SoFaygo seems to be taking over as hip-hop’s next big star. Off the success of his latest album After Me, his Lyrical Lemonade treatment for “Knock Knock” as well as his viral acclaim on TikTok, Faygo is going up at an astronomical pace.
Co-signed by Trippie Redd, Lil Uzi Vert and others, Faygo’s allure is within his melodic, airy vocals — transporting listeners to the love-torn world he resides in. Signing with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records in April 2021, his voice and sound are instantly captivating, as Faygo is more than primed for mainstream super-stardom.
Before he reaches that peak, however, he’s still starting small — performing for the first time ever Saturday (July 17) in Atlanta. Presented by SoundCloud, his free concert at The Loft proved to be both an exciting yet chaotic experience, as the show was prematurely shut down due to overcrowding issues at the venue.
According to Faygo’s representative, The Loft operates at a 650-person max capacity. Over 3,000 fans showed up to catch a glimpse at Faygo on stage for the first time, striving to see him before he hits festival stages and selling out arenas with Trippie Redd and iann dior on Redd’s upcoming “Tripp At Knight” tour. While most fans were not let into the venue, they took to the parking lot to turn up on their own.
Despite the unplanned flux of fans, Faygo’s show served him well in the ATL — getting first-hand experience with a smaller crowd before he hits bigger and better stages. Expect SoFaygo to continue his tear as the new wave’s most promising artist this summer.
