She got to stand front row in the general admission floor pit.

Ruppel (‘18) says, “I was so excited to go to the concert and it surpassed all my expectations. I had been waiting to see him in concert for over a year. Being in the front row was amazing because he is one of my favorite performers, so it was a dream come true. The atmosphere was awesome because everyone was so nice and we were all there to see the same person, who was not just a regular vulgar rapper but has a message beyond himself.”
