Last night at Naga Nightclub in Cambridge, MA, Kirko Bangz had the club going up on a Sunday for Andrew Corapi‘s ultimate 21st birthday party. J The DJ served as the night’s house DJ. He was responsible for spinning for the openers, connecting the dots between sets, and keeping the crowd content with today’s biggest hits which had the dancefloor blazing before DJ XO took the stage in preparation of Kirko‘s appearance. An abundance of up-n-coming emcees were in the spotlight prior to the headlining performance by the Houston native, consistently building my anticipation to see Kirko perform his timeless classics. Upon the final preface’s performance, Naga’s sound system was amplified multiple notches to ensure the turn up for Kirko Bangz would be at 100%. Whilst standing on the side of the club’s small stage, I was curious to know how Kirko would get onto the juncture. My question was quickly answered as Kirk‘s clique entered the club with the star of the night lurking in the middle of the group to block visibility to the eager crowd. Kirko seated himself in the rear corner of the stage and began guzzling a bottle of his favorite alcohol beverage, Hennessy, before his scheduled midnight performance. DJ XO lead the crowd’s rowdiness with bass-infused party anthems before Kirko took center stage to kick off the night. Kirko started off the night with bangers he calls his own before swiftly moving onto his renowned records which had the audience going crazy. Songs including “Drank In My Cup,” “What Yo Name Iz” among a plethora of others had fans singing along to the records that assisted in building Kirko‘s prominent relevancy. In the midst of his performance, Kirko hopped into the crowd to perform his contribution to Meek Mill‘s record “Young & Gettin’ It.” Everyone was hopping around and chanting the lyrics, and it was quite the sight. To conclude his short yet sweet set after capping off merely two bottles of Hennessy within twenty minutes, Bangz performed his latest single “Rich” which is belted with a catchy hook from frequent collaborator August Alsina. Kirko then proceeded to pay tribute to the late Chinx, who had unfortunately past the morning of the show. Exhibiting his humbleness, Kirko stuck around for a bit and allowed fans to nab a photo with him as J The DJ hopped on the boards again to keep the tunes in rotation.
Overall the showcase was a good time. We’d like to give a special shout out to Andrew Corapi of District 1 Studios for throwing this bash. Check out the photos Triller Than Most‘s Nick Pedini captured below.
