This weekend in Philadelphia, the Made In America Music Festival had the city in a frenzy. With artist like Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Lil B and hometown hero Meek Mill gracing the stage it was sure to be a show to remember.
Philadelphia native Meek Mill performed at his self-proclaimed ‘Welcome Home’ party and didn’t disappoint. Performing hits like ‘I’ma Boss’, ‘House Party‘, ‘We Ball‘ and the ever popular ‘Dreams and Nightmares Intro‘ he had the crowd rocking thoughtout his 49-minute set. He brought out PNB Rock and local upcoming artist Tierra Whack to work the stage with him. The King of Philly showed up for his hometown and the love was given right back:
Depending if you’re a Barb or just a casual fan everyone had different opinions of Nicki’s performance. At points of the headlining performance, it looked as if Nicki was unsure of the words to her own songs and unprepared.
But she brought out Philly native Lil Uzi Vert and did her song with 6ix9ine ‘FEFE’ among a list of hits from her long discography. But for the first female rapper to headline Made In America, this performance made me want more, Even with the unexpected nip slip:
‘Pulitzer Kenny’ was a late addition to the lineup at Made In America, but he didn’t disappoint while going thru some cuts from his albums, ‘Good Kid, M.a.a.D. City‘, ‘To Pimp A Butterfly‘ and ‘DAMN!’.
If you’ve never enjoyed a K. Dot concert live then add that to the bucket list of things to do.
The polarizing artist known as ‘the rainbow haired guy’ in many circles had one of the standout performances on Day 2 of the festival. 6ix9ine performed a bunch of his records including ‘GUMMO‘ and ‘FEFE‘ which had the crowd going crazy and singing along with the TreyWay artist. His tribute to slain fellow artist, XXXtentacion, was dope in every way possible:
I wish the boy kept his damn clothes on tho.
TDE was in the building Sunday with both Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock performing. Rock tho gave us cuts from his new album ‘Redemption‘ that was released early this summer.
Tho on the Tidal Stage he had the crowds energy going through his 23-minute set. Doing cuts like ‘Win‘ and ‘King’s Ransom‘ you felt the energy through the crowd as well as on stage.
