From the South to Syracuse, the artists fused electronic dance music with southern style rap for an unforgettable ending to University Union's final Bandersnatch concert of the year.
Southern rapper Isaiah Rashad headlined the event and captivated the audience with his ability to transition from performing smooth soulful songs to raw raps over southern beats. Rashad says he finds his inspiration in spontaneity and from movies such as Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing". Rashad signed with California based, independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment in 2013 and says that, "it's very inspiring...It's a family, we work and chill together".
Pairing the EDM artist and rapper provided plenty of audio ammunition Friday at the annual year-end concert.
After a morning of eating, drinking and celebrating the end of the school semester at MayFest, Syracuse University students headed to the Carrier Dome for a night with 2 Chainz and Zedd that surely did not disappoint.
DJ Brazzabelle opened the show with her signature house mixes that got the crowd off its feet and swaying back and forth. The energy could be felt throughout the Dome as audience members screamed in anticipation of 2 Chainz and Zedd.
Whether it was their first or last time at the annual event, SU students enjoyed the warm weather and festivities on Walnut Park.
Syracuse University’s Mayfest is seen as a “last hurrah” for students before finals and the end of the school year. Known as a weekend full of food, music and even drunkenness, the annual event something students look forward to every year.
