Kanye West Brings Sand To The Beach: The Talented Rapper Performs At The Revel Resort In Atlantic City

Over this weekend, I went back home (South Jersey) to attend Kanye West’s concert at the new Revel Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This was my first time going to A.C. this summer. As a child, my family and I always took trips to A.C., especially during the hot summer days. Swimming in the beach and relaxing on the sand are two of my favorite summer hobbies. This was the first time Kanye headlined his own solo show in over a year.  Kanye recently wrapped up his ‘Watch The Throne’ tour with Jay-Z. This past Memorial Day weekend, Beyoncé also performed at the Revel Resort for their grand opening.

Kanye opened-up his set with “Dark Fantasy” which featured a live band, ballerinas and a large crane. He was dressed in red jeans, a leather jacket and a white tee-shirt paired with his red Louis Vuitton Don sneakers. The only guest to grace the stage with Kanye was Pusha T. He helped Kanye perform their chart topping single “Runway”. Kanye also covered Phil Collins “In The Air Tonight” and performed some of his biggest hits including “Lost In The World,” “Stronger”, “Way Too Cold” and his verse to “Mercy” during his set. Kanye changed outfits one time throughout his two-hour set. He also wore a white button down shirt over a white tee-shirt, and blue jeans paired with blue sneaker. When you have a catalogue as long as Kanye’s you can rocked a sold-out crowd two nights in a row all by yourself.

Saturday (July 7), was the second and final show and just like the opening night, Kanye lived up to the hyped and pleased his fans once again. During his set, Kanye brought out Pusha T again, but this time it was for their latest single “New God Flow” which is featured on their collaborative album Cruel Summer which arrives August 7. Kanye’s girlfriend Kim Kardashian and NBA player Steve Nash were also in attendance, cheering on Yeezy from backstage. Peep the pictures below:

Currently Obsessed With: $1,195 Gucci Suede Front Jersey Varsity Bomber Jacket

I’m currently obsessed with this $1,195 Gucci Suede Front Jersey Varsity Bomber Jacket. The jacket features a brown suede front panel connected to navy cotton sleeves and back, two side pockets, press-stud fastenings, then ends with ribbed cuffs and hem. With this jacket, I will pair it with some Men’s Ricky True Religion jeans and $495 Gucci blue nylon guccissia with cuir color leather trim sneakers. Are you feeling this jacket and how would you wear it?

Download Now: Cassidy’s New Mixtape ‘Mayhem Music (Apply Pressure 3)’

Philly’s own Cassidy popped out of nowhere and released his new mixtape, entitled Mayhem Music (Apply Pressure 3). The 22-track disc has collaborations with 50 Cent, Jadakiss, A.R. Ab, Fred Da Godson and more. In 2003, Cass rose to fame with the success of his first major single “Hotel” Ft. R. Kelly which reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100. Cass’ second major single “Get No Better” Ft. Mashonda helped his debut album, Split Personality go gold (selling over 500,000 copies). In 2010, Cass dropped his latest album, C.A.S.H. (Cash A Straight Huslta), the album basically flopped, only selling just over 5,000 copies in the first week. Now he is off his two-year hiatus and putting his focus back into music.
