Blurred Culture Caught J Cole, Xavier Wulf and Nav On Day 1 Of Day N Vegas! Check Out Our Thoughts And Photos!
LOS ANGELES, CA- S
“…Day 1 kicked off with an exciting trap lineup and I couldn’t wait to see the artist perform. It’s mainly the more underrated and upcoming artists that were performing and honestly, the first day did not disappoint. All the artists were well known for having a start on Soundcloud and making a bigger name for themselves.
To the right of the entrance was the festival’s biggest stage, “Jackpot”, and the same suits it. Off to start the day was Canadian trap artist Nav, who is infamously known as a producer who is signed to XO and Republic Records. Nav brings a new sense of fashion and luxury when it comes to trap music, and everyone can interpret his message very well. Songs such as “Minute” and “Tap” were instant fan favorites. His repetitive melodies and beats are seared into everyone’s mind and that’s the reason why Nav stays relevant throughout the years. Nav seemed to be enjoying himself by the way he looked into the crowd and by the way he presented himself actually having fun with the crowd.
Following up from Nav, at the “Hunnid” stage in the middle of the festival, was no one else but the man, myth, and legend himself, Xavier Wulf. Now I have been a fan of Xavier Wulf for some time now (since 2013 to be exact) and this was my second time actually seeing him perform. See the things about Xavier Wulf is that he is not afraid to have a rage-pumping fun time. Xavier is very aware of what his fans want and he just simply gives the crowd what they want, and that is the right mindset for any true artist. Around the middle of the set, Xavier brought out his longtime friend Eddy Baker, and together, they really gave the crowd what they wanted. As Xavier took control of the stage, Eddy engaged with the audience close to the photo pit. The fans were loving it, and as a photographer being 2 feet away from all the actions, it was extremely difficult to keep my excitement. I recommend anyone who listens to trap music to give Xavier Wulf a listen and to see for themselves why he was one of the top performances at that festival.
If we want to talk about the word legendary, I think a picture of J.Cole would come up. See, J.Cole is definitely one of the biggest names in the hip-hop industry, and for reason. He manages to capture a wide audience with his clever use of words, aesthetic and funny enough, his jokes. People love J.Cole because he presents himself just like everyone else, and he is extremely humble. No wonder J.Cole was the headliner for Friday night. Personally, I loved his album “For Your Eyez Only”, but I digress. J.Cole’s entrance was very impressive, starting off with a crowd-pleasing video of him wanting to run for President while passing out signs that read “Falloff 2020”. Again, his humor is loved by his fans. The opening song, “Middle Child”, started the long chilly night, but it wasn’t so chilly anymore. Fans started to go absolutely bonkers and going word for word with all his songs. Luckily, for all his fans, he brought out the entire Dreamville Team, only to perform even more songs with them. The East Coast-based record label was obviously getting a ton of love in the West coast. The hour-long set felt short to everyone as everyone was having such an extraordinary time. It was so fun to finally see J.Cole and his whole team take over the stage for the night….”
