The energy at this year’s #PowerhouseLA was like no other. The New@2 stage kicked the day off and it was all highs until the end of Kanye West’s hour-long performance. Not only that, but ‘Ye spit new bars over “Heartless!”
#PowerhouseLA is one show you want to arrive early to because we start the show off with a free show for fans – New@2! Dizzy Wright, Hopsin, and Jarren Benton kicked the show off with a high energy, funk volume set. Followed him was Luke Christopher, Pia Mia, Yazz of Fox’s “Empire,” and Rayven Justice. The crowd lost all control when Chedda Da Connect came on stage and hit them with the “Flicka Da Wrist.” Closing the show was Jay 305, Dej Loaf, and Joey Bada$$ – these guys shut the entire New@2 stage down!
Now let’s talk about the Varsity squad that took over the Power House 2015 stage…
Casey Veggies repped for Los Angeles and warmed the crowd off with “Backflip,” following him was Logic who kept the energy going. G-Eazy had all the ladies screaming as soon as he took his first step on the Power House stage. “I Mean It” had every one, including some of the Power 106 executives, singing lyric-for-lyric.
Tinashe was one of our personal favorites. “All Hands On Deck” has been on repeat since it’s release and getting even more play since the video came out. Watching her perform that live on stage was an epic moment.
Nipsey Hussle was another who repped Los Angeles heavy! ‘All Money In’ was in full attendance. Tech N9ne was a legend who took the stage. We expected for him to lose it all the way and that’s exactly what he did. B.o.B. was up next and brought out Sevyn for his performance. B.o.B. has a few of our favorite tracks, one of them being “Nothin’ On You.” Together, Tech and B.o.B. jumped in the crowd and literally showed love to fans.
The final four, the fantastic four, the last four performances of the night was everything.
First off, what track isn’t Ty Dolla $ign on right now. The man is out here grinding working with Tinashe and Charli XCX “Drop That Kitty” to releasing new track with friends YG, DJ Mustard and Tee Cee “Only Right.”
Kid Ink followed Ty and of course the ladies were bringing the thirst. He actually brought out Dej Loaf for “Be Real” as well as classics like “Time of Your Life.” You know Dej wasn’t going to leave without performing “Try Me.”
Ludacris was another personal favorite. It didn’t matter how old you were, Luda was going to bring it. Performing new tracks, “Good Lovin'” as well as classics like “Move B*tch.” Let us not forget the man had an entire hour set and not one second did he let go to waste.
And now the grand finale! The closer of the night – Kanye West! Kanye was another with an hour set so off the back we knew we were going to get throwback ‘Ye and Yeezus. The ‘Ye dance was a popular move for his set and he even gave fans a new freestyle over “Heartless.” No
rants, were in effect tonight, his throat was a bit soar but that didn’t stop ‘Ye from shutting the Honda Center all the way down!
