The legend.

I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile now.   Actually I’m surprised I haven’t yet considering the absurd amount of free time I have on my hands.  Anyrate, I’m moving down to Miami in a couple weeks, but I wanted to take some memories from Michigan State University with me.  I’ve absolutely loved my experience here and wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.  I have met so many amazing people that have helped shaped me into the person that I am today and I’m forever great-full for all of you who have been apart of my life.

I wish I had a positive caption for the Library. But that's not gonna happen. Its not even gonna get a fullsize photo.

I have plenty of pictures of my friends n I stumbling around late at night, but I never really took the time to capture MSU’s beauty during the day, the way I saw it every time I walked to class.  Its really too bad that most of our school year takes place during the winter, but at the same time it might be the blistering cold, that helps me appreciate the fall and spring around here so much more.

So basically, these are pictures for when I miss MSU and all the good times I’ve had here.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

East Holmes, my home freshman year

The Chem Building that always seemed to be under contruction. Many student's dreams have been crushed here.

Which one is going to grace your desktop wallpaper? hah.

The gardens outside the BPS building.

Well, that’s it for now.  I still need to do one more round of photos and get the Breslin and Wonders, but I still have a few weeks left.  You should be able to click any of these for a larger view.

Shit! It wouldn’t be a MSU photoshoot without these two! What was I thinkin’!

Finals theme songs.

Twice a year finals show up unwelcomed.  To cope with them, I listen to songs and I’ve noticed, each time finals roll around, I get one song that plays more than others, they just come to play naturally.

Last year it was Arab Money.  Every 20 minutes or so, Rauch..or whoever I was studying with would see me do the lil dance & know what song I was jammin to

This year’s winner is straight from 1999:

XV x Pac Div x Big Sean x Clipse x Kid Cudi @ MSU

April 12th’s concert was full of surprises.  What was scheduled to be a Kid Cudi show opened by Clipse ended up being a dream hip hop line up complete with XV, Pac Div, Big Sean, Clipse, and Kid Cudi.  Another amazing concert was put on by RHA.  The concert was at Michigan State University’s auditorium and tickets sold out in 8 minutes.  I was lucky enough to grab row 7 tickets and made my way to front row.   First up was Vizzy vizzy vizzy.

I was almost more hyped to see XV than all the other artists.  I been followin this kid for almost a year now, his last two mixtapes 30 minute layover (made in only 4 days) and Everybody’s Nobody (tons of great features).  Anyone that grew up in the 90s can appreciate all of his references.  Vizzy killed the set and got people more hyped than the other artists did.  He easily could have opened for Cudi by himself.  I look forward to seeing him perform again.  Keep up with him on his blog and stay on the look out for his debut album, The Kid With the Green Backpack.

Vizzy Vizzy Vizzy X to the V

Cliff Skighwalker & Rodney James help put on another great show.  Shout out to their hard work.

Pac Div made their first ever stop in Michigan and performed several hits from their mixtape Church League Champions.  I was happy to see them play “We the Champs”, they also performed “Knuckleheadz” and “Shut up”.  Another one of my favorites from their album is “No No”, I wished they would have played that, but they still put on a great show regardless.  DJ Sean was on his rap shit as usual.  Download the Lever 2009 mixtape for more Pac Div music.

Next up was the surprise appearance of the homie Big Sean!  The last time Big Sean was at Michigan State, he killed it.  You can read my full concert review featuring Fly. Union, and interview with Mike Posner HERE.  He performed Supa Dupa Lemonade.  The song that’s been on repeat for a good two months now.  Shout out to Bendey for the assist with the video.

Next up was Clipse.  I was happy they played their classic hit Grindin’ and several others off their new album Till the Casket Drops, an album that really surprised me.  Go take a listen if you haven’t already.  My battery was gettin’ low so I wasn’t able to capture as much as I wanted, but here’s a picture.  My favorite performance by them had to be “Keys Open Doors”.

Till the Casket Drops!

And then Mr. Mescudi, aka Domingo Brown, aka Kid Cudi graced the stage.  I was lucky enough to see him perform The Hip Hop Hangover Tour with 88 Keys and Asher Roth next door at the Royal Oak Theater, you can read my full summary of that show HERE.

You can call him Moon Man

He performed many of his new hits including “Already home” (pretty sure that made my boy Clark’s night), “That Tree”, as well as “Memories”.  He also gave us a sneak peak an a cappella version of Groovin, which will be on his next album Cudder & The Revolution of Evolution.

Download that right HERE.

Cudi ended the show in style.  Just like he did at Royal Oak, he played the last 3 songs in succession and the whole crowd RAGED.  Nothin like fist pumping jammin’ to Memories and Day n Night Crooker’s remix to end the night.

UPDATE:  The concert is being put on by RHA and tickets can be bought via Wharton Center Box Office.

Just keep refreshing that page, the sale date is wednesday 3/23 @ 1pm.

You heard it here first.  None other than Scott Mescudi will be performing at Michigan State.  I would guess he’ll be performing at the Auditorium, but I have my fingers crossed for Fairchild Theater, since its a smaller venue.  I’ll keep you updated.

Drake coming to MSU April 14th “Away From Home Tour”

Pretty much what’s in the heading.  Drake & K-OS and The Lights are going to be invading Michigan State University April 14th.  Don’t know the location yet, but you can bet The DKA Life and Code 2 Ave will get a full report on it.
