Sy Ari Da Kid’s Brings His “After The Heartbreak” To Los Angeles

Tuesday, February 27th


Happy Tuesday. Tonight was Sy Ari Da Kid’After The Heartbreak listening in Los Angeles. That’s my guy. Ever since the day we met, it’s been family. He’s signed to Birdman’s Cash Money Records, but I discovered him when I heard his record with Bryson Tiller called “Priorities.” That’s actually from his B4 The Heartbreak project. Fire.

Tonight was another special evening curated by my baby girl Laura. She’s also the one who put together Dame Dash’s private dinner and screening for his Honor Up movie. This is just another doing of the man above. Dope people always find each other in the industry. Facts. The event took place at A List Music & Co., located in the cuts of downtown, by the Fashion District. It was an automatic vibe the second I walked in. The dim lighting, roses, and entire feel of the space. I’m really into venues if you can’t tell.

after the heartbreak ❤️

I was stoked to reunite and hope to come to his hood next month! Atlanta is on my hit-list. I’ve been couped up in Cali. Got to interview him again and always can appreciate everything he has to say. He’s got a heart of gold and it shows through more than his music. The second I walk in, I see a dope table full of his merch: the cutest baseball caps and tees. And then I look to my left, and there’s a wall of white roses laced with polaroids all throughout. It was so artsy and creative — and it went with the entire theme of the evening. After The Heartbreak in full-effect.

The best part had to have been your choice of poisonous drink- from love to lush to (don’t remember the rest lmao). It was set up in multi-colored self-serve coolers so you could fill up your cup at your discretion. The cups also had Sy Ari Da Kid’s After The Heartbreak printed on it. Excellent marketing and promo. They reminded me of the same styrofoam cups from Jeezy’s Trap Or Die 3 listening party. Atlanta vibes all day. As if that’s not enough, they had the beautiful Huneycut deejaying and the beautiful Chrissy Joyce on the violin. At one point in the evening, I was watching her play that instrument into the microphone and just thinking, “Damn, she’s so fire.”

As the night went on, more and more people arrived and soon, it became a full-on party. The crazy part was I was supposed to cut out to Brent Faiyaz at 9pm, but that ended up falling through. Whoever got to sneak into that Moroccan Lounge tonight are some lucky motherfuckers lmao. I did see Sonder last time they were here at Teragram Ballroom, but this show was just him.

I just noticed the after party was at the same exact venue. Although I’ll always FOMO over shows from my favorite artists, I’m actually so glad I stayed. I got to see so many people I love and adore and it was just overall a great evening with great company.

Don’t forget to bump Sy Ari’s new project on your way to or from work <3.
