Watch the Throne

Tuesday night I had the pleasure of attending Jay-Z & Kanye West's Watch the Throne Tour. Anybody who knows me, knows how I feel about Kanye West. He's my favorite living artist. (Rest in peace to the leader of the Jackson 5) Also, It was my first time seeing Hov in concert so excitement isn't a word to adequately describe the feeling I felt when Sean Carter was 8 feet away from me. (VIP Seats, fancy, I know) I was able to see my favorite living artist, Kanye West and even shake hands with him. & Yes, I washed my hands afterward. The energy of the them x the energy of the crowd x the super liveness of my sister and I in VIP = One of the Best Concerts I have ever been to.

VIP has it's perks man. Other than sitting DIRECTLY in front of the second stage, I sat next to Tina Knowles... yeah, Beyonce's mom. So I basically sat next to Beyonce right? Lol. Here's the funny thing about that... my sister, who is the ultimate Beyonce stan noticed "Julius" securing the perimeter before the show started. You're probably wondering who Julius is? So was I. According to my sister, that's Beyonce's bodyguard. We're not even gonna get into her knowing him by name... SO, we initially expected Beyonce to walk into the VIP box sometime soon. My sister was hyperventilating. Luckily for me and the people around us, Beyonce didn't come out, her mother Miss Tina did.

During the show as I examined the area I noticed some other famous folks in the VIP area, one being the Dallas Maverick's Dirk Nowitzki chillin' BEHIND me with some black chick. I SEE YOU DIRK! Had he been a Laker I may have cared a bit ;]

ALSO, after the show, I noticed VIRGIL ABLOH, just chillin'! I was like "OMG! THAT'S VIRGIL ABLOH!" & my sister was like "Who is that?" and I almost fainted. I called him over by saying "Mr. Virgil!" and he laughed. I didnt' realize how ridiculous that sounded. He was such a nice guy. Before the picture he asked "What's your name?" I said "Yinka" and he said "Fantastic".

In conclusion, Watch the Throne tour was nothing short of amazing and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to go.

My ticket, excuse my chipped nail.
