During the third night of its concert series, BET Experience 2017 and Goldenvoice pulled out all of the stops for hip-hop night at the Staples Center; where the east coast met the west coast; featuring A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, plus many many more!
In addition to the special night’s headliners; were its special guests: Lil Yachty; Young Thug; Rae Sremmurd; Gucci Mane; Migos; and two other performers, who fans were surprised with.
Opening the show with his latest bangers was Lil Yachty; who made sure he not only performed for the audience, but also partied with us; jumping railings and more to crowd surf and rock out with everyone to: “Peek A Boo;” “Broccoli;” “Shoot Out The Roof;” and more.
Atlanta rapper Young Thug followed, performing his throwback hits like: “Digits; “Lifestyle;” “Pick Up The Phone;” “About The Money;” and newer jams off of his recently released Beautiful Thugger Girls album.
Fellow Atlantans, Migos, hit the stage next to get right with us; as they performed all of their recent hits like: “What The Price;” “Kelly Price;” “Bad and Boujee;” and 2013-14 mapping jams like: “Hannah Montana;” and “Fight Night.”
Another Atlanta rap group, Rae Sremmurd, bounced onto the stage next with their classics and newer joints like: “By Chance;” “No Type;” “Come Get Her;” “Throw Sum Mo;” “Black Beatles;” “Unforgettable;” and even debuted a new single exclusively for BET Experience 2017, entitled “Perplexin Pegasus.”
Prior to bringing out special surprise guest; Young Dolph; who performed “100 shots” and “Get Paid;” Gucci Mane blessed us with his classics like: “Lemonade;” “Steady Mobbin’;” “I Think I Love Her;” “Freaky Gurl;” and newer Drake-assisted track, “Both.”
And just before exiting stage left; Guwop invited Migos back out to hit us one time with their collaborative track, “Slippery.”
Finally; headliners A$AP Rocky and ScHoolboy Q hit the Staples Center stage together, putting on a fiery ‘A$AP x TDE’ spectacle that those who couldn’t attend, would definitely be sour about missing.
Before Rocky and ScHoolboy took the stage separately with their respective A$AP Mob and TDE brethren; they first hit us with their joint tracks: “Brand New Guy” and “Hands On The Wheel.”
While ScHoolboy hit backstage for a bit; A$AP blessed us with he and the Mob’s joints like: “Telephone Calls;” “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2);” “Shabba Ranks;” “Yamborghini High;” “Crazy Brazy;” and “Hella Hoes.”
Switching spots; ScHoolboy jumped right back out for “Hell Of A Night;” “Collard Greens;” “Man Of The Year;” “Studio;” and “THat Part;” just before donning us with another special surprise guest of the evening.
Closing the night out with a humble bang; ScHoolboy brought out the King of Compton, Kendrick Lamar; who alongside A$AP Mob and TDE brethren; performed his flaming banger, “Humble.”
So; it’s safe to say the crowd was utterly surprised and by end of show, BET Experience 2017’s hip-hop night was a colossal success.
