Funk Volume – Recap

This past weekend we all piled into Cervantes for two nights in a row for the infamous Funk Volume tour. This tour was put on by Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton and Dj Hoppa. We at Grimey Gatsby were beyond stoked to see both Hopsin and Dizzy on the same stage together.

We arrived at Cervantes early to pick up our press pass and tickets. Had a guy ask me to sell my ticket to him on the way out of the box office. I kindly told the gentlemen that the extra ticket was already spoken for. This show was 100% sold out so of course people were scrambling to look for a means for a last minute golden ticket. And as soon as we entered the venue we found out why it was sold out. There were people all the way back to the entrance. Which I’ve never really seen to many times, and we’ve been to a lot of shows! You could smell the sweet aroma of that godspread throughout the whole venue. We brought our own stash we were waiting to blaze at the right time. Funk Volume finally kicked off and everyone crammed the front of the stage. This is normally when we head over to the media section to take pics. But the security guard said absolutely no press for tonight’s show. I asked if I could snap like 5 good pics and I’ll be on my way. He told me normally I would say no, but since I’ve seen you in here taking pictures multiple times I’ll let you take a couple but then you “gots to bounce” he said. Those few pics that I got though were on point. Thanks again to the guard for hooking it up. By this time the crowd was to hype!! We saw blunts being blazed all around. One kid even thought it be cool to throw a beer up on stage…….not cool homie,not cool. Hopsin puts on a pretty unique show. He started out playing some of his older stuff like “am I a psycho,kill her (story of Tomica Wright)” and our personal favorite “Fort Collins.” This is when Dizzy joined the stage alongside Hopsin. They played this track among others back to back. Then Hopsin, Dizzy and Dj Hoppa decided they were gonna do a three man stage dive. Which resulted in All three of them climbing to the second tier to jump off of. But when I say jump….I mean Dizzy did a front flip off the tier into the crowd and Hopsin does a fucking backflip! (peep the video) The show was outstanding! No wonder there was 2 nights! Thanks to everyone that came out and special thanks the ones that kept their cool and didn’t decide to take part in the 4-5 fights that broke out that night. Big ups and see you next time on the main stage.
