A pre-recorded chant projected from the darkness of the Vogue Theatre’s stage punctuating the pre-show chatter of the crowd at the start of the show, “YG 4Hunnid! YG 4Hunnid!”

Not one to shy away from controversy, the Compton born rapper had no problem publicizing his political stance with the title of his “Fuck Donald Trump Tour” in support of his latest LP, Still Brazy.

Although a few members of his crew couldn’t make it across the Canadian border, YG still performed a high energy set for his Canadian fans close to the end of his four month stint on the road.

Having been in the game for over seven years now, YG truly understands his fans and knows how to bring the best out of them. From his opening track “BPT” to the a capella sing-a-long he did to the last verse of “Who Do You Love,” the crowd was like putty in his hands from start to finish.

At one point close to the end of his performance, he stopped to check the score of the NFL game between the Texans and the Raiders. “Do you guys follow football?” He asked the crowd to which they chanted, “Fuck Donald Trump!” Until he returned back to the performance.

Highlights from the show included his performance of “My Nigga,” “Left Right,” “Hatin,” and “FDT” where the young rapper closed out the show by throwing a paper mache version of Donald Trump into the crowd.
