For the second night in a row, Pusha T took up residence at New York City’s Irving Plaza Monday (Nov. 26) to close out the second leg of The DAYTONA Tour.
After canceling a number of dates on the first leg this past summer, Pusha made up for the inconvenience with a 14-show trek across the country. Following an excellent outing the night before, fans were expecting another amazing showing on Monday, and Pusha did not disappoint.
The show got off to a great start with an opening set by newcomer Bernard Jabs. The 17-year old rapper out of Tifton, Georgia, served the audience a taste of his musical abilities with charismatic performances of “Move the Same” and “End Goal.” The young MC took some time during his set to have fun with the New York audience by engaging in a “Yerr” call and response chant. Jabs continued to bask in the New York vibes by bringing out Brooklyn native and GS9 affiliate Fetty Luciano on stage for a performance of his heat-seeking single “On the Wall.”
The alt-R&B quintet Phony Ppl took the stage shortly after to hit the audience with some neo-soul vibes. The group jammed through a list of their eclectic songs including tracks off their newly released album mō’zā-ik. Gushing vocals and funk-laced rhythms filled the spaces of Irving Plaza as “Before You Get a Boyfriend” and “Move Her Mind” had the audience moving along to the lush beats. [Read More Billboard News]
