Check Out Behind-the-Scenes Photos From XXL’s Freshman Show in NYC
Last night at New York City's Best Buy Theater, the 2015 XXL Freshman Class took over for a performance that was memorable for plenty of reasons. Shy Glizzy opened the show rocking the new Yeezy 350 Boosts and performing with his puppy on stage; K Camp led a singalong with the whole crowd to some of his biggest hits; Tink impressed everyone with her lyrical master class; Vince Staples rocked the mic with expertise on the day his debut album Summertime '06 hit stores; G-Unit repped for Kidd Kidd, who was arrested outside the show; and Fetty Wap burned the theater to the ground (theoretically, of course) with "My Way" and "Trap Queen," among his other bubbling cuts. It was, to say the least, madness.
Of course, not everything goes according to plan when a show of this magnitude comes together. Raury couldn't make the show, OG Maco wound up with a medical emergency that stopped him from being able to perform, a travel hiccup prevented GoldLink from making his flight and Kidd Kidd was arrested outside the venue when he arrived to perform. And that was all before the show even started. But, as they say, the show must go on, and the XXL Freshmen made sure it was worth it. We caught all the action both on stage and behind the scenes to give you a full picture of all the madness and fun of this year's XXL Freshman show in New York City.
