CONCERT REVIEW: YG and Peter Jackson at Oshawa Music Hall

Last night, rapper YG took to the stage at the Oshawa Music Hall to kick off the second stop on his My Krazy Life Canadian tour. There were several opening acts to follow YG’s performances. The opening acts were Parma Media, Blacka Da Don, and Hypa. All performed well despite the technical difficulties throughout the night. The energy and atmosphere was great as the crowd chanted YG’s name, as his performance got closer with each passing act.

Before the main performance, Canadian rapper Peter Jackson took to the stage with his veracity and passion to get the fans rallied up. Despite the delayed audio tracks and technical difficulties (which is safe to assume would be every musician’s nightmare), Peter Jackson held strong and pushed through to give a performance the fans deserved. He performed “Hundred Miles,” “I Don’t Give a Fuck,” and his latest release, “So Simple.” For those unfamiliar with his work, Peter Jackson has been a long-standing Canadian musician who has worked with the likes of  Snoop Dogg, Jadakiss, Waka Flocka Flame, Machine Gun Kelly, Styles P, and many more. He recently announced that he is working on new album called, “Since I was 16” which is expected to be releasing sometime in the near future.

Finally, Compton’s very own YG hit the stage to bring a little West Coast love to his Toronto fans. He walked out as the crowd’s anticipation was at its peak and performed his DJ Mustard-produced hit, “Left, Right“, which had the ladies in the crowd moving. Moving from that opening track, he performed select cuts from his debut album, My Krazy Life, such as “Bickin Back Bein Bool” and the crowd favorite single, “Who Do You Love” featuring Drake. Throughout his entire set, YG handled himself very well by giving nods and handshakes to his fans, and even entertained his fans with his crowd-favourite dance as they chanted, “Do your dance YG, do your dance.”

Overall, YG held his own and gave the show which the fans anticipated since the start of the night. His West Coast-inspired music had the crowd rocking with him from start to finish. For those who missed his performance, don’t fret. Rumours suggest that he might be a surprise guest for the coming 2014 OVO Festival occurring at the Canadian Molson Amphitheater this coming weekend. Just remember when you hear “Who Do You Love” playing during Drake’s set – you know that  Jonathan told you so.
