Saturday night, Florida rapper BLP Kosher headlined a raucous Varsity theater in Minneapolis on the last stop of his “The Dreidelman Saga Tour”. 

Before the show started, fans were lined up around the block in Dinkydown, all anxious to enter the venue and begin their music-filled night. As the venue’s compact space filled with the eager fans, anticipation crackled in the air, setting the stage for all of the electrifying performances the night had in store.

The first opener of the night was an artist from South Florida by the name of Trapland Pat. As soon as he walked on stage, he made a beeline for the barricade and spent most of his set interacting with fans up close. He filmed videos for fans on their phones and stuck the mic out to fans who were rapping along to the songs and seemed to love connecting with his fans up close. His set was cut short by time constraints, and he walked off stage with fans cheering for more. 

Second to the stage was rapper Certified Trapper, a native of Milwaukee Wisconsin. Just like Pat, Certified Trapper wasted no time in hopping off the stage and climbing onto the barricade, energetically interacting with fans and rapping into their phones while they recorded him. Trapper’s rapping was infectious, and The crowd was fully engaged, enthusiastically responding to his lyrics. Certified Trapper’s dynamic performance left a lasting impression, showing that he is a solid upcoming artist in the Millwakee trap music scene

Last to step on stage was none other than BLP Kosher, a Jewish Rapper from Boca Raton Florida, with a unique flow, and oddball lyrics that have gained him the fame he brings coming into the first headliner tour of his short career thus far. Unlike his opening acts, BLP Kosher stuck to packing back on forth on stage and hopping along to the beat of the booming bass of his songs. The crowd shouted the lyrics to all of his most popular songs, including “Violent Lullaby” featuring Yung Lean, “Mazel Tron” (A song featuring his good friend BabyTron), and his newest single “Skidoo”. Kosher Commanded the stage, thanking the crowd in between songs for keeping the energy up and making the show a night to remember. He finished his set off with his hit song “Special K” where the crowd amped their energy up one more time to go bar for bar with him as he rapped the song.
