If you clicked on this headline expecting to see photos of wax, dudes with insane arm tattoos, and elaborate smoking contraptions, guess again. (Don’t worry, that post is coming later this week.) This Dab Fest instead featured some of the folks running Atlanta hip-hop right now, with performances by Migos, Rich the Kid, and Lil Yachty. It all went down at the Novo in Los Angeles last Friday.
Yachty had the theater go dark except for the light of cell phone flashlights during “Out Late,” and Migos had the floor shaking during “Hannah Montana.” Dab Fest drew a diverse crowd, but if you’re in the 22 and older category, you might have felt like an old guy at a high school party. It’s a yung, rich world out there.
