So I just finished by last Homecoming here as a student.
But my at least my last homecoming had a great artist LUDACRIS!!!
Now you guys have just met me but my friends know that I’m a Ludacris fan from way back. I’ve been a fan since his first album Incognegro days. So I have basically been preparing for this concert my entire life.
So if you’re like me coming to college you have no idea what a actual homecoming week is like ( I went a small arts school… we didn’t have a football team, we just had a dance for homecoming). But Temple homecoming is a huge event. It is an entire week of events, from 90’s dance parties, to a event with the cast of girl code guy code, to our homecoming pageant. The theme was Throwback Temple, so all of the events had a cool old school theme to it. This year was really special for me because not only was it my last one, but my best friend was running for homecoming queen so I got to be her campaign manager!
Look at some of our awesome events!
There was also a GIGANTIC CAKE!! It was a really good gigantic cake too! Our student center got really crowed because all of the Temple students trying to get a slice… I got two hehe.
This is my friend Lorian and her running mate for Homecoming King and Queen Isiah!
We also got to decorate the Owl Ambassador office. My favorite is Bill Cosby wearing my very own Cosby sweater
It was honestly my favorite homecoming I was able to go to all of the events on campus. My favorite was probably a toss up between the Homecoming pagent and the Ludacris concert. Though the actual homecoming game was a rainy but that did not stop the Temple Super fans from showing up. By the way we won!! But I also got to see my best friend crowned Homecoming Queen!!
But on to the main event, LUDA!!! When I say that yelled and jumped up and down to every song. I danced to every single solitary song he played. His opening act was PARTYNEXTDOOR, who before this concert I had no idea who he was. Fun fact PARTYNEXTDOOR is not a band like I thought, it’s just one guy. I also had no idea he was signed to Drake’s label. However some of my friends are huge fans of PARTYNEXTDOOR so while they were jumping up and down and singing his songs, I was just swaying to the beat feeling out the loop. But he’s a pretty good artist. His music is kind of a mixture of The Weeknd and Drake. So if you’re a fan of Drake and The Weeknd you might like PARTYNEXTDOOR.
I thought that going to the Jhene Aiko concert was good but this was on another level. I left the concert wishing Ludacris and I were friends (think of how much fun that would be!). Luda’s live band was great the sax player had a killer solo on “Pimpin all over the world”. By the time the concert ended I had NO voice, but thats the price I had to pay for being able to make my middle school dreams come true! He played all of the hits from his albums and some of his features as well. If your not familiar with Ludacris go on spotify and check him out!
Since I couldn’t get a good video due to all my screaming heres a picture up close and personal with Ludacris!
