Day N’ Vegas returned for a second day on Saturday with the addition of Future, Metro Boomin’, Playboi Carti and Trippie Redd. Despite the loss of Travis Scott, day two was everything day one was and more. In the backdrop of the festival, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez took on Sergey Kovalev for the light heavyweight world title and the Las Vegas Knights went into overtime against the Winnipeg Jets. Simply put, there was a lot going on in the city. Unfortunately, we can’t bring everyone to Las Vegas, so we’ll bring it to you. Here’s a brief recap of everything that went down at Day N’ Vegas on Saturday.
Liked: Rico Nasty represents for the DMV.

Rico Nasty is an artist that may not top the charts or have the biggest presence on a commercial scale, but do not mistake that for a stagnant career. Rico Nasty has extended her reach from beyond the DMV area and push it across the country. At every festival, there is an artist that draws a crowd larger than many would expect. Yesterday, Cozz amassed a larger crowd than many would think. Today, Rico Nasty did the same and she did not disappoint once she drew in a large crowd. When we talk about the new era of MCs that happen to be women, do not forget to mention Rico Nasty’s name.
Learned: DaBaby’s team earns every penny they’re paid.

DaBaby is and will continue to be one of the most energetic performers in music today. From Rolling Loud to Made In America, the North Carolina native showed that he knows how to move a crowd. Often times, he has more energy than anyone in the crowd. His set at Day N’ Vegas proved no different. Moving from the middle of a sea of people to the stage and beyond is no small feat. It’s a security risk and something that would make any concert promoter hold their breath. Major congratulations is in order to his team that keeps him out of harms way and allows him to focus on what he does better than just about anyone else, entertain.
Loved: 21 Savage is still free and still doing his thing.

In the last twelve months, 21 Savage has been through hell and back, but he’s still here. The Atlanta artist ended 2018 with another chart topping album. It is what many to believe to be his best and most complete project. Moreover, it includes what many believe to be his best and most meaningful record, “A Lot” featuring J. Cole. Just a few months later, he found himself in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). While many made jokes on Twitter, the Atlanta native found himself fighting for his freedom. Upon his release, 21 Savage began investing in financial literacy programs and advocating for the immigration rights of young children. After all of that, he’s still here and performing in front of large festival crowds. He appeared at The Roots Picnic and this weekend, he performed in front one of the largest audiences in his career. There is nowhere to go, but up for someone who has overcome so much.
