Trap horns — the siren blasts often heard in hip-hop music — blared over Prospect Avenue May 3 as about 1,000 students and their guests turned out to see Lawnparties headliner Big Sean. Despite a controversy over the rapper’s lyrics — including a student petition to cancel his act — there were no protests. About 50 students attended an alternative event at Campus Club, featuring live music and a barbecue, as Big Sean was on stage. During his performance, the rap artist urged the students to “surround yourself with positive people who will bring the best out of you.”
