Big Latto Kicks Off UPROAR Hip Hop Festival As First Major Act
On August 13, Lil Wayne hosted UPROAR, a hip-hop festival that featured surprise guest appearances from some of the biggest names in the music industry.
The first performer was Big Latto, a 21-year-old rapper who performed some of her most popular songs, including “The Biggest,” “No Hook” and “He Say She Say.”
Latto wore a matching all-white ensemble, including her nail color, and she posted about the festival on Twitter.
The artist was followed by rapper Polo G, as well as Big Sean, The Game and Wiz Khalifa.
The festival, which was held outdoors at the Los Angeles Coliseum, was more than just a concert. In addition to music, The Coliseum’s website said that UPROAR “celebrate[d] culture and community through live performances, dance teams, interactive experiences, art, food, and beverage.”
Before the night’s headliners took the stage, the festival also hosted Uproar Dance Competition. Single performers competed for a top cash prize of $3,000 while duos sought after the coveted $5,000 that came with first place.
Additional artist performances included Young Money Featuring Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, Hoodie Baby, Euro, Jay Jones, Yaj Kader and Mellow Rackz.
