New York City was the place to be to enjoy live music from your favorite artists this past weekend. The highly successful rap festival known as Rolling Loud made its debut in the Big Apple—and it did not disappoint. DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Uzi Vert, A$AP Rocky, Meek Mill, Gunna, YG, Wale, Fabolous, and the Wu-Tang Clan were among the talented artists who performed in front of tens of thousands of festival-goers. But one artist stood out and solidified himself as the new king of live performances: Travis Scott.
The Houston native gave it his all, and fans were receptive to his energy as it created mini mosh-pit moments (“open it up!”) and Instagrammable moments. One moment made Scott the festival standout: Despite taking a nasty spill while performing “Butterfly Effect” from his latest album, ASTROWORLD, he still delivered one of the most epic concert performances of all time.
