It was a sold out event with spectators showing up as early as 3:30pm, full of anticipation for the 8pm show. DJ Relly Rell kicked if off with hot music and a display of turntablism as the steadily growing audience baked itself. The venue ended up being packed with 3000 stoners.
Once host Sheist Bubz tossed out some giveaways from the smokers club and gave a shout out to those who celebrate 4/20 everyday the show kept rolling. Frais, JStash, Young Roddy + Trademark Da Skydiver, Smoke Dza, Lil Herb, Domo Genesis blessed the stage. And then the moment everyone had been waiting for…Statik Selekta entered the stage and got the crowd chanting until Joey Badass emerged. He lit the stage to a whole other level. He performed all his hits, gave a Dilla tribute, introduced us to Ma and Pops Badass in the balcony, had Nyck Caution and Kirk Knight rock, started a mosh pit, crowd surfing, a midnight holla for the official start of 4/20, and just shenanigans with his pro era fam. Beast Coast indeed. It was so live!
Pro Era and the Smokers Club are working together to try to build smoker culture and get marijuana legalized, especially in NY. They do this through making music, putting on events, raising awareness and community building because this movement is underground, not mainstream. I was definitely able to learn a lot, make some new friends while having a blast. I was even blessed by the edibles fairy. I am definitely looking forward to next years celebration.
