Oh what up sunny ass Chicago? Thanks for coming through as Pitchfork 2015 opens their gates once more. A beautiful day at Union Park, I was a woman on a mission. Get lit with ILoveMakonnen.With a little over 10 mins to soak in the ambiance I headed towards the Green Stage to find not only a packed stage but an outrageous influx of homies 5’7 and above rocking visors. Shout out upper body strength for guiding me through the crowds!
ILoveMakonnen, the Super Chef of the hour came through with the wrist action as he debuted new tunes and collab favorites like “Nokia” and “Look At Wrist”. Although the crowd was relatively tame, Makonnen still kept the new music and the energy going, amping the crowd with more sweaty wrist action.
Near the middle of the set, Makonnen Facetimes his Mom (aw!) and dedicates the next few tracks in her honor. Dang! And some of us can’t even make our mamas a proper birthday card. Overall Makonnen’s set was nothing short of what I expected. For a dude who is lax as hell, his music set was a good taste to all the other artists set to perform.
Stay tune for more Pitchfork recaps and commentary!
