This Is How We Do…
Last night The Game performed live in Reading, PA. Reverb which is notorious for their rock and hip hop concerts was a tour stop for The Game’s Atari 1992 Block Wars Tour. Reading, PA is the only Pennsylvania stop scheduled for the tour. The main focus of the tour is to promote The Game’s upcoming “1992” album. It was brought to you by Supreme Order Inc. (S.O.I.) who has brought out hip hop acts such as Jadakiss, Young M.A, Juelz Santana, and more. The doors opened around 8:00pm, when Tune2This arrived there was a line along the side of the building of people waiting to get in. The turnout was great for being a Thursday night, attendance is estimated at 400+ people.
DJ Smoke was the main DJ last night, alongside the host GZO as they both held the crowd down. DJ Smoke played New and Old School Hip Hop, Rap, and R&B. He rocked out until 10:15pm when the first opening act took the stage. First up was Mack Montega, who for going up first killed the stage and set the tone for the rest of the night. Next was Travy Don, who was featured on the first part of Mack Montega’s set. After a brief intermission, it was K.O. of StreetLawz up to perform; who kept the same energy as the artists who went on before him. Another stand out performer of the night included Roi Lush who took a moment of silence for the unfortunate events taken place in the US as the crowd put their fist in the air. Overall the opening performers were solid and had great stage presence, each act had the crowd’s undivided attention.
The rest of the night was filled with more music from DJ Smoke as he kept the crowd from getting restless waiting for The Game to hit the stage. Two hours later around 1:15am The Game still wasn’t at the venue, and the crowd became restless. There was one more special guest performance from SoCal rap artist Mitchy Slick, who represented for the West Coast and put on a great performance that had the crowd re-energized. Shortly after his performance around 1:45am The Games tour bus wrapped in “1992 Block Wars Tour” promo pulled up and out came The Game and his entourage. He finally hit the stage around 2:10am as his live band was still getting everything ready. The crowd began to boo, but that quickly turned into cheers as The Game took the stage. His first song of the night was his Kanye West produced hit “Dreams.”
Accompanied by his band, 1 guitarist, 1 bass, drums, and 2 keyboard players The Game brought a great sound to his performance; which last about 45 minutes. He performed songs from his new upcoming album “1992”, all the way back to his first album “The Documentary.” During his performance he pulled fan’s up on stage and had them chug an entire bottle of Ciroc, said “I just wanted to drink with my PA n*ggas one time.” He performed “This Is How We Do”, before calling out “I hear y’all saying Fuck Meek”, followed by “Fuck Meek Mill.” He then dropped his newly released diss record “Pest Control”, and the crowd continued to chant “Fuck Meek Mill.” He continued to perform his hit records and rapped up his performance up around 2:45am.
It’s been reported that before his show he went to Philadelphia to grab a cheese steak from Ginos. It was all captured on his Instagram, he was also in Brooklyn earlier in the day shooting the “Pest Control” video with guests such as Uncle Murda. View all his Instagram posts below.
