This is how a Hip Hop show should be. Phora did not disappoint a single soul in that building tonight.
Like no, thank you, Phora. Honestly, the music speaks for itself. Yours Truly Forever is a movement. It was so heartfelt each time. I felt bad stealing him away from his friends but he agreed so I had to knock it out. Being that this is his hood, this was going to be the most special show of them all.
Fourth, he was so fucking interactive with the fans. What a real fucking genuine kind soul. There's so much hate and anger in this world today. That was a highlight for sure. Barely 2 songs in, he asked the crowd where his day one fans were, proceeding to ask who fucked with his last album With Love.
It reminded me of old school Hip Hop, with lyrics that actually had meaning. And they still knew the words. Being that he is so young, his fanbase is really young also. Fight for what you believe in. I say that as an almost 27-year-old, but everything that came out of his mouth made up for it. The fact that Atmosphere tweeted this… real recognize real.
. I know my music isn't for everyone. We saw someone in the parking lot after with one, and it warmed our hearts. Tonight was the last stop of his tour, also the album release show. Tonight was a show I had in my planner for months. She gets all the credit.
I always say, once artist signs to a label, the glo up begins. . . . . .
