WGCI’s Big Jam 2016 went off without a hitch at the United Center. After the drama that Trey Songz was involved with in Detroit, he was able to make it to Chicago and perform for his fans. This Big Jam was pretty diverse as big jams go. The early part of the show was filled with Chicago acts who have gone national. G Herbo, LiL Bibby and Dreezy all represented their city properly and Chicago gave it up for their people. The controversial 18-year-old Lil Yachty, who says Biggie is overrated, gave a decent set. He asked that the lights be turned down and performed his hit song “One Night” to the flicker of cell phone lights.

Desiigner did as expected and took the level of energy up a bit as he hopped frantically across the stage. The anticipation for Trey Songz was high once he sauntered onto the stage showered by the screams of his adoring fans; he was able to give them what they came for. He stranded the audience and few times and got the attention he expected as his shirt came off.

I have to say the highlight of the evening was watching Chris Brown bring a level of professionalism that is not seen often in these type of shows. He really can’t be touched as a performer and you could tell he was holding back. I’m not sure who created the set list but having Young Thug close after Chris Brown was not a good idea.

Young Thug came out unceremoniously after making the crowd wait about 10 minutes after his intro. You know Thug has his core fans, so in their eyes he can do no wrong. Overall, his set was lazy and uninspired. It has to be hard to follow Chris Brown. Another Big Jam is in the books.

Another Big Jam is in the books.

We asked concert goer Jazmine Jackson what she thought of the show and who was her favorite. “This was my first concert and I had a lot more fun than I thought I would. I thoroughly enjoyed all of it, but mostly because my sister Jo and her friend had an amazing time. Personally, my favorite part was Trey Songz’s guitarist. I was in love with his solos. I also enjoyed Chris Brown and Young Thug’s segments. The lil ratchet girl in me had a ball,” she said.
