We Went To Peter Rosenberg's 'PeterPalooza IV' And Fell Back In Love With The A$AP Mob

A$AP brought it back to New York City. 

Harlem’s very own A$AP Rocky and A$AP Mob brought out a myriad of New York City’s rap fans to Manhattan's Best Buy Theater on Thursday night (July 23). There were plenty of Millennials of all races at Peter Rosenberg’s fourth annual PeterPalooza concert. The sold out venue was on tilt for acts like the A$AP Mob, Remy Banks, Vic Mensa, Bodega Bamz and more.

With host Larry Legend, draped in a black Tuxedo, providing laughs, he set the party off by introducing the opening acts. But it was Bodega Bamz -- who rocked a Department of Corrections jumpsuit -- that started the lituatation. He had fans rapping every word to “Billy Bats” and “Woopy Woop Blahzay Blah,“ both off Bamz’ recently released album Sidewalk Exec. Also, the energetic crowd turned up for Vic Mensa’s “Feel That” and his infectious verse from his Kanye West-assisted "U Mad."

However, the five boroughs and New Jersey had the most fans out to see A$AP Rocky and The Mob, and they let it be known as concertgoers grew impatient by chanting “Rocky, Rocky, Rocky.” After listening to birthday boy Rosenberg profess his love for hip-hop, the clock struck 10 PM, and the beat dropped to “Hella Hoes” with Twelvvy and Nast taking the stage -- as a mosh pit erupted in the front row. All the members of the Mob made it, and rolled through fan favorites like Ant’s “Set That Bitch Off and Nast's “Trillmatic.”

Dressed in all black, with a delightful smile, Rocky controlled the crowd with his every move. It seemed as if New York City confirmed that Flacko's music is showing the world that you can be yourself and step outside of the boundaries while still being successful.

Visiting his recently released At.Long.Last.A$AP album, that self-proclaimed Pretty Muthaf*cka slayed performances of "M’s," “LSD” and “Lord Pretty Flacko Jody 2,” which caused straight pandemonium. Being that I was sober, I could only imagine what the euphoria and energy would of felt like if I got trippy.

A$AP Ferg also banged out his solo gems, “Shaba,” and “Werk,” and even go a little emo by stating that he didn't want the night to end: "Y’all don’t understand. I haven’t performed with my brothers in years,” he yelled through the mic.

Rocky closed out the night with cuts “Wild For The Night,” and “Peso.” But it seemed like none of the Mob members wanted the event to come to a close. They even stayed on stage to dance to a couple of Young Thug tracks. It was nothing but crew love.

Florida Gunman Convicted Of Manslaughter In Fatal Parking Lot Shooting

A Florida jury convicted a white gunman of killing an unarmed black father during an argument over a parking space. Jurors deliberated for more than six hours before finding Michael Drejka guilty of manslaughter in the July 2018 shooting death of Markeis McGlockton.

McGlockton, 28, was gunned down in front of his 5-year-old son in the parking lot of a Circle K gas station. The father of three was coming to his girlfriend’s defense after she was confronted by Drejka for parking in a handicap space while McGlockton ran into the store. Drejka, who alleged self-defense, claimed that he opened fire after McGlockton took “one step” towards him and shoved him. Drejka attempted to use Florida’s Stand Your Ground law to justify the fatal shooting, and saw no fault in his actions.

“I followed the law the way I thought the law was supposed to be followed. I cleared every hurdle that the law had to put in front of me,” he told a local news station last year.

Prosecutors argued that Drejka provoked the confrontation and video surveillance confirmed that McGlockton was backing away from Drejka. The state’s self-defense argument doesn’t apply if the shooter caused the altercation.

Drejka, who faces up to 30 years in prison, had no reaction to the verdict, CBS News reports. He remains held without bond and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 10.
