Kamaiyah, the only female performer of the evening, opened the show with some of her hits including “How Does It Feel,”  “F**** It Up,” and the YG track she’s featured on, “Why You Always Hatin’.” She also let the crowd know that she has an album on the way.

Playboi Carti continued to warm the crowd up as he milly rocked his way across the stage. He performed songs like “Woke Up LIke This.”

Meanwhile Los Angeles native rapper, Nipsey Hussle performed from his latest album, Victory Lap. Fans reacted immediately as Nipsey Hussle dressed in a matching blue sweatsuit started off his set with “Victory Lap.” He then went to crowd favorite, “Rap N****s,” both songs from his latest project. For his older fans, he made sure to include songs like “Checc Me Out.” Nipsey Hussle rounded out his performance with “Dedication” before moving on to one of his most popular singles to date, “Last Time That I Checc’d.”  

ASAP Ferg, who started off on-stage, halfway through his performance made his way through the crowd in the arena. He created an intimate environment by moving from chair to chair to interact with the crowd and quickly became a crowd favorite as he performed songs like “New Level,” “Work,” and “Shabba.” 

Meek Mill came out blazing with the club anthem “Dreams and Nightmares.” Throughout his set he brought out several special guests that started with an appearance by Yo Gotti who joined him for “Rake It Up.” That was followed by a performance by YG who rapped his newest single, “Big Bank.” Before fans knew it, 2 Chainz, YG and Meek were all on stage. Meek then turned to a more serious note as he paid tribute to XXXTenacion, the young rapper who lost his life to gun violence.  Meek’s heartfelt performance included a message to concert-goers, “Make sure you think about it before you kill somebody that look just like you.” 

Rae Sremmurd closed out the show with a medley of hits including “Swang,” “No Flex Zone, “Guatemala” and “Black Beatles.”
