The below is a first hand account of the free Jay-Z concert in Detroit last night (October 4,2008). It is not intended to be an official concert review or an official article, but an attempt to bring some of your voices to the forefront to share with the world. Enjoy.
Hova ..Hova ..Hova are the screams of
thousands of fans chanting for an encore for the God MC. Jay-Z burst back on the stage like, I know
yall m******s aint ready to go, I aint ready to go, Detroit I got more
12,000 people packed the Cobo Arena, home of the
2008 Stanley Cup Champions the Detroit Redwings to see the iconic legend
Jay-Z. The city of Detroit proved,
Nobody got swagger like us. Beautiful
ladies and fly n****s attended the event d-boy fresh and swagged out. The cause for the concert was just and
necessary to make sure we know how important our vote is. Every person who attended the concert either were
or became registered voters. Jay-Z said,
I aint gonna tell you who to vote for, but Im voting for Barack Obama. OBAMA .OBAMA .OBAMA the crowd roared, they
know what time it is. Its time for a
change, REAL CHANGE.
The concert started off with a multicultural
vignette of Obama and the hope he provides all people. Then the DJ got the
females warmed up by playing Lil Wayne's smash hit Lollipop, after which, Jay-Z
emerged from the dark to an incredible Light show with, Return of the Bad
guy, from American Gangster. He moved
through classic hits from Reasonable Doubt to current hits like his verse from
Swagger Like us, to Jockin Jay-Z. He
did at least 24 or more songs.
Hovs stage presence was larger than life,
he commanded that m*******a, his interaction with the ladies well say, he
swag splashed 'em. Jay gave tha D one of
the most important concerts youll ever see in your life, truly for all those in
attendance they were part of history.
Jay-Z said, being a kid, growing up from Marcy project this is the 1st
time I really believe we can truly be anything we wanna be.
There were a lot of classic moments especially
when he posted a hilarious picture of President Bush as he end of his verse
from, American Gangster s, Blue Magic as the crowd scream with him in
unison, FUCK BUSH!!!! Thats the
sentiment of the night, out with the old and in with Real Change, Barack Obama
for President of the United States of America. These are my opinions as free
citizens of the United States of America, Jay stated.
Jay encouraged us young Detroiters to not
just register, register a friend and make sure we go out and vote on November
4th. Its the most important event in
our lives and our parent's lives.
Yes we can .And we SHALL CHANGE THE WORLD.
