Lauryn Hill, Dave East, Nicki Minaj, T.I. and More Perform at 2016 Tidal X Concert
For the second year in a row, the Tidal X concert went down in Brooklyn. This year's show didn't disappoint, with some big names taking the stage at the Barclay's Center including Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, Common, T.I, Robin Thicke, Dave East and Lil Yachty.
Common killed his set, rapping "Go" over Kanye West's "Fade" beat, and Tip ran through several songs including his new anthem "We Will Not."
One of the highlights of the night was Lauryn Hill who wooed the crowd with her performance of "Ex Factor."
XXL Freshmen Dave East and Lil Boat got a chance to show their stuff.
Nicki made a spectacle when she called out Donald and Melania Trump during her set. “It’s o-motherfucking-k. Cause Barack needed a Michelle, bitch. And Bill needed a motherfucking Hillary, bitch,” she yelled to the crowd. “You better pray to God you don’t get stuck with a motherfucking Melania. You niggas want brainless bitches to stroke your motherfucking ego. Fuck you nigga.”
Nicki also brought out Fetty Wap to perform "Trap Queen."
Backstage, Minaj got to meet Lauryn Hill for the first time and almost lost her damn mind. Nicki fell at the feet of the former Fugees front woman and bowed, while giving her praise.
