The Weeknd Live in Ft. Lauderdale

A week ago I drove up to Ft. Lauderdale from where I am right now,  Little Torch Key.


Now don’t get me wrong Little Torch can party its balls off, but last Wednesday I had to leave my cabin and go see The Weeknd.  I been followin him since Bendey first introduced me about a year ago. And it just so happens he was havin’ his first South Florida performance…hell the guy has only performed a couple times in the US so far (he’s Canadian).

It was my first time at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale and I gotta say the place is pretty sweet for concerts.  First come, first serve for spots, two levels, plenty of bars to access, and judging by the aroma of the venue, little to no security.

…see what I did there?


There weren’t any openers.  Just the Weeknd himself.  Sadly I didn’t get that close to the stage, (sorry DKAliens), but it allowed me to move around the area and get different shots.

ImageAs for the concert itself, his performance was okay, I enjoyed it.  With time I think he’ll have better stage presence, he still has a lot of time to grow.  Abel definitely has a large following and I still think its only a matter of time before he floods the radio waves, however his music is definitely darker than his buddy’s, Drake, so time will tell.  His trilogy of free mixtapes were fire.

I was happy he played my favorite song of his, Glass Table Girls (see above).  Anyways, after the concert, and probably during, I’d estimate that about 17 new babies were conceived.  The Weeknd knows how to set dat mood.

In other news, in a couple weeks I’ll get to see Frank Ocean at the same venue, pretty pumped.  Fast forward to August and I’ll be seeing both of them at Lollapalooza in the Chi #huzzah.

DKA out.


Wanna see Young Moolah dance his balls off?  Of course you do.

(Please ignore my drunken douche-ass in the video.  My apologies)

Yawp.  On April 1st, a few friends and I decided to head down to The Fontainebleau to experience Liv on Sundays.  Turns out, Lil Wayne decided to stop by as well.  He sang. He danced. He shot the Liv cannon.

Around 1am is the time I arrived at The Fontainebleau with my buddy Trevor.  As I walked up to the lobby, I took one last pull from the Franzia bag, slapped the hell out of it and discarded it in the appropriate trash receptacle.  Classy.  Once we got into the lobby, we met up with our friends and walked passed the entire crowd (it probably helped that our friends were 5 lovely ladies, but I’ll just say its b/c of The DKA Life’s popularity of course).  After a quick frisk and 60 dollars of cover later ouch, but always worth every penny. We were in.

Whoop!As the night went on, I saw on twitter that Liv had confirmed a big special guest and DJ Stevie J was yellin’ out that some of the New York Yankees were there, as well as the WWE Championship belt (Wrestlemania has just been in Miami) and Flo-Rida.  Then later, he shouted “YMCMB in the building!”and these glowsticks that were passed out.. morphed into these.

That’s right– Young. Money. Glowsticks.

It had to have been around 3am before Mr. Carter made an appearance.  And unbenounced to me, I turned around and there he was, Weezy F Baby & Don’t Forget the F Baby….right behind me, about to get on stage.  A few videos were taken before my camera died :(.  And sadly, my iPhone 3GS just couldn’t handle the bass at Liv.

So here are a few entertaining videos that I took before the untimely death of my battery.

The joy in his face above is priceless.

“Boy you got the belt? Hold up, he got the belt eyyy he got the belt”

Lil Wayne was definitely in his own zone.  None the less he provided an entertaining evening for all those in attendance, myself included.  Many of you know that I think people go a liiiiitttttle too ape shit for Lil Wayne, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t enjoy first row at an impromptu concert by him.  I won’t deny that he’s talented and I have many of his albums

Anywho, we didn’t get back in till about 5:30am and I was thursty hongry tired.  And thus, the night ended and I flew back to Michigan that day.  Definitely one of my best nights in Miami yet.

DKA out.

Just the radio rip for now.  EDIT: Dropped early.  Nice. I’ll try and update it tomorrow when the official release drops.

Ooooo the beat is sooo soo thurrssty.

“Let the suicide doors up.  I threw suicides on the tour bus. I threw suicides on the private jet. You know what that mean? I’m fly to death” – Kanyeeeezy

Big Sean brings heat as well.  2 chainz sounded great on the song too.

Megapost of Music. QuESt, Childish, Ye, Mac Miller.

First up, Miami’s own QuESt.  I had heard a track or two from him last year. “If You Wanna” that caught my ear, but his other songs at the time just didn’t really stand out to me.  Well, that’s changed now after his last mixtape ‘Fear Not Failure’.  He brings out a new vibe and I’m a fan.

Check out the trailer below.

I’ve given this mixtape a couple listens to and it gets The DKA Life seal of approval.  The production has alot of electronic influence, which is always welcome.  A lot of the album…I mean mixtape, also has a Weeknd feel/sound production wise.  However, its a bit more uplifting than the Weeknd.  Definitely one of the best, complete projects I’ve heard thus far this year.

Hopefully I’ll get to see him live before I leave the 305.  I look forward to hearing more of his work.


…I posted it first for a reason, go download it.

aaaand of course, I gotta give you the new Childish Gambino tracks that dropped (one’s a feature in his fellow producer/singer Ludovin’s new project)  Looking forward to Donald’s mixtape….errr Mixtape EP dropping later this year.

Ludovin’s “Tricks” ft. Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino “Eat Your Vegetables”

Boy, this came outta no where.  Funkmaster Flex & DJ Khaled dropped this lil Kanye joint today, “Theraflu”.   So so so coooold Yeeezy.  Kanye goin off on some dudes.  Can’t wait for the new kicks to drop.  My boy Philly is gonna have to school me on how to get them exclusive kicks.

…and stay tuned for GOOD Friday.

Yeah, I been slacking.  Mac Miller dropped this mixtape, ‘Macadelic’, off 2 weeks ago I believe.  I’ve enjoyed it.  This mixtape is a bit more mature and is a solid project that’s worth the download.

(Download Here)

Well, I think that’s all I got for now.  I need to post more often, but I was busy working the ER and partying my ass off.  I’m home now, but when I get back to Miami, expect a couple more posts.  Definitely had an insane night at Liv that I’ll be blogging about.


That is all.  DKA out.

Perhaps the greatest game to hit the internetz since Treadmillasaurus Rex (see below).


Ladies and gentlemen I present to you: Kanye Zone.  A completely new and innovative interactive flashgame that far surpasses any and all internet technology itself.  It is the quintessential reason the internet was created.  Well, this and memes.


Enjoy friends.

18 year old Miami sensation Cris Cab drops off his latest mixtape Echo Boom, the highly anticipated follow up to his previous mixtape, Foreward.  This tape is sure to impress with production from Wyclef, Pharrell, and 88 Keys.


Needless to say, I’m very excited to put this on replay, and you should too.  Cris Cabs fan base is growing and you may be able to see him at a city near you.  I was lucky enough to see him at the intimate Bardot, right here in his hometown of Miami.  Peep his cover of Black and Yellow below. Sorry Bardot, I used my camera.
