On the second day of Made in America, the main highlights of the night were YG and Pharrell. YG hit the stage perfectly on time and killed it! He performed all of his hits including, "My N*gga," and "Left, Right." He brought out a Free Meek Mill t-shirt and rapping alongside Meek's track "Dreams and Nightmare's Intro."
The crowd wasn't as enthusiatic as they would have been had Meek been there, but it was still a cool moment. YG also played Bobby Shmurda's "Hot N*gga," and had the whole crowd doing the "shmoney dance."
In the middle of all of this, he even had time to convince a few girls in the crowd to flash him. He ended his set with the smash, "Who Do You Love?"
Fast forward to 6:30PM, all of us are gearing up for Pharrell's set and then all of sudden....
A huge storm rolls into Philly and everyone is forced to evacuate the festival. Talk about terrible timing! The Made in America Festival was almost a storm disaster zone. After about an hour, the storm started to clear and the gates were opened again. Crowds rushed in as the festival kicked off where it had left off with performances from Spoon and Girl Talk (with special guest Philly's own, Freeway).
Pharrell was up next. As his band, back-up singers, and dancers began to take their places, the crowd was going crazy with excitement. He opened up with Daft Punk's "Lose Yourself to Dance," and swiftly when into "Come Get it Bae." The lighting, the dancers, Pharrell's hat, everything was just perfect.
He performed a medley of hits he produced, new and old. From "Frontin," to"Over Now," all the way to "Beautiful," he performed all of the hits. It was honestly the perfect set. Pharrell has a ton of hits in his catalog and his displayed this in Philly. "She Wants to Move" sounds amazing live. I really wish Pharrell would have headlined the show. Performances like these are supposed to make you want to hear that artist more and support. Based on this, I'm dying for Pharrell to go on tour! He ended his set with "Happy" rightfully.
Day 2 of Made in America was definitely a crazy one, but worth every raindrop! Looking forward to want new experiences 2015 will bring.
