At The 1896 in Brooklyn, New York, hip-hop fans got to see two of the best in the game, live and direct, when rappers Big Sean and Curren$y took the stage at Coors Light Axis. Axis is a new music platform that offers fans an opportunity to get an in-depth look at these two artists.
The line stretched around the block, as fans eagerly awaited the start of the concert; meanwhile Sean and Curren$y held court with media backstage, speaking on everything from family to the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.
Sean offered style tips and shared how his brother’s life affected his own path (“He used to be a dope boy”), while Curren$y shared his thoughts on the current unrest in the Midwest.
“Sometimes you have to destroy to rebuild,” he stated.
Fans got to see documentary-style videos featuring Big Sean and Curren$y discussing their respective journeys to stardom, and also gained access to custom mixtapes in collaboration with Pandora.
Curren$y took the stage first, ripping through his discography as the crowd rapped along to hits like “King Kong,” “Michael Knight,” and “Jet Life.” He surprised the crowd with special guests Jadakiss and Styles P of the LOX, who performed their classic single “We Gone Make It.”
Big Sean emerged later and came out like a rock star to wild cheers from the crowd. With hits like “Beware,” “Dance (A$$),” and “Gwap,” Sean reminded everybody that he’s one of hip-hop’s most energetic performers and Coors Light revealed once again that they understand how to capture hip-hop in it’s most honest and intimate setting.
