Big Fancy Go Show Featuring Wiz Khalifa

Earlier this month, the visual for Wiz Khalifa’s soaring pop-rap No. 1 hit “See You Again” surpassed Psy’s “Gangnam Style” video as the most-viewed YouTube upload of all time. So to say Wiz has transcended his initial labeling as a weed rapper is an understatement. While he doesn’t have Kendrick’s sprawling ambition or Drake’s pop versatility, Wiz has long been able to stuff a setlist with stylistically wide-ranging bangers, from melodic mega-hits to hard trap deep cuts. He’s also more prolific than he gets credit for, with his two mixtapes from June, Pre-Rolleds and Bong Rips, doing big online numbers despite little fanfare. For this Go 95.3 FM-presented outdoor mini-fest, Wiz will be joined by Long Beach’s Vince Staples, whose heavily electronic Big Fish Theory is not only whip-smart but also one of the year’s most forward-thinking rap LPs. Also performing: Blackbear and locals Bobby Raps, Finding Novyon, and Mac Irv. All ages.
