Shaky Beats – A$AP Ferg

A$AP Ferg announced at the start of his set that he didn’t come to Atlanta to perform.  Instead, head said, he was here to party.

The set was filled with some crowd pleasing crowd surfing much to the bewilderment of the security staff.

Shaky Beats – Nas

Hip Hop icon Nas performed to a crowd filled with fans that were probably in grade school when Nas’ first album, Illmatic, dropped back in 1994.

DJ Green Lantern and Nas put in a political statement during their show with a remix of “I Don’t Fuck with You” dedicated to Donald Trump.
