Stormzy, the midday performance, showed New York what South London is all about. Stormzy and his DJ, Merky, turned the crowd into what he likes to call the “Energy Crew”. I had never heard of the pair but after an hour and a half of jumping and shoving in the mosh pit I would have to consider myself a fan. Songs like “Shut Up” and “One Take Freestyle” embody the hype that Stormzy and Merky kept throughout their set. When all was said and done, it was undeniable that Stormzy was among our favorites of the day, and would recommend that everyone who loves a good time goes to see the British rapper whenever they get the chance.

Childish Gambino wrapped up the festival with what was his first and only performance of 2017. The Two time Grammy nominee performed songs from his album Awaken, my Love! which debuted #1 on the Billboard R&B charts. Gambino’s soulful voice had everyone in the crowd moving their hips, while his unique rap style had everyone jumping.  His heavily anticipated finale, “Redbone”, literally put me in a trance. Never have I heard something so melodious live. Gambino maintained a very vibrant stage presence, telling jokes as well as stories and even releasing his unborn son’s name, Legend. He ended the night by announcing to his audience that he had just one last album left in him, saying “I’ll see you for the last Gambino album” before walking off stage. If it is anything like what he has done in the past, I can hardly wait.
