The Indie Life Concert Series feat. Philadelphia FREEWAY [RECAP]


The last weekend in March served as the second installation of The Indie Life Concert Series, that was held in Washington, DC. The headliner on this series was Philadelphia Freeway. Many of us were introduced to Freeway during the Roc-A-Fella dynasty late 90's/early 2000's. Before Freeway took to the stage, The Board Administration's Black Cobain took to the stage with sore throat and all but still delivered on stage without missing a beat. Next up was Beam Up Entertainment's Kingpen Slim who brought performed his single "Goosebumps" and had much crowd participation as he performed.
Throughout the LIVE performances, well known artist Peekaso was on stage painting. He stated earlier in the night that he found out about the show the day of, packed his supplies in his car and made it down to U St Music Hall in hopes to do an impromptu. He was a great addition to an already very energetic crowd. The man of the hour took to the stage around midnight. the crowd basically erupted as many have not seen Freeway LIVE in some years. Freeway did not disappoint. He payed homage to Nate Dogg who recently passed away by performing "All My Life". He also performed many of his classics including "Flipside", "What We Do" & many more.

He was even joined on stage by another Philadelphia artist Jakk Frost. The Indie Life Concert Series was full of surprises and U St Music Hall was filled with Hip Hop supporters. However, a little known fact of the night was that the creator of the series SmCity opted out of performing because he wanted to allow the other artists to be able to perform their entire sets, as the show started late due to some technical difficulties. That is a great example of a stand up individual and an artist who just does not care about himself but his peers as well.


The next series will be held on Sunday, April 24th featuring Big K.R.I.T., along side Freddie Gibbs, Smoke Dza, SmCity, Muggsy Malone & FSM.
