Chevy Woods opened for the tour and performed alongside the 2013 BET Best Hip Hop DJ, DJ Drama. Woods and Wiz Khalifa have known each other for years and have both been apart of the well known entertainment company, Taylor Gang.

Moneybagg Yo was the second artist performance of the night. Some fans may know Moneybagg Yo from his famous feature on Lil Baby’s hip-hop song: All of a Sudden. Moneybagg Yo and Chevy Woods both had great opening acts.

Playboi Carti is well known from his name in the fashion industry, as well as his nomination and appearance in the 2017 10th anniversary of the XXL Freshman List. Playboi was born in Riverdale, GA and was the first of three top headline performances to appear on stage. Carti carried out one of the greatest performances of the night.

As the sun set, fans continued to pour in from throughout the venue. Water, food and alcoholic beverages were sold to fans as the event preceded. Lakewood ushers and security did an outstanding job making sure to attend to concert goers who had any questions relating to seating or had been dehydrated from the day’s weather.
