Travis Scott, Griselda and more

The post Rolling Loud New York Day 3 Recap: Travis Scott, Griselda and More first appeared on Consequence.

Rolling Loud New York 2021 ended on Saturday (October 30), after a first day dominated by hometown rappers was followed by J. Cole’s unforgettable performance in a torrential downpour.

There was once again the weather forecast, but this time the festival guests came more prepared for the weather with ponchos or rain jackets. Compared to the night before, Travis Scott handled lighter rain, which was probably a good thing considering how hard he and his fans raged throughout his performance.

Meanwhile, Griselda played their more traditional hip-hop brand, and Roddy Ricch continued to evolve as a star artist. A $ AP Ferg took its audience’s energy levels to their max, and City Morgue joined their fans in the pit. Young Nudy played one of the more relaxed sets of the day, despite fans still forming their own moshpits.

See some of the most memorable moments from day 3 below.

Young Nudy performed older fan favorites

Young Nudy played a set in the middle of the afternoon on the main stage and seemed comfortable with an audience that included his most loyal supporters. Dressed top to toe in red, Atlanta Slimeball was mostly pulled from his 2017 mixtape Boredom Country, exclaims fan favorites like “Hell Shell” and “Loaded Baked Potato”. In between encouraging moshpit circles, the Zone 6 rapper praised prominent costumes among the audience like a vampire with blood running down his face.

City Morgue joined Moshpit fans

Fans of City Morgue packed up in front of the second stage in anticipation of an intense set from their favorite duo that did not disappoint the audience. From the opening notes to the apt title “Neck Brace”, members of the audience cracked their own necks while headbanging and moshing to ZillaKami and SosMula’s signature mix of trap metal while shouting the lyrics back to the rappers. To the admiration of fans, ZillaKami even got into the action and jumped into the cave for the group’s performance of “Gravehop 187”. City Morgue maintained the same high energy level through an almost 30-minute set, ending on a high note with “SHINNERS13” and “33rd Blakk Glass”, two of their most popular songs.

A $ AP Ferg raised energy levels above 100 percent

After blowing up the stage with their explosive hit “New Level”, the A $ AP Ferg gave the Rolling Loud audience even more incentive to “take it up to 110 percent” by reminding them that surviving through a pandemic is something worth celebrating. From the start, fans were thrilled to see their hometown hero pour every ounce of energy into his performance, crowdsurfing and putting girls on his shoulders at the request of Harlem natives. For their efforts, they were rewarded with hits such as “Shabba”, “Work” and “Plain Jane”.

Roddy Ricch continued to reach out as a performer

With only one studio album under his belt, Roddy Ricch is still an artist in development, but the native Compton is already knowledgeable enough to give his performances extra depth by bringing an accompanying drummer and guitarist forward instead of relying on a backing track. Although at one point he expressed disappointment at the audience’s reaction, Ricch responded by giving the audience extra encouragement to sing along to hits like “Die Young” and “Lemonade.” After thanking fans for allowing him to get out of the streets, the talented rapper also pumped them up by apparently ending his set without his breakout single, “The Box”. Of course, he returned after a short outing and taught them a lesson in patience.

Griselda kept true hip-hop alive

Before Buffalo’s finest took the stage, their fans got a brief introduction to First Lady of Griselda, Armani Caesar, who proved to be a skilled spit in itself. Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine and Benny the Butcher went on to provide a clinic in street rap. During their 40-minute set, the charismatic leader WSG mostly stepped back to give Conway, Benny and Armani ample opportunity to show off their amazing talent.

Travis Scott raged loudly across the stage

Like J. Cole’s main performance a night earlier, the rain began to fall at the beginning of La Flame’s set, but that did not stop him from walking across a raised platform high above the stage to an impressed audience ready to close. out of the festival in a purely cultivating way. When Travis said he wanted to shake Citi Field to the ground, it did not seem entirely outside the realm of opportunity.

Fans were so hyped to see him play that they stood on top of the porta pots to get a better view, and at least one person was almost trampled in the moshpit. They also seemed to know every single word of the songs he chose to play, apparently rattling the intensity with each line. Just when it looked like “Sicko Mode” (which saw Cactus Jack return to the elevated platform) was the night’s crescendo, Travis ended his set with a rendition of “goosebumps” accompanied by fireworks.

Even a middle-aged father was impressed with the play towards the end, taking videos of the unique experience. Especially given the unfortunate injury Travis sustained the last time Rolling Loud took place in New York City, there was no better choice for the festival’s main name.
