Shoes for Running – Big Boi – Denver
Last night in Denver it was a spectacular show at Cervantes from Killer Mike and Big Boi. The “Shoes for Running” World Tour hit the Mile High in a massive way. The tour buses lined up outside the building. The crowd circling the block. The community coming together. The sound was top notch. And the show did not disappoint. Hunt swung by early in the night to catch the scene and later got some stankonya from the show. Killer Mike started off and kept the energy high all the way through. “Making me cough up here from the damn smoke, elevation, and yall keeping it real,” was a line that he told the audience during his set. It’s great to see a true showman rock the stage. “I probably play Killer Mike and Big Boi once a month because I remember the memories as a kid so well. I grew up on their sound,” from Hunt.
Big Boi tore the roof off the place with his visuals, music, and stage presence. He was larger than life and kept it cooler than a polarbear’s toenail all damn night. You can check out our Vine videos for action from the show. He had the new tracks, the old tracks, a track with Killer Mike (Ready Set Go – was blasted on “Bless Up with GG” Radio Show this morning), and he even tossed it all the way back to the beginning with some ATLiens tracks. The crowd was loving the show and the people were blasting the clouds in the air.
Big Boi donned his Red Flame Jordan 5’s with a camo fatigue suit and proper “West Savannah” snapback. Something most of the sneakers heads and fashionsistas were talking about. He is never slipping on the fashion and Killer Mike kept if Gatsby with a Rebirth shirt and Polo hoody…and his murked out pumas. The street scene never fails with the “trump tight threads.” The ladies were full of bling and the gentleman were sporting the crispiest of spring gear.
We were rocking all night from The Other Side to the Masterpiece Ballroom aka E Tuesdays to Shoes for Running Tour. It was great music all over Cervantes and we have pictures coming soon from KBS Photography of all the grime!!!!
