In this Preshow Rituals segment, the hip hop artist, YONAS, shares what he does before every show. You can check out his rituals, after the break.

Before every show, I first take some time to reflect on how blessed I am to be playing in front of any crowd let alone people who know the lyrics to my music and sing them back to me. Then I proceed to take 3 shots of gin :)

 

My goal at every show is to provide an electric energy. I want people to watch me perform and feel something. Experience something larger than life! I usually hang out backstage with my DJ, my tour crew, and sometimes friends (depending on the city) and the vibe is fun and loose. We’re not about to throw a concert, we’re about to rock a party. 5 minutes before set time, I fully zone in, and hang by myself next to the stage entrance. 1 Minute to stage time my DJ begins to play a mashup of Ludacris’s “Stand Up” while I speak from backstage. The crowd hears my voice for the first time and begins to cheer in anticipation. My DJ stops the record… “Y’all ready?!?!” I run out, we drop the intro to my first song… it’s on!

Keep up with the artist on Facebook!
