On Friday (Aug. 13), Lil Wayne and his lifestyle brand, GKUA, hosted a fun-filled Uproar Hip-Hop Festival at the Torch, located outdoors at the Los Angeles Coliseum in California.
Lil Wayne headlined the event, with surprise guest appearances from Big Sean, The Game and Wiz Khalifa. Big Latto was the first major act to hit the stage, followed by Polo G. During her performance, Latto delivered some of her fan-favorite tunes including “The Biggest,” “No Hook” and “He Say She Say.” Soon after, Polo G hit the stage and delivered his tracks including “Epidemic” and “Rapstar.”
Later in the evening, Lil Wayne performed a medley of his hit songs including “Rich as F—,” “Good Kush and Alcohol,” “Mrs. Officer” and “How to Love.”
Ahead of Big Latto’s performance, several dancers showed off their skills during the Uproar Dance Competition. Solo performers competed for a cash prize of $3,000 while dance duos competed for the $5,000 cash prize. Also before Latto hit the stage, a number of rising artists performed their own original music.
Additional performers included: Young Money Featuring Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, Hoodie Baby, Euro, Jay Jones, Yaj Kader and Mellow Rackz.
R&B hitmaker Mario was among those to attend.
