First Time In Atlanta: Jeezy’s Welcome Home Party At Tabernacle

March 13, 2018

Saturday, March 10

Greetings from Atlanta! My first time here and I’m genuinely soaking it all in. My homegirls wanted to catch Jeezy‘s show in his hometown, so you already know it’s lit. His LA show left me so high on life. He brought out Diddy, Nipsey Hussle, and O.T. Genasis. Legendary. This is his Cold Summer Tour. I was actually super interested to see how ATL would compare to the LA crowd, and I’d have to say they kept up. I literally felt like I was in Atlanta at both the LA shows.

Huge thanks to Peter and Genesis for this. I was super excited to experience a concert in Atlanta. Was surprised to find the set times on time. We get in and I only had one song left in the pit, but it was a good one. “And Then What” is such a classic. He did “Church In The Streets” and “Holy Ghost” next, before reminding everyone the Snowman was here at the Tabernacle.

Every time I see Jeezy, I’m reminded how many hits he got lmao. Literally. “J.E.E.Z.Y.” is also a personal favorite. He did “U Know What It Is” and “Corporate Thuggin'” by U.S.D.A which had the entire venue lit. “Get Allot” was next before he brought Tee Grizzley back out for “Cold Summer.” “They Know” by Shawty Lo always hits the spot. The tribute is always sentimental. “Who Dat” had the machine pushing out fake snow in the form of soap bubbles. “All There” featuring Bankroll Fresh is my personal fav. Such a slap. This lead right into the dopest tribute to Bankroll Fresh, as the DJ dropped “Hot Boy.” 

He performed “My N**ga” remix with YG next and “R.I.P.” — 2 songs that ALWAYS get me hyped. This definitely hit the spot. He followed it up with “Way Too Gone” and the disclaimer that A-town always goes harder than anyone else. Of course, he had to lay us with some “Thug Motivation 101.” Next was “Put On,” “I Luv It,” and “Soul Survivor” featuring Akon. Classics.

We ended up going out to a house party afterward then Waffle House until 5am. Think we were out until 6am at least. Here for it lmao.

The next day, I convinced everyone to go to the Hawks game lmao. It took us FOREVER to get here. People have been saying it’s as bad as LA traffic. I feel like Atlanta is huge lmao. Ended up catching the last quarter of the Hawks vs. Bulls game, two teams that equally suck lmao. Got to visit Philipps Arena though, so that was cool. I love the NBA, so any opportunity to go to a game in a different city is one taken.

Ended up walking and found the CNN Building next door! Shout out to being a tourist. Will always be a tourist. Love seeing new cities and places I’ve never been.

Ended up at happy hour at McCormick & Schmick’s before we head to Boogalou. It was a club/bar/lounge + Sunday litness lmao. Yung Joc ended up here, along with Young Scooter. I was like, they still out here at the clubs? Lmao. The seats at the bar had swings though. Super chic. LA def needs a bar like this.

We mobbed to Vortex afterward, which apparently has the best burgers in town. Then we wanted hookah so we hit up Hookah HideOut. That shit was ratchet in the best way possible.

New day! Had to pull up on my girl Lacy at Street Execs. This studio made me fall in love with ATL. Fr fr fr. Brb, moving here lmao.

The OG whip from 2 Chainz pink Trap House. Literally here for it.

Ended up back on my computer and work sucked me in. But was so so excited to see my Dave East interview published on Nylon. If y’ll knew the backstory into this article…. man. Ask me and I’ll tell you. Shit was brazy. Don’t ever quit. EVER. Failures are blessings in disguises. Honestly.

Ended up back at Street Execs and Nessly’s crib. Low key, I was so fucking happy to end my trip here. They showed me the actual city of ATL.

Shout out to Brndn for best tour ever through the city. I appreciate night drives so fucking much man. So much. Also found out they call weed boof here lmao. Interesting. I don’t like it.
