Review: The "X" hitmaker headlined Phi Beta Sigma's State of Emergency concert alongside Nebu Kiniza.

For the price of $10, I saw 21 Savage. Yet, short and simple is how to describe 21 Savage’s performance in Goldstein Auditorium for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s State of Emergency concert. 21 Savage performed music from his recent collection, and although his music has earned him a huge fan base, his performance falls short. The rising artist seemed like he was there to play a few songs and get off the stage as he barely interacted with his audience, failing to produce the hype the fraternity’s previous concerts brought.

On Aug. 9, 2014, police and authorities abandoned Brown for four and a half fours, Hill said neighbors told him. It was 95 degrees outside, Hill added, and children attempted to protect Brown’s body with a sheet, but it was too short to cover both his feet and head.
