I’m 5’1 and I often go to hip-hop shows alone. It can be so annoying how pushy and aggressive guys are (tonight one guy tried to put his hands around my waist and then grabbed my butt when he walked by me later, even though I had already asked him twice not to touch me).
It doesn’t stop me from going to enjoy the music I love live, and I can stand up for myself…but, the following video shows that AB-SOUL and his “crew” ain’t down with pushing the ladies around:
FYI: “smashing” can refer to having sex (i.e. “I wanna smash” means a guy/girl wants to have sex). People can also be smashed around and that double meaning is what they’re talking about:
“It ain’t even that type of party. Smash the girls, but you don’t smash the girls. What the f%$# is going on?”
Thanks to AB-SOUL and his compatriots for setting the tone. It didn’t stop guys from being pushy (alcohol probably makes that impossible). Still, this is the first time I’ve been at a show where the male artists ask the men in the audience to respect females and give them space.
THE SHOW WAS INCREDIBLE! I sweat buckets and ended up with crazy, frizzy hair but it was all worth it. Ab-Soul is a very engaging performer, his songs are awesome, and he deserves to be the centre-of-attention up there on the stage.
