I’m sure anyone who reads my blog has noticed, I’m a huge Kanye West fan. As mentioned in my Yeezy Season 3 post, I’ve been a fan since I saw Through The Wire when I was just 12 years old, so not going to Saint Pablo would’ve given me serious FOMO and I would’ve 100000% regretted it. It took me a month to decide but I ended up justifying the ridiculous amount of money a GA ticket costed using my 25th birthday as an excuse – you can’t not buy yourself a birthday gift.
As expected, Kanye delivered. Kanye puts his all into everything he does and whether you like him or not, you can’t deny his talent, drive and attention to detail. He doesn’t ever let down his fans so I honestly didn’t expect this show to be anything less than perfect. I’m sure the entire world already knows, Kanye performed on a floating stage suspended above all of his fans. There was no extravagant set, there were no breaks, it was literally Kanye, his music and all of us. There were no distractions and everyone was there for the same reason, the music.
Kanye performed his top hits as well as many songs from TLOP. He did all of this without a break. He didn’t have any outfit changes and he didn’t move from the floating stage. There was no rant. No mention of the Taylor beef. No mention on how Nike rejected him and now he’s created a money machine with Adidas. It was solely, Kanye and his music and it was amazing. If he does a round 2 in NYC, I am absolutely going (I also convinced more of my friends to go since my snapchat was a party on it’s own to watch.)

Prior to the show, I needed to find an amazing outfit to wear. I ended up wearing my favorite high-waisted BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters (that I suggest everyone to buy,) a black choker top from LF (which needs an ecommerce,) a black western inspired belt also from UO, and my favorite Jeffery Campbell ankle booties. I tried not to do the all-black-everything look but for Kanye, it needed to be done.
Overall, Saint Pablo is definitely one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. The only other one that it competes with is Yeezus (which is so different you can’t really compare them.)
I definitely ended Summer 16 with a bang, going to some amazing concerts and spending time with my favorite people. I’m also very excited to see what 25 has in store for me, I’m sure it’ll be amazing! Next up: Drake in October – I’ll try not to wear all black to this one.
