A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez came out strong for their 2nd stop on the Level Up Tour at The Fillmore last night to the point where it almost got bad for the Toronto singer. Sustaining a leg injury during the performance the 23 year old didn’t let that stop his high level of energy. “My leg is damn near broken, but if it breaks it’ll break in Silver Spring, MD!”, he shouted to the crowd as they went wild; that moment right there summed up the night.
Before the duo took stage newcomer and trap rapperMadeintyo rocked the sold out crowd with bass heavy bangers including his standout track Uber Everywhere. The Atlanta rapper received a great alley-oop when Houston rapper Travis Scott remixed the track creating a major buzz. Since then the 23 year old’s stock has soared with others creating their own versions of the track. With tracks like this and Bool’n Madeintyo had the perfect gameplan to get the crowd hype before the main event.
A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez would perform their sets tag team style like the Hardy Boyz to the point they fused into one set and you didn’t know which artist or what song was going to be performed next. This unorthodox style turned the Fillmore into one big party. Tory Lanez kept the balance of serenading the ladies in the crowd with songs like Say It while showing his gritty side with tracks such as Diego. On the flip side Ferg kept the intensity all the way up with bangers Shabba, Work, and his latest single New Level that features Mr.Dirty Sprite himself Future. Once dubbed King Bonnaroo, the Harlem rapper exceeded expectations. Tory Lanez also showcased his acrobatic skills somehow finding a way to climb up a beam to the point where security tried to stop him as he reached the upper fence and fans were able to pull him up, how he was able to pull this off with a injured leg is still a mystery.
On the surface it seems like the pairing of Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg and Toronto singer Tory Lanez is random, but once you see them interact in person you began to realize that their chemistry is a great one. Ferg has always had a knack for sounding good with anyone he collaborates with so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they created the banger and tour theme song Line Up The Flex, which served as the closeout song for the night. The bond they’ve created thus far seemed pretty organic as they exchanged jokes back and forth in between songs while engaging the crowd.
This was one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while to be perfectly honest. I don’t exaggerate when I tell you I got my money’s worth. From the chemistry between Ferg and Lanez to the energy they put in their performance overall it was a great experience. With 23 stops left on the Level Up Tour they’re plenty of opportunities to check them out champs so be sure to buy a concert ticket when they come to a city near you.
