Twiztid 420 Weekend – Providence, RI
Every opener brought their own magic to the stage, but the first to really throw me off in a good way was Lex the Hex Master. I’d heard nothing but good things about his performances, but either way, I was excited to finally witness the newcomer in person. His stage presence was extremely energetic, keeping the crowd’s eyes on him the entire time. He performed the majority of the tracks from his debut EP The Black Season, which made me enjoy the set that much more. Needless to say, I was impressed and can’t wait to see what’s in store for Lex’s future with MNE.
After Lex was a set from The R.O.C., which I was very excited for. It had been a little over a year since I had seen him live, so when he finally hit the stage, I was ready for a killer show. As expected, his set was as good as the last time, if not better! I’ve always appreciated R.O.C. as an artist, solo or as part of House Of Krazees. In my honest opinion, he is far from being finished blowing juggalos’ minds. His performance was slightly theatrical, which I always appreciate when it comes to concerts.
Next up, Boondox hit the stage. From the few times that I’ve seen him live, the Scarecrow no doubt left a lasting impression. This show was certainly no different. His energy was powerful, to say the least, and I really love how the crowd interacted with him and his music. In fact, Boondox’ set was definitely a juggalo favorite.
Following was the Deadman himself. I’ve had love for Blaze Ya Dead Homie for as long as I can remember, so naturally, I’m always pumped to see him perform. Opening up with the introduction from The Casket Factory was perfect, in my mind. When he finally came out, I could already tell that Blaze was ready to give his all. This was no surprise at all given all his shows since day one have been full of energy. From his constant smiles while up on stage, I could instantly tell that he’s a performer who absolutely loves what he does. Adding to my appreciation, The R.O.C. and Lex the Hex Master joined the set to help out with “They Call That Gangsta”. With that in mind, it goes without saying that Blaze was one of my top favorite performances of the night.
Finally, it was Twiztid’s turn. I go into these shows already knowing that the Demented Duo will slaughter the stage, as does any juggalo that has love for them. Always, I was captivated by their energy and general love for their craft. You can tell that they will never take their career for granted, especially knowing that they’re lucky enough to call it their career. Performing juggalo favorites such as “Bad Side”, “Circles”, and of course “So High”, the building was just radiating with pure family love. Unfortunately their set was cut short due to unforeseen circumstances, but all-in-all, Twiztid left the crowd wanting more. Although, could we expect any less from the guys? Of course not!
So, there you have it! Although the show ended just days ago, I am still dusting my wig off, as I’m sure many who were in attendance are, as well.
