Tonight, Chicago’s RSVP Gallery, held a show at the House of Blues, featuring Virgil Abloh’s DJ collective, BEEN TRILL, @IBHAPPY and the headliner ASAP Rocky.
If you’ve been following the site, you’re more than familiar with the Chicago Police Department’s/House of Blues’ ban of the Bogus Boys from performing on the bill. Late last week, the venue or the CPD (it’s still not clear) deemed L.E.P.’s music too violent, and banned them for performing as part of the concert.
Well, as a big middle finger to the system, ASAP Rocky and the ASAP Mob brought out the L.E.P. Bogus Boys to close out their set. Count and Moonie absolutely brought the House (of Blues) down with their staple “Chicago N*****,” followed by a “FUCK CPD” chant (while Rocky crowd surfed) and their new single “Benjamin Frankin.” You can’t keep a Bogus Boy down — print that.
Directly after the Bogus Boys surprised the crowd and performed their hits, Chief Keef’s GBE crew (sans Keef, of course) with Fredo Santana and SD joined ASAP for “I Don’t Like.” The grouping of the ASAP Mob, L.E.P. Bogus Boys and GBE in one place almost broke the stage, and the House of Blues shut the show down within a matter of seconds.
Speaking as a seasoned vet of rap concerts, this was far and away the best show I’ve seen thus far in 2012. Rumors swirled that Kanye West, Big Sean and Pusha T were too attend, but honestly, they weren’t needed tonight. It was that dope.
