The sound of an ice cold Coca-Cola can being opened was followed by Ludacris hitting the stage! This is how the three-day Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest with the EA Sports Bowl jumped off. The newly renovated State Farm Arena was filled to capacity with thousands of fans ready to kick off Super Bowl weekend a little early.
Unlike the planned half time show at Super Bowl LIII with Maroon 5, this show was nothing but ATL shawty. We got krunk with Lil Jon, TI, Gucci Mane and Jermaine Dupri and bounced and rolled with the new school sounds of Migos, Metro 21, Daily, Lil Yachty, and Lil Baby,
There were two moments the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest that made tonight one that will be etched in my mind forever. The first moment was seeing Luda’ and Jermaine Dupree on stage to perform “Welcome to Atlanta.” “Welcome to Atlanta” is a mega anthem that summarizes so many things that defined Atlanta’s night life scene in the 90’s. If you were anyone in Atlanta back in the day you hit up at least one of these spots at least once or twice a month.
Monday night, Gentlemen’s Club
Tuesday night, Im up in the velvet room, gettin fucked up
Wednesday, Im at strokers on lean
Thursday, jump clean, and I fall up in cream
Friday, Shark Bar Kaya with Frank Skee,
right on the floor is where you can find me
Saturday, is off the heezy fo’ sheezy, you can find me up in one-tweezy
Then!! The second defining moment of the night was a crazy set from the King of Krunk, Lil Jon, where he bumped ALL (well almost) all the krunk hits. I don’t care what anyone says that krunk ATL style of music is always a definite crowd pleasure at every club in the city.
Throwin’ bos and leanin’ and rocking on the floor at the State Farm Arena took me back to when Atlanta was the center of the universe for hip hop music. ATL SHAWTY!
