PNB Rock hit the stage second after Young MA left the crowd T’d up after performing “Ouuuuu.” When PNB Rock walked on stage ladies were screaming to the top of their lungs.  PNB Rock performed hit singles like “There She Go,” “Everyday We Lit,” and “Selfish.” Of course the ladies were singing every word to “Selfish” and the entire UIC Pavillon got lit singing “Everyday We Lit.”

Fresh off of the debut of The Bigger Artist, which he dropped the same day as the concert, A Boogie hit the stage on #BeastMode. A Boogie performed songs off his album like “Say A,” “Beast Mode,” and “Drowning.” “Drowning” is a hot song in the streets and the crowd definitely showed their love for the song! Everyone was singing the chorus and A Boogie turned down his laid back persona & turned up his energy. A Boogie brought back out PNB Rock to perform “Beast Mode.” To sum up his performance,  A Boogie couldn’t leave the stage without singing songs that gained him his fame. He performed “My Sh.t,” and “Jungle.”
