Crowd gets a pleasing concert

Despite a less than crowded audience, the Men’s Gymnasium was scattered with young ladies and a few guys waiting to see the acts lined up for the night.Comedian Rudy Rush graced the campus once again but this time as the MC.

Before the antsy crowd could enjoy the headliners, Day 26 and Pleasure P, they were entertained by other artists in an effort to get everybody in good spirits.

Local acts as well as campus craves such as Mike Bowden and Salea Hayes set the tone for the campus.

Lyrical Quest cutie Deron James gave an original ode to New Orleans with the soulful sounds from his guitar.

DJ Star kicked off a master mix, which included songs such as “Wasted” by Gucci, “Rubbing on My Head” by Mouse, and other songs from artists like C-Murder and Boosie.

Grambling local T2 was one of the many artists to set things off.
During their act, T2 brought out special guest Pretty Willie to serenade the ladies and add a twist to the hip-hop performance.

Fat Pat performed crowd favorites “Rack Daddy” and “Bizzy Body.”

GSU’s own Cash performed his hit single, “Walk wit’ a Dip.”
As soon as the beat dropped, the crowd began to immediately “sway wit’ a dip.”

In a collaborative number, Cash performed with T2, who was a part of his group Corporate Kings Cash, before he decided to take his career solo.

As DJ Juss, official DJ of Day 26, set up for them to get onstage, Rudy Rush took the opportunity to keep the crowd entertained.
“If you look behind you, you’ll see thousands of people,” said Rush, alluding to the fact that there weren’t a lot of people in attendance.

As Rush wrapped up his jokes, the anticipation grew stronger and the chants for Day 26 began to get louder.

The crowd went bananas as DJ Juss announced Day 26 was coming to the stage.

Girls began bum-rushing the media area in front of the stage to get a good look at the five illustrious men of Day 26.

Qwanell, known as “Q”, Willie, Robert, Mike and Brian ripped the concert stage.

Their freak-dance-breakdown enticed the ladies.

“Exclusive,” “Girlfriend,” “So Good” and “Baby,” a few of the group’s hit singles, were performed to perfection.

Day 26 ended the night with “Imma Put it on Her” as they ran through the crowd showing fans love.

Up next was Pleasure P, formerly of the group called Pretty Ricky. He announced his presence by asking the fans to “Come get this pleasure.”

Choosing three fans, he serenaded them as he sang his latest hit “Under.”

Pleasure performed pieces of a couple of hit songs he had when he was with his former group, hits like “Grind On Me,” “My Body” and “Hotline.”

Closing his segment with his hit “Boyfriend 2,” he insisted to the few men in the audience that it was OK to be that special man on the side.
