Just in time to celebrate the birth of hip hop, Spotify kicked off their latest concert series, RapCaviar Live. What better place to kick off the highly anticipated concert series than in the city where trap music thrives, Atlanta. Hundreds of excited fans packed the Tabernacle to see the “Trap God” himself, Gucci Mane, Mike WiLL Made-It, and 6lack put on performances worthy of their positions on RapCaviar, Spotify’s most sought out hip hop playlist.

From beginning to end, RapCaviar Live was a showcase of Atlanta’s finest. Spotify brought the city out in a way no one expected! I walked in expecting a great show and left with a musical experience that will forever be embedded in my memory. Rapper Dae Dae took the stage and put on a head bobbing, dread shaking performance. Dae Dae’s energy on stage translated in his music. Word from word, the crowd recited the lyrics to “Wat U Mean” and “Spend It”. Next to follow was another one of Atlanta’s finest, K Camp. The Slum Lord gave the crowd a taste of slum life with the tracks “Cut Her Off” and “Slum Anthem.”

The killer songwriter and singer with the smoothest demeanor, 6lack hit the stage next. 6lack serenaded the crowd with a plethora of hits ranging from “Ex Calling and the certified Plantinum record, “PRBLMS.” The epitome of Sade’s smooth operator , 6lack left every woman in the audience in complete awe of his vocals and ability to connect with the crowd.

Mike WiLL Made-It

Mike WilLL turned his hour-long set into his personal studio session. The highly respected producer gave the crowd hit after hit and paid homage to one of Atlanta’s fallen angels, Shawty Lo. As expected, Mike WiLL didn’t leave the stage without giving fans one last hurrah. The energetic, hit makers from Mississippi, Rae Sremmurd, took the stage. The sibiling duo put on a headlining performance that brought the entire crowd to their feet.  The temperature in the Tabernacle went from 72 degrees to unbearably hot. The walls literally started to sweat. Rae Sremmurd’s performance was just the tip of the ice berg.

Gucci Mane

Caviar is never forgetting where you come from. After Gucci’s performance, it’s evident the Trap God never forgot the city that raised him. Gucci surprised the crowd by enlisting the help of : Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Playboi Carti, Lil Wop, Marlow, Rocko, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Lil Baby, Trouble Trouble, and Ears. It’s no wonder why Gucci is known as the Trap God.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who listened to Spotify’s RapCaviar playlist to relive an incredible night of performances. RapCaviar Atlanta was a musical experience only Spotify can orchestrate. There’s no telling what RapCaviar will bring in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto. For your chance to catch RapCaviar Live in a city near you visit Ticketmaster.

Brandy and Monica gaves us the “Verzuz Battle” we have been waiting for! The two legendary singers who rose to fame as adolescents in the nineties are now fully grown women with rivaling musical catalogues and a history of personal beefs.

However, tonight, Brandy and Monica settled their issues–off-screen of course–and reached over 1.2 million viewers with their highly anticipated Verzuz Battle, creating a moods and moments none of us will ever forget!

Back and forth the ladies delivered hit after hit and bop after bop; which had many Generation X-ers and Millennials reconnecting with their childhood. From Brandy we heard hits like “What About Us?,” “Brokenhearted (the Wanye duet),” “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” and more. Meanwhile Monica came just as heard with classics like “So Gone,” “4 U I Will,” “Everything To Me,” “First Night,” and more.

Naturally, the ladies dabbled in fun shade; reminiscing on the alleged slap down Monica gave Brandy in their youth, and their aforementioned off-screen heart to heart to clear the air. They apparently had not spoken to each other for eight years.  Nevertheless, their honesty and ability to forgive one another was endearing and an excellent example of how two people in a longstanding feud can heal one another.

 Honestly, their Verzuz Battle left us wanting a joint album from them. Brandy and Monica are magic together, and this is the closest match up in the history of the Instagram Live series. To us, there was no clear winner.

The positive commentary and feedback from thousands of celebrities and influencers; and over a million fans shows we definitely need R&B to make a comeback. The singers we have grown to know and love are good for more than just features and hooks. Brandy and Monica PLEASE go on tour! We will definitely buy tickets!
