The grown and sexy was in the building at Medusa this past Thursday for Lyfe Jennings show. There were definitely a lot of lovers there too, I’m assuming because it was two days before Valentine’s Day. I called myself wanting to get inside early so I could get a seat because I really wasn’t in a turn up type of mood, but I unfortunately got hung up in the parking lot across from the club. Usually there is a parking attendant there and you just hand your money to them and they give you a ticket. Well I guess the city or whoever owns that parking lot decided they didn’t wanna pay people to stand out there anymore and replaced them with an electronic parking meter. It was cold as hell, the birds above me freaked me out a little (I was afraid I’d get pooped on), and people were taking forever in this long ass line. I finally made it inside around 9:15 and all the seats where taken. I heard DJ Phil on the one’s and two’s so I decided to make my way up to the DJ Booth to say hi. After speaking I headed back downstairs and copped me a seat and crowd watched. Once again nobody wanted to get out on the dance floor so they all just stood around it and danced where they were standing. It literally was only two couples who didn’t give a damn, they went ahead and stepped to the music on the dance floor. After some time DJ Phil said something like “alright y’all ready for Lyfe Jennings to hit the stage” and literally everybody started rushing to the stage. I looked at the time and I knew it was too early but I followed suit because I wanted a good spot.
KJ Midday from 105.7 came out to introduce Lyfe and promote the stations cash giveaway and after she stepped off the stage a guy in the audience decided he was gonna start singing one of Lyfe’s songs super loud. The crowd joined in and next thing you know seemed like all of Medusa was singing along. Lyfe jumped on the mic and said “sound like y’all done started without me” and then made his way on the stage around 10:30. He started out with his song “My Life” and sang about 8 songs along with a few snippets. Of course he closed the show with his hit “Must Be Nice”. Lyfe is known for his realness and his lyrics being relate-able and he kept it real and let us know he did not have a specific format/order to how he was gonna perform.Throughout the show he struggled with the mic and we kept getting that high pitched feedback through the speakers. At first he was too low and he kept asking them to turn him up, seemed like he asked about 5 times. Then it seemed too loud at one point. Nevertheless he sounded great and so did his background singers. During the song “S.E.X.” he took a backseat and let his background singer Ms. Netta have the spotlight for a moment and she did her thing.
All in all it was a good show even with the technical difficulties. I wish he would’ve sang all of “Hypothetically” but it’s all good. The only other thing I didn’t like was I was standing next to a girl who decided she was gonna sing loud in my ear. Girl I came to hear Lyfe not you. Honestly because of the technical difficulties he asked the crowd to sing along and seemed like the whole crowd did. Tickets were about $30 and it was pretty packed but not so packed that it was uncomfortable. The show ended around 11:30.

Sidenote: Sooo after the show they said Lyfe would be taking pics with fans in the VIP section so I moseyed on over there and made sure I was RIGHT on the rope. I figured a pic with him would be good for the blog. When I tell y’all those girls pushed and shoved and acted like wild animals, I just couldn’t take it anymore. Especially since there seemed to be a certain “type” he was choosing to take pics with once he got there. No shade but you would have thought it was Trey Songz or Chris Brown the way those women were actin. I was like bump this I’m goin home, it ain’t that deep to me.
