vitaminwater uncapped LIVE hit LA’s Freak City in full force last night. DJ SkeetSkeet warmed up with an appropriately broad set, ranging from dubstep to ASAP Rocky. LA’s own Pink Dollaz hit the stage next. Once mere teenage jerkin queens, the quartet have grown into lyrical seductresses with an unexpectedly refined stage show, complete with heavily choreographed dance routines and two male setpieces/backup dancers. Young L was up next, a noticeably reserved but potent performer. He kept his head low and letting his earth shaking alien productions do most of the talking and later brought out fellow Pack member Stunnaman (on crutches no less!) to revisit their teenage radio hit “Vans.”
But it was The Pack’s breakout star and show curator Lil B The Based God who truly blessed the crowd with his schizophrenic and irreverent brilliance. As he ran through favorites “Bill Bellamy” and “Wonton Soup” his legendarily loyal and spatula wielding fanbase serenaded him with the birthday song (today’s his 22nd) and eventually inspired a good chunk of the audience—including none other than hometown Odd Future mascots Taco and Jasper—bumrushed the stage to rock in unison with the Based God.
