As the weekend came to an end, Pitchfork festival was an amazing experience. Over the three day weekend, there were some amazing performances that were in the city of Chicago. From Valee to Rico Nasty to even the Isley Brothers.
We had gone to the festival over the weekend and saw and captured some videos of the performers from the lineup. On day one, Virginia’s native Pusha T had walked on to the stage and gave us energy from beginning to end. With his latest project, Daytona, he provided us that vibe that made us never forget to where it was one of the projects we anticipated for in the era last year where it was back to back G.O.O.D. Music was out under the label with Kanye West. There was a particular fan, who stood out, and knew every word and Pusha gave a major salute to the kid. If you can remember the Clipse way back when they were “grinding,” then you would love where he provided the hits to the day one fans. I had actually thought Ye was going to come out with the hits Pusha was providing, but he didn’t.
On day two, Freddie Gibbs gave us energy. With his latest project that was with Madlib, he performed some tracks off of Bandana. The crowd had gone crazy when he was performing “Crime Pays.” Of course the “Set Set” rapper had to perform some classics from his earlier releases from his self-debut project.
Following Freddie’s performance, Chicago native Jeremih was on stage giving us r&b vibes. With the red panties on the mic plus a rose. He also gave out a dozen roses to fans. As an opener, there was a girl who told a story that gave us a poetic justice vibe. The “Forever I’m Ready” singer came out to “Planez” followed by “Oui” from the Late Nights album. He asked the crowd what were some songs that he wanted him to perform. Jeremih took it back to 2009 with “Birthday Sex” and it gave us memories with the hit single that took a toll on his career. As his set raps up, Jeremih performed “That Body” and brings out Wale, as a special guest, and for the kicker they had performed their recent song together “On Chill.”
As the last act, The Isley Bros. had performed to celebrate their 60 anniversary. As apart of their tour stop, they had given us so many classics that we have heard from our parents and learned to appreciate it. Ronald Isley had given thanks to Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Earth Wind and Fire and Franky Beverly for their music. Many don’t know the classics, but Ronald had the energy and still sound the same as he first was singing his first record. The band had played “Joy & Pain” as a dedication that music will live on. It is such a classic record. Ronald could keep us until about four hours with the countless records he has way back in the ‘60s until late ‘90s. He even performed “Choosey Lover,” “For the Love of Money,” “Fight the Power” “Between The Sheets,” “Footsteps in the Dark,” and many more. As you can see, many artists have sampled the classics tracks, such as, Ice Cube, Aaliyah, Warren G and many more.
