Jets Over Providence: A Tufftunezz Affair
The creativity of an artist really catches my attention when it comes to their work of art all the way to their stage presence. As a first timer at a Styles P and Curren$y Spitta show, it was great to match an act to the music I often listen to. The energy was booming as the entire venue yelled out, “D-Block” and “Jet Life” while living through this hip-hop experience. It is safe to say that the Jets were flying all over Providence, Rhode Island at the Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel, this past weekend.
My good ‘ol friends at Tufftunezz and Beyond All Reach put together one of the dopest shows, in my opinion, in the smallest state with the biggest dreams. Being in attendance of prior Tufftunezz events really gave me a vibe of what this one was going to be like. This exceeded my expectations to the max! As a music aficionado, it’s always great to attend shows like these to get a feel of what certain artist are like. But, what’s a Rhode Island show without any Rhode Island artist on the bill? Some had the ability to bless the stage with their presence and talent.
Starting off with Rhode Island artist Zumo Kollie, I had the pleasure or meeting him and seeing him perform live last summer at Firehouse 13. I instantly became a fan and continued to follow his work. To end his set off with a bang, he brought out Cam Bells, formerly known as Yung Cam, and Hil Holla, star of Hard Liquor EP: The Prohibition. The turn up is an understatement for the performance of “Ghost of Escobar Season” produced by RI’s very own producer Jeff Gore. The energy on that stage set it off for the following acts. We next had Cesar Luciano whose performance caught my eye due to the content of his work, which urged me to pick up his latest mixtape. The RI set was closed with a performance by M3, whose energy always gets the crowd excited for more. Concerts and shows are meant for a good time and DJ International Nasty definitely did his thing on the ones and twos.
Now for the headliners of this Jets Over Providence show. I was lucky and cool enough to watch the show from backstage and experience this moment with the Tufftunezz team and other dope people. It’s always great to go back in time with Hip Hop artist and Styles P did just that! You might know him as a member of Hip Hop group “The LOX”, “Ruff Ryders”, and the larger Hip Hop collective “D-Block”. Let me just say, don’t let his height underestimate his talent. He did an amazing job interacting with the crowd and the fans around him as he took a risk and actually performed from inside the crowd! Dope moment right there. This wasn’t the last of Styles P we saw that night.
Last but not least, the main attraction Curren$y Spitta stole the show. I am convinced that the venue, Lupos, will be full of smoke for an entire week. As he came out to bless the stage, the vibe was set to go on this Jet Life journey. It was great to finally watch one of my favorite artists perform noticing many things to make me love him even more. As I said before, creativity catches my eye, and Spitta did a great job at it. He came out wearing sweatpants and mid top air forces. If that isn’t laid back, I don’t know what is, making the experience even better. This brings the comments on his mannerism’s, which are over the top, but distinguishes and differentiates him from other artist. Almost at the end of the show, he took the initiative of signing autographs for the audience, which immediately brought a smile to my face. Who doesn’t enjoy fan interaction? As I soaked his set in and realized what I just witnessed, I remembered him performing songs off my favorite tape, “Covert Coup” and then hopped off the cloud I was on. Jet Life, Jet Life, Jet Life.
