GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Pharoahe Monch and Jean Grae @ The Metro Sydney 7.01.2012


I'm always super excited to see Pharoahe Monch live and I'm also a fan of Jean Grae. While I'm not a big Wu-Tang guy it was a bonus to see GZA as well. This was the third time I've seen Jean Grae and probably the best. She came out with a fire and a bit of a mouth on her but that's Jean and it was pretty cool. Pharoahe was Pharoahe. Always gives it his all and thrives in front of an intense crowd. He absolutely rocked the sell out Metro crowd. The dude that sings the chorus to Desire wasn't there so some chick took over and it wasn't terrible but it just wasn't Desire. Oh well. How many concerts I've been to, for the first time ever, I saw a spectator rush the stage and DIDN'T have love for the act. During Pharoahe's "Fuck You" he got up on stage with his middle fingers in the air screaming "Fuck You" to Pharoahe, but not like a fan getting into the song but a scum bag. Pharoahe laughed it off but DJ BoogieBlind was having none of it. He came out from behind the 1's and 2's ready to deck that mutha f**ker but cooler heads prevailed... on with the show.

I didn't know what to expect from GZA because Wu-Tang are a little funny some times... So I wasn't fully disappointed when he came out and pretty much stood in one spot all night spitting Liquid Swords. At one point he did run into the crowd and do a song there which was pretty nuts though.
