The star-studded event was part of the inaugural Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.
Super Bowl LIII may be a face-off between Los Angeles and New England, but on Thursday night (Jan. 31), the festivities were all about Atlanta. The SBLIII host city received a star-studded tribute at the EA Sports Bowl at State Farm Arena, where ATL natives Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Lil Jon, Ciara, T.I., Jeezy and Ludacris reminded fans that this is the epicenter of hip-hop.
The only out-of-towner to take the stage was St. Louis-born Metro Boomin, yet he made his set all about the ATL with help from 21 Savage. In between his own hits from the 2017 smash "Bank Account" to his current hit "A Lot," 21 Savage made sure to show his city some love as Metro declared, "We turnin' up tonight!"
Though the show had only begun, fans in attendance were clearly pumped for a night full of hip-hop, as songs in between each set -- led by hype man Big Tigger -- had the crowd going as wild as if they were live. While a lot of the tunes were throwbacks like Soulja Boy's "Turn My Swag On," Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" and D4L's "Laffy Taffy," Sheck Wes' "Mo Bamba" had the crowd the most riled up before the Quality Control family took over the stage.
