Songs such as “Sprung,” “Low,” “Buy You a Drank,” and “Up Down”, just to name a few, had the over-crowded audience crazed. Following T-Pain, the millennials’ favorite red-haired, mosh pit king, Lil Yachty, started the party. Yachty performed viral hits such as “I Spy,” “Peek a Boo,” and “Broccoli” before bringing A$AP Ferg on stage for “Work,” “New Level,” and “Minnesota.” Yachty later came back on stage for an encore performance of “Peek a Boo” during rapper, Young Thug’s set.
