One of the hottest rap artists in the nation, Gucci, rapped to a packed house as the Gucci October Fest concert took place Oct 1 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center Downtown. The concert was presented by The Levels Agency and IGRINDGLOBAL.
“We wanted to do something big to bring the city out. And what better way to do that, than to bring one of the hottest rappers. Hundreds came out to have fun and hear good music,” Michael Carroll of IGRINDGLOBAL said.
The event took place from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. as several other acts hit the stage for live performances before the main attraction. Performers such as; Latia, Hardo, Jimmy, Wopo, and Drama; and other familiar Pittsburgh artists were present at the event, Owey, Asco, and Loody Boy of Wiz Khalifa’s TGOD.
Malik Williams of IGRINDGLOBAL said, “We just want to change the city for the better and make sure that when you think Pittsburgh, you think lit. I can’t even describe how I feel after the event, just thank you father.”
Nearly 3,000 people attended the concert. The concert was hosted by Rydah.
Elijah Hill of Levels Agency said, “The concert was a night to remember, and one I will never forget. It was a movie. I still remember the days my team and I dreamed about doing this. Look at us now. I’m so grateful.”
Gucci hit the stage at 8 p.m., and performed an hour of his hit songs. Gucci performed the old and the new hit releases such as, “Trap House” and “Everybody Looking.”
Concert attendee Kiara Pope said, “I’ve been listening to Gucci since I was 14, and never heard him live in concert. So in other words, I had to come and I had a great time.”
“The dynamic of Pittsburgh night life is changing. Celebrities have been showing the city all kinds of love this past year. I had a good time at the concert and ready for more events like this in the future,” Camille Glass concert attendee said.
