A$AP Rocky is back! Following a Summer of nerve wrecking headlines and political intervention, ASAP is back on the stage rocking out at REAL Street Fest. Tonight, August 11th marks his first appearance since his release and fans went bananas.
He spared no moment acknowledging his current situation with the crowd and talked about his experience in Sweden:

People that I don’t even f**king know was reaching out. Hip hop never felt so good man.
Cardi B Reveals She's Recording New Music
While Cardi's set was dope at REAL Street Fest, before she hit the stage she was in Big Boy's neighborhood where she revealed that she's working on new music!
She hasn't been in the studio for two months because she wanted to give herself time to rest, but she is completely in the zone now.
Cardi mentions that she's a bit nervous because her first album did so well and she doesn't know how her second album will compare.
Big Sean Gives A Shout To Ex Jhené Aiko
Big Sean performed his brand new single "Single Again." When you hear the lyrics, you automatically think it's about the fact that he's happy to be single once again.
However, that's not exactly the case. As soon as the song was over, he told the crowd it's not about being single again, but in fact to find yourself to make you even better for your next relationship.
Once he finished he speech, he made sure to give a shout out to his ex Jhené Aiko.
Future Closes Out Real Street Fest With Special Guest Performances
Future closed out the very first Real Street Fest with one of the most lit performances to bless eyes. The "Stick Talk" rapper walked out on stage ready to turn up as his entire set was filled with hit after hit including Mask Off, King's Dead, Jumpman, Real Sisters, and more.
"I got love for my brother," Future said as Ty Dolla $ign finished up his guest appearance. Soon after, none other than Meek Mill came back out to stage to perform their latest track, 100 Shooters, produced by Tay Keith.
YBN Cordae Turned Up To 'Kung Fu', Jumped Into the Crowd
One of the best up and coming artists turned Anaheim all the way up Sunday afternoon at the Honda Center.
When YBN Cordae took the stage at our 2019 REAL Street Fest, he performed numerous amount of songs off his hit album 'Lost Boy' which many people could argue was one of the best albums of the year. The 2019 hit album featured songs likeBad Idea,RNP,Have Mercy, We Are Gon Make It featuring another REAL Street Festartist Meek Mill,and others.
Meek Mill Pays Tribute To Nipsey and Alton Sterling
Throughout his performances, he made sure to let the fans know that he was appreciative of the 'Free Meek' movement.
Meek also showed some heavy love to several people throughout his performance. BeforeDreams and Nightmares,he payed a quick tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle then showed a slideshow of men like Alton Sterling, Trayvon Martin, Lil Snoop and others. Meek collaborated with Nipsey in the song 'Victory'' in what would be one of Nipsey's last music videos that he would ever be in.
Megan Thee Stallion Twerking
Forever and always we are jealous of Megan Thee Stallion's knee caps. One could only dream to have her strength and stamina twerking like that. Like the rest of the internet, you probably saw her under the hashtag #bigolefreakchallenge turning up at a gas station.
Her REAL Street Fest performance was no exception as LA watched her get lit to a few of her hits including Cash Shit, Big Ole Freak, and Running Up Freestyle.
BlueFace Says He Just Got His Passport
BlueFace says that he's dreamed of crowds like this being in his hometown and then he gets to relax and go home after instead of hopping on a tour bus or going to a hotel.
He told REAL 92.3's Chuey that he just got his passport so now he gets to explore the world.
With the year coming to an end fast, he hopes that next year and the year after that and the one after that is just as great as his 2019 because he just wants to maintain where he is today.
Hot Girls Took Over
If you didn't know, tis' a hot girl Summer, indeed. The phrase, coined by social media's current fav, Megan Thee Stallion, has taken on a lifestyle of its own. At the end of the day though, it means hot girls “just being you, just having fun. It’s turning up, driving the boat and not giving a damn about what nobody’s saying.”
REAL Street Fest wanted to represent that theme on this weekend and invited some of the hottest girls in the game to hit the stage and rock out.
