Cardi B, A$AP Ferg, Total Freedom, Kelela and more @ Warm Up (pics, video)
Warm Up at MoMA PS1 continued on Saturday (8/12) with a particularly exciting lineup of hip hop and dance music. Back to back sets from A$AP Ferg (who brought out A$AP Twelvvy and ventured into the crowd) and Cardi B drove the huge, hyped crowd into a frenzy, peaking in Cardi’s performance of the viral hit “Bodak Yellow,” which had the majority of the courtyard rapping right back at her. Complex says:
Her latest performance at Warm Up 2017, the outdoor music series at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, sent the crowd into hysterics, and it appeared almost every single person in the audience was prepared to belt out the lyrics to “Bodak Yellow” when the time came.
Judging by the reactions to her performance on a bill that featured ASAP Ferg, Hitmakerchinx, and Total Freedom, Cardi appeared to have stolen the show, earning rave reviews from everyone in attendance.
Watch video clips from Cardi and Ferg’s sets below.
Total Freedom closed out the day with Ryan Trecartin, and a surprise appearance from Kelela; watch video of that below.
Saturday’s Warm Up also had sets from Yatta, inc. no world (joined by Ian Isiah for a set of gospel standards), and Hitmakerchinx (and dancers). Pictures from the whole day are in the gallery above.
There are only three more Warm Ups this season; the bill for the last one was recently announced, and Little Dragon headlines.
