Next was YG, who just recently dropped a sequel to his FDT(Fuck Donald Trump) song with tour mate G-Eazy and Macklemore. FDT was his most interactive song, by starting a “Fuck Donald Trump” chant throughout the pavilion. A legion of people screamed the chant as the song started and had the energy set for the night.
Yo Gotti took the stage with a DJ and a live acoustic drummer alongside a member of his entourage. Backlit by a wall of led screens that showed clips from music videos along with his performance. On point and never missing a beat, Yo Gotti had the crowd bouncing and singing along.

His stage setup was a tower of led screens that formed a platform for his DJ. He jumped, ran, and even had a mini rap-battle with a fan in the front row, who he gave his hat to. He performed several hits off of his critically acclaimed album The Incredible True Story and his recently dropped mixtape Bobby Tarantino.
The headliner of the night, G-Eazy, played with a panorama of led screens that lined the stage from one end to the other. The center screen rose with a wash of white light bleeding out and creating a silhouette of G-Eazy. The full live band kicked off as he walked to center stage, the center screen lowered and crowds’ screams rose high. Energy: it doesn’t even describe how PNC felt, You could feel G-Eazy’s performance from the pit, to the front row, to the lawn seats.
**I would like to make a statement to all those who attended this event, several people, while waiting in line did pass out, and even had seizures, because of the heat and being dehydrated. This isn’t a fun thing to go through, for anyone. So PLEASE take care of yourselves, we love you here at Shutter 16 and we want to keep covering these shows for you, and we want you to be there with us. Stay safe! Stay hydrated! And keep the summer rolling!
