Curren$y at Marquis Theater, 10/21/10

Big K.R.I.T. • Smoke DZA • Corner Boy P
10.21.10 | Marquis Theater

It was little testy last night at the Marquis. Things got off to a tense start with a heavy-handed security presence combined with a restlessness on the part of the crowd as they waited for the show to get going -- more than half the crowd was on hand before the DJ started spinning. When things got underway, the opening act, Corner Boy P, had such an awful flow that save if not for his collaborator, New Orleans native, Fiend, his set could have -- and probably should've -- just been skipped altogether.
