There was no questioning who’s the boss — make that bawse — at the Hollywood American Legion in Los Angeles Thursday night (June 7). Rick Ross a/k/a Teflon Don a/k/a Ricky Rozay headlined the inaugural show of the new concert series uncapped presented by vitaminwater and FADER. (And lucky for you, we’ve partnered with vitaminwater and FADER to deliver exclusive coverage of the event!) Dripping in diamonds, the Maybach Music Group emcee dominated the stage — even when he was sharing it with super surprise guests Omarion and French Montana.
Ross was the main event in the three-course show, which kicked off with a haunting set by opera singer turned pixie indie siren, Zola Jesus. Backed by strings and live drums, Zola at one point took off into the audience, singing her second to last song from the seats. She was followed by The-Dream, who, in his light-up Nike McFlys, mixed old tracks with new ones. After pouring his heart out on “Used To Be” — the 1977 cut about his ex-wife Christina Milian — he told the crowd, “It took me two years to make music we can f*ck to again,” then launched into his new panty-dropper “Roc.”
