Hit Boy hit the stage first and gave an impressive performance. He had energy, kept the crowd engaged, and even brought out Rich Boy to perform "No Talking" with him. I can't say for sure that everyone knew who he was but those who did were super hype, and the others kept watching.
Major highlights of the day/night included A Tribe Called Red, YG, Iggy Azalea, and Kendrick Lamar/TDE.
A Tribe Called Red definitely put on a show. I'd never seen them in action before but their set was live! They use an eclectic fusion of instrumental hip hop, reggae, moombahton, and dubstep-influenced dance music to create a rave type musical atmosphere. The crowd danced the entire time. They even had a hula hoop dancer who jumped off stage and led everyone in a large circle dance.
YG hit the stage in the dead of the afternoon with a crowd that had nearly tripled in size. Everyone was singing along as he performed hits such as "Don't Tell Em" with special guest Jeremih, "RIP" , and he even threw in a special ode to Snoop. He also had DJ Mustard on the beat, who played a special medley of his hits.
Iggy Azalea had a crowd waiting long before she came out. I was honestly looking forward to her performance and she didn't disappoint. Her backup dancers and singers were amazing and she kept her audience pretty captivated...especially because she kept "twerking". Rita Ora had a cameo during "Black Widow" and the screams and applause was deafening.
