What a night BSU students had at the annual homecoming concert. In spite of the last minute changes, Gucci Mane and Chrisette Michele not being able to attend, it was still a pretty good show. Lines started forming outside of the Leonidas James Physical Complex at about 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 14 for the concert that was scheduled to start at 9 p.m.
The doors opened and the crowd slowly began to make their way into the gym. With the stage set and the lights shining, the anticipation of the night's events became overwhelming. First to the stage was one of Bowie State's own groups A-Class and Danger. This dynamic duo not only performs on stage together, they are also brothers. A-Class stated that he has been rapping since the age of 12.
When asked what advice the artists could give to aspiring rappers and musicians, they stated, "Have a dream, study hard, stay in school." A-Class plans to continue his career while also helping his brother to jumpstart his. These two are no strangers to Bowie State; they performed at Yard Fest, and were the winners of Bowie's Got Talent. In the near future they plan to release a mix tape together and move on to further their own individual careers.
Wacka Flocka Flame has become a major artist in such a short span of time. He performed and gave an excellent show. Students were dancing and singing along with his music throughout his entire performance. Wacka made sure to engage and interact with the audience and by doing his famous head shake. When he jumped off stage and into the crowd, everyone went wild! When asked how he felt about his performance Wacka Flocka stated, "I feel good, the performance felt good. It was hot on that stage though!" It was pretty obvious how hot the lights were on the stage because midway through the show; he removed he shirt and closed the show in his undershirt.
When asked if BSU students could expect him to visit the campus again he stated, "No." he then followed through with a laugh and said, "Yeah, I'll be back. It was cool. The crowd was feeling it." Finally, Wacka Flocka Flame stated that he has just released his album entitled "Flockaveli." The album was released on Oct. 5 and can be purchased at your local entertainment store.
The final act of the night was superstar Rick Ross. As he made his way to the stage and the music for his big hit "BMF" began to play, the crowd went crazy. They began to sing and dance as soon as the beat dropped. Ross moved throughout the stage as he performed a few of his greatest hits to get the crowd moving. As he closed the night and left the stage, reporters were able to get one question in for Ross before he moved onto his next destination.
A reporter from BSU-TV asked, "What up-and-coming projects are you working on?" Ross then replied by saying, "Teflon Don is in stores right now, the next up-and-coming project is something that me and Diddy got on the way, and that's how it's going down." Ross did an excellent job. This was his second time to BSU in the past two years. WANT TO SEE MORE IMAGES LIKE THESE? GO TO MARCOKAYPHOTOGRAPHY.COM AND SEARCH "COLLEGIATE"
