Gucci Mane, Logic and Post Malone to Perform at 2017 MTV Video Music Awards
Gucci Mane, Logic and Post Malone have officially been added to the performance roster of this year's 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. MTV announced today (Aug. 21) that the three rappers will each have their turn on the VMA's stage.
Logic is set to perform his suicide prevention track “1-800-273-8255” with pop singer Khalid, the highest charting single of his career thus far. Guwop, meanwhile, will be joined on stage by girl group Fifth Harmony to perform their collab “Down.” Last but not least, "Congratulations" hitmaker Posty will be on hand for what MTV calls a "special performance."
In addition to performing, both Logic and Gucci Mane are in the running for "moon people" at this year's ceremony. Logic's “Black SpiderMan” off his Everybody album is nominated in the category of Best Fight Against the System while Gucci is nominated with Fifth Harmony for Best Pop Song thanks to "Down."
Guwop, Logic and Post join the already star-studded lineup of performers which includes Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd. Kendrick has the most appearances on the nominees list this year out of any artist with eight nominations. Voting is still open in a few categories for this year's awards, so make sure you cast your ballot in time.
This year's annual VMA's are going down Sunday, Aug. 27 at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. EST, but in the meantime, check out some of the best hip-hop VMA performances from years past.
