While Beyoncé packed the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for Day 1 of the Made in America music festival, day 2 brought out just as much with a more hip hop geared line up with names like Big Sean, Fabolous, J. Cole, Jidenna, and Future; with The Weeknd as the headline act to close out the two-day festival on Sunday, September 6 in Philly.
The second day of the festival was way hotter than the first but that didn’t stop the thousands of crowds who came out with just as much energy as they did for round one.
Fabolous showed mad love to the city of Brotherly Love when he brought out Philly’s own Young Guns and Freeway to perform some of their records like “Can’t Stop, Wont’ Stop” and “What We Do.” Fab performed many of his own hits like “Young’n (Holla Back)” and “Throw It In The Bag.” One of the funnier parts of his show was Kevin Hart opening his performance in a video of him calling Fab to give some pointers of what us Philly folks like such as: Muslim oil, cheese steaks, pretzels, and tie dye shirts.
Future took the stage at the peak of the heat in the day and rocked out to a crowd that spanned the Parkway to rival Queen Bey. The amount of people jumping and rapping along with Future was mind blowing to see up close and personal.
I was for one was all too ready to see Big Sean take the main stage, Rocky Stage. The Dark Sky Paradise rapper performed many songs off his latest album, including one of my favs “Play No Games,” and some of his earlier work and motivational record “One Man Can Change The World.” A song that landed him his first VMA for a video with a social message. He also had a segment during his set where he stressed living your dreams and I was here for it!
Earlier in the day the “Classic Man” had a turned up set as he hosted a yoga booty contest and performed his hit song off The Wondaland Presents: Eephus EP and others.
Bigger acts of the night came with Axwell & Ingrosso, J. Cole, and The Weeknd closing out the successful music festival.
