I Stepped into Warehouse Live sober, as all get out, but that didn’t last long. I ran into a friend of mine & he informed me that people were going back & forth between where Delo was performing & the room next door where Kickback Sundays was. I stayed put. I didn’t want to miss anything. Bobbi would kill me.
As I began to wonder if I should peak in next door, MC Kane announced the first opening act, H.I.S.D. (Houston Independent School District). Just kidding. It actually stands for Hueston Independent Spit District. This trio was, um, interesting to watch to say the least. We were all still waiting for Delo.
Next up was WhyJae & Nino Gotti. These young niggas definitely got the crowd wired up! Doughbeezy keeps ‘em coming with these new Headwreckas. I loved their “I Got 5 On It” freestyle. Be on the lookout for their new mixtape From Nowhere To Nevermind dropping soon.
Then the MC hyped us up by asking if we liked Big KRIT, right? Shit I thought he was about to bless the stage (well he was on stage, but he didn’t perform). Someone just as live did though. Big Sant stepped out on the stage live as fuck. I’d heard a couple of his tracks, but nothing ever really stood out to me. He gives a hell of a live performance though! His stand out tracks for me were his “Front, Back, Side To Side” freestyle & a track called “TCB” by Mookie Jones that he’s featured on. I became a fan of Big Sant that night. Big Sant for President!
Finally the main event; Mr. Delorean himself. Bun B introduced him & then it was showtime. He opens with his “All Eyez On Me” freestyle off of his latest project Mucho Caliente. Nice track to get his blood flowing & his energy up. Delo gave us his EVERYTHING on some of my HP3 favorites such as “Top Back,” “P’s & Q’s,” “I Get It,” “Bust Ah Move” with Jack Freeman & Big Sant, “Take Flight” with Bruce Bang, “All Outta My Hands,” & “Elevators” with Le$ & Slim Thug, “Sum’n Bout Money,” & “I Keep That” with Doughbeezy & Propain.
Some dancers for “Elevators” would’ve been dope, but I guess I gotta go to Dreams for that. Delo performed practically ALL of HP3 plus tracks from his other bodies of work. The crowd went crazy for “Soda Water” (off of Mucho Caliente) with Paul Wall & Big Sant.
Houston is very supportive of its talents & Delo gave us a helluva show! We wanted more from him, but he had to save an ounce of energy for all the after partying taking place. You couldn’t help but feel & smell all the love in the air. That was a fantastic show & if you weren’t there it sucks for you. Y’all go get Hood Politics 1, 1.2, 2, 3, Mucho Caliente & tell Delo to do another show!
