07-16-2022- Music Hall of Williamsburg had the pleasure of hosting Epic Records own DDG. The Michigan native headlined a rather intimate show that gave those in attendance a chance to not only witness his versatility but also a real chance to connect with what he referred to as his day ones.
The show kicked off with Baby Rich, an upcoming Alabama artist who recently dropped a single called “Simon Says”. Even though Baby Rich is new to the music industry- it was clear that he has an immense amount of talent. While his time on stage was brief, he made the most of his time on stage.
Following Baby Rich, was Paidway. T.O. The Pontiac ,Michigan native performed his newest single “Okay,Okay” along with some of his older material that those in attendance seem to really resonate with as Paidway. T.O. is also DDG’s cousin and along with his music has a real following within the YouTube community.
The headliner, DDG, hit the stage around 930 as the crowd huddled around the stage in anticipation. As the lights went dark and DDG entered through the side door all that was visible was his diamond chain and watch reflecting in the dark- the climatic entrance was foreshadowing what was to come.
DDG, has been in the headlines for boxing and making the most of his YouTube endeavors, however as he began running through his catalog of music it was clear that he has a real talent for headlining. As he had a song for almost every occasion, quickly showing those that were not familiar with his music that he is more than you would expect.
It did not take long for those in attendance to erupt as DDG performed his breakout hit “Moonwalking in Calabasas”- the 2021 certified platinum song caught his day one fans in a fluster, as towards the end of his set DDG even allowed one of his fans to come on stage with him to perform the song on the stipulation that the fan had to know the song word for word.
As the fan got on stage, he did not disappoint as his immediate energy caught everyone by surprise- DDG included. Shortly after the fan spit verse word for word DDG congratulated him and thanked everyone for coming out.
