He refers to himself as the "Boss of all Bosses." His more formal name is Slim Thug. He's a Houston-native and and a hip-hop favorite. And I went to his concert. This was my first rap concert, and it was an experience if nothing else. Among the Memorial scene, Slim and his fellow associates (they refer to their friends as associates) are pretty popular. There's something thrilling about hearing familiar street names and highway names in a song. For instance, in "Welcome 2 Houston" Slim and others like Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, and Trae rap about "6-10, I-10, 59, 45, and the Belt. This Clutch City where we play what we dealt. Welcome to my H-Town. Hit me on the 8-3-2, it's Paul Wall it do." I'll admit it--this is far from my normal activities of fancy ball gown dresses or cheering at a football game, but everybody needs a little change of pace every once in awhile. And a little adventure. This was certainly both.
My brother Andy definitely went through his "I'm a rapper" phase in his MHS days (what Memorial guy doesn't?), so I asked him what the guys we were going with should wear. He said "normal clothes", and even though I relayed this information to Tyler and Marshall, they clearly didn't hear me correctly....
So, to fit in with our company Jules and I put on some hats.
Tyler had some eye issues that night. That's just me expressing my concern.
The Boss in action
Fine dining indeed. The only reason we did this was because we heard a rumor that you could buy 100 chicken nuggets (ew) for $9.99 and we wanted to see if it was true. The verdict? It's not.
This group of people would probably be voted as the most unlikely candidates to be at this concert, but there we were, and we loved every minute of it. It was arguably one of the best nights of senior year (still a close call with the salsa extravaganza though!)
That's a rap for tonight :)
