UH's lifestyle and entertainment magazine - by students, for students

T-Pain and his crew brought the Mansion in Wiscansin Party to 713 Music Hall for the very first stop of the tour. Guests filled up all three floors from bar to bar, barricade to entrance.

DJ SLICK305 hyped up the crowd with songs for the Geminis and Hispanics, getting them ready for the show. “Swag Surfin’” and “Gasolina” were played and danced to before he introduced Young Cash as the next opener.

Young Cash came out bouncing to the beat of “Red Cup Party” with a red solo cup in hand. He led the crowd in a hype competition against both halves of the room. He and his crew then threw Mardi Gras necklaces at the crowd before giving a red solo toast from Florida to H-town.

NandoSTL strutted in with unique vocal backups and a heavier sound with roars and pure energy that the audience gave back tenfold. He displayed range between hype and calm with performances of “On Errthang” and “Weakdays,” before closing out his set with an invitation to the afterparty.

LaRussell then ran on stage with “10s 20s 50s 100s.” His crowd interactions varied between inviting a lucky few to sing their favorite hits like “Blockchain,” and himself jumping into the crowd to dance and sing. The room roared as people stood and cheered for surprise performances from Paul Wall, Bun B and Trae tha Truth. LaRussell closed out with “Nah” as he once again joined the crowd while thanking Houston for being one of the biggest venues he has performed at.

The venue then went dark as magical harp chords crescendoed into a flash of bright light that revealed a sparkling mansion. T-Pain appeared from its golden doors and invited the audience in with the help of DJ Montay as they played hits both new and old.

The crowd collectively roared for classics such as “Buy U a Drank,” “I’m Sprung” and T-Pain’s performances with Young Cash as their duo group, Bluez Brothaz. Each track and remix was accompanied by visuals of shifting mansions, light shows and T-Pain’s own pop and lock skills.

T-Pain included many hits in his set that the audience could consider throwbacks such as “Bartender,” “I’m N Luv (With a Stripper)” and a cover of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.” T-Pain has collaborated with many artists in the past and is also recognized for his great cover work done through his “On Top Of The Covers” album.

Before the end of the show, T-Pain took a moment to address the audience, sharing his financial struggles from the past decade and how he has spent his time building himself back up. After this inspirational heart-to-heart, T-Pain closed out the show with the whole crew joining him in singing “All I Do Is Win,” and a final heartfelt solo performance of “On This Hill.”
