Rolling Loud Festival 2017: A$AP Rocky, A$AP Mob steal the show
Miami, FL – Not only was it my first time in Miami, it was also my first time EVER attending an all-rap festival. There was no expectations going into Rolling Loud 2017, I mean really, how could I expect anything for the first time?
All I can say to start off is that I had the experience of a lifetime. I saw Future, Flatbush Zombies, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, XXXTentacion, Migos, and Lil Uzi Vert, just to name a few. Each rapper had their own style of set, visuals and stage effects. Not to mention each rapper brought their own vibe to the festival (we all went nuts when Lil Uzi took the stage dive).
That being said, there was one artist I have not yet mentioned and that would be A$AP Rocky with the whole A$AP Mob. They were absolutely INSANE. I cannot stress how much the crowd was vibing with Rocky and the gang. They had the energy, the fireworks, the noise and the hype to create one MASSIVE mosh pit that I almost didn’t make it out of. The set list was absolutely insanity.
He started with “LSD” (picture above taken during that song) and finished with a tribute to the late A$AP Yams with “Yamborghini High” which also had a huge round of fireworks, a crazy lightshow and the whole A$AP Mob gang coming on stage bouncing with the crowd.
I don’t know if it was because it was the first night of the festival, the weather was just perfect or the crowd was ready to bounce. All I know is that A$AP was one of the best if not THE best rapper I have seen live and I would do it all over again to see that set performance again.
