Rumors of a Jeremih Impersonator Circulate Following Houston Performance

screen-shot-2016-12-02-at-11-37-35-am

2016 just gets weirder and weirder.

Following their stop in Chicago earlier this week, Jeremih and PartyNextDoor’s Summer’s Over Tour headed to Houston last night — except Bossip is reporting that ‘Mih never actually hit the stage.

Per Bossip, fans in Houston were treated to a performance from a Jeremih imposter that performed with shades and a hood on the entire time rather than ‘Mih himself. Why, you ask? Well, word has it that Jeremih still was upset following an incident during his Chicago performance where his sound got cut, leading him to leave the stage.

Says Bossip:

We’re told that the reason Jeremih threw a temper tantrum and stormed off stage in Chicago was because he tried to go over his allotted time as the opening act and PND’s folks had the sound man cut his music. That brings us to last night in Houston. We’re told that Jeremih was so mad that he was relegated to a mere opener that he sent his homeboy out on stage disguised as him to lip-sync his songs!

I don’t know if I believe that a fake Jeremih hit the stage last night, but hey — stranger things have happened this year. Watch footage from last night’s performance from Jeremih(?) below and stay tuned for updates.

Twista and Jeremih join forces to recreate the classic flick Friday in their new video for “Next To You.” As you remember, the song sampled here was prominently featured in the 1995 film. For the video, however, they take it to the front porch like Smokey and Craig — with B-Hype playing Twista’s partner in crime. Hopefully nobody got knocked the **** out, maaaaan.

Watch the clip below.

Jeremih & PartyNextDoor live at the Aragon on November 29

summers-over-tour

On November 29th, Jeremih and PartyNextDoor’s Summer’s Over tour touches down in Chicago, just as Fall is coming to a close. The concert takes place Tuesday 11/29 at the Aragon Ballroom. Doors open at 7pm, and it’s an all ages affair.

You can still buy tickets right here, and I highly suggest you do so now before it sells out. We just did a show with Jeremih in LA last weekend, and I have to admit it was one of the best performances I’ve seen in 2016. I highly suggest you grab tickets and be there. This will not be one to miss — especially in his hometown.

Here’s what it was like to see YG perform “FDT” alongside Jeremih in Los Angeles

As a Los Angeles resident obsessed with Chicago-based rap music, I was hyped to see Jeremih and Joey Purp at The Mayan at Fake Shore Drive & Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysInLA show. I didn’t expect to see YG, but it became the highlight of my week.

The Joey Purp mixtape iiiDrops is one of my favorite releases from the SaveMoney collective in recent memory. That’s saying something, of course, considering SaveMoney artists include rap stars like Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Towkio and Nico Segal (fka Donnie Trumpet). Plus, I had heard incredible things about what it was like to see Jeremih perform live. Needless to say, it wasn’t hard to convince multiple friends to join me for the gig.

None of the headliners disappointed and lived up to all my hopes and dreams from their energy. But here’s what hasn’t left my mind since leaving: I got to see Compton’s YG perform “Fuck Donald Trump” the same week that Trump was elected President of the United States.

Friday night, FSD descended upon LA to throw our biggest show to date alongside Red Bull Sound Select for their yearly 30 Days in LA concert series, which brings 30 concerts to the LA area for the entire month of November. It pairs the biggest headliners from around the world with the best rising talent in the Red Bull Sound Select pool, and this year did not disappoint.

Thanks to the success we’ve had within the Chicago market with Red Bull Sound Select, the artists and our concerts, they decided to let us do our thing in LA, so we had to bring our A-game. The bill boasted a stellar lineup, including a headlining performance from Jeremih, as well as a special guest set from Chief Keef. Joey Purp, Warhol.SS and DJ sets from someguynamedty and DJ Oreo rounded out the lineup for the sold out event. The show was held at the historic Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles, with over 1500 people in the house.

Fans who purchased tickets before sellout were treated to an unforgettable night including surprise appearances and performances from YG and The Game. It was truly a night to remember. So just know, that we’re just getting started. Expect more of the same around the globe in the future.
