Pitchfork Music Festival: Day Two Recap 07.18.15
What a rainy day here in Chicago. With humid weather and heavy rain pouring, the festival shuts down due to severe storms. You would think all vibes would be off as Pitchfork Music Festival commences. Nah. Excitement continues to roll as day two rolls out with A$AP Ferg and Vic Mensa all breaking ground on the Blue Stage.
Still suited in designer garbs aka a expensive as black tee, Ferg shrugs off the heavy rain and debuts new tunes worthy of fuccboi drool. Even with mudd flying from all corners of the stage, Ferg shows off his freestyle skills. Rapping over summer hits like “Push It” and spinning his own version of Rocky’s “Work” verse, Ferg brings it back by closing it off with “Shabba” and an ode to the late A$AP Yams. As the crowd continuously chants for the late Yams the show slowly comes to a close.
Vic Mensa brings out Towkio:
Always showing love to his city and crew, Mensa in typical fashion shows out with his crew. Towkio tossed up a few songs as the crowd waited for Mensa and showed everyone why Mensa isn’t the only Savemoney member to hold their own. As Mensa enters the stage dressed in a fit decked with the words “Kill The Poor,” he gives us some of his famous bangers. From “Wimme Nah” to his recent “U Mad,” this young superstar continously shows the city why he is THE next big thing.
