(Video) Lil Wayne Calls Out “Bullsh*t Ass Birdman” At Mass Appeal Show

On Friday night, Lil Wayne headlined Mass Appeal’s annual SXSW show, Live At The BBQ. During his set, Tunechi took yet another moment to let everyone know how much he REALLY doesn’t rock with Birdmn. “If you think that I am stressing or letting this shit get to me, please remember, there’s too much good pussy and too many great motherf**kin’ loyal fans to worry about bullshit ass Birdman,” Wayne told the crowd, before launching into “No Worries.” Watch the performance below!


(Video) Cardi B. Dominates With SXSW Performance At Fader Fort

Cardi B. hit the SXSW circuit for the first time this year, and it’s clear that the Bronx native was a breakout artist at the annual showcase! Along with a performance at a showcase put together for artists at her label, Atlantic Records, Cardi also took the stage at the Fader Fort – which is a huge deal! During her set, she performed (among other songs) “Lick,” which is her recently-released collab with her rumored boo, Offset. The crowd’s reaction was wild! Check out a clip of the performance below. I’m rooting for Cardi, man!


(Video) Lil Yachty & His Crew Go In On Unhappy Concert-Goer

Lil Yachty was all over SXSW this year, but apparently, the experiences weren’t all positive. While performing for his label’s showcase on Friday night at the YouTube space, reports state that Yachty was low on energy and even “anti-charisma,” adding that he had trouble staying on beat during the 40-minute set. Perhaps this is why the crowd had a lackluster response to what is arguably Yachty’s biggest track (well, feature), “Broccoli.” “Damn that shit was so crazy,” Yachty said when he finished performing, looking at the dead crowd. “That shit sounded like y’all dreaded that shit.” This prompted an attendee to respond with, “You got no energy, n*gga!” and it escalated quickly from there. Check out what happened from there below.
