I aint go no type, bad b*%#es is the only thing that I like”, ….” Cups with the ice and we do this every night” . Once Rae Sremmud hit the stage the Turn up was real; the two rapping sensations came out roaring, “No type” which is one of Rae Sremmud most notable songs. Their performance was one of the highlights of “The PinkPrint Tour”. “My Ex”, “This could be us” and “Throw some more”, were just a few of songs the duo massacred on stage.

The crowd followed along as Meek began to perform his song “ Miss my Dawgs” a tribute to Chinx and Snupe. No shade given to the fact that, Meek Mill gave the audience just what was anticipated, boldly restating his Comments about Drake not writing his verse. Meek mentioned that he heard ‘Charged Up’ calling it soft. Meek assured us that he is from the hood, and had to work his way up, writing his own material. Nevertheless, Meek has made it known that he is able to rock even through some of the hardest times in his life, with his loyal fans spitting every line he rapped.

Yo, I had to reinvent, I put the V in-vent, I put the heat in vents, man, I've been competing since, I look beyond what people saying, and I see intent, Then I just sit back, and decipher what they really meant”..

Pull up in the monster automobile, gangsta, With a bad b*&@h that came from Sri Lanka, Yeah I'm in that Tonka color of Willy Wonka, You could be the king but watch the queen conquer, OK, first things first I'll eat your brains, Then I'm a start rocking gold teeth and fangs; Cause that's what a motherf*#@ing monster do!!!!” Nicki killed the stage with her Monster Verse.
