Lil Baby took the stage on night two of the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 18, giving fans an unforgettable performance of all his chart topping records.

The Atlanta rapper kicked off his icy white performance with his infamous verse from Drake's "Wants and Needs", followed by the fan favorite "Drip Too Hard". The crowd got even more live when the Atlanta rapper performed his hit "On Me", accompanied by eight background dancers, who also donned all-white to compliment the frosty set.

Baby dipped in his 2017 bag and gave the audience a dose of nostalgia, performing "My Dawg". But the fun didn't stop there. It wouldn't be a Lil Baby show if fans didn't get to hear his 2020 TikTok anthem, "Woah" -- which he performed alongside a few young TikTok dancers. Lil Baby closed the show with his melancholic hit "Close Friends" followed by a freestyle from his song of the same name.

The Quality Control rapper is currently touring the country with longtime collaborator Lil Durk for The Back Outside Tour, featuring special guest Coi Leray, Rylo Rodriguez and Bankroll Freddie. Baby and Durk will be performing hits off their recent collaborative album, The Voice of the Heroes, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Billie Eilish, Sam Hunt and Coldplay also took the stage on night two of the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Earlier in the day, the Daytime Stage at this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival presented by Samsung featured 24kGoldn, Russell Dickerson, Gabby Barrett, Tate McRae, Conan Gray, Yungblud, All Time Low, Saweetie, The Kid Laroi and Olivia Rodrigo.

If you missed any of the action this weekend, you can relive the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival by tuning in to The CW Network on Saturday, October 2nd and Sunday, October 3rd from 8-10pm ET/PT for a two-night television special.
