For some, "trapping" is a lifestyle and for others (like myself) trap music is a way of life. There's something about chest-vibrating bass and aggressive finger pointing that makes trap music a beautiful experience. On June 24th, the popular "Trap Karaoke" event made it's way to Philadelphia's Theater of The Living Arts on South Street. Hundreds of trap music lovers crowded the streets in anticipation of the night to come.
I knew that I wanted to get a really good view of the stage so I made plans to get stand in line an hour before the doors opened (and I'm very glad that I did). The line was wrapped around the block and was packed full of eager, self-proclaimed trap-stars waiting to get into the sold out show. As we waited, there was a guy checking ids and stamping hands for a smooth transition into the venue - FYI, this is a 21+ event
Once inside, it was every man and woman for themselves! The check in process was smooth and quick. I was greeted by a security officer who gave me a "once over" with his metal detector wand followed by a quick search of my purse and in less than a minute, I was inside of the venue. I quickly raced to the barricades that blocked concert attendees from the stage and secured my spot in the front.
Trap Karaoke was everything I imagined and more! It was an event that promoted unity, positivity, and was a safe haven for all who came. I was overwhelmed with how positive everyone was in the venue that night! If you came to the event not knowing one person, you were sure to make friends while you were there. If you are a trap music fan, I highly recommend you give this event a try if they come to your city. You won't regret it! Check out my SnapChat story from that night, it was lit.
