Last night, the Powerhouse 2015 concert went down at the Barclays Center in New York City, with one of the most anticipated lineups of the year. Artists on the bill ranged between turn up rappers, as well as some of the more conscious ones, giving a variation to fans from all demographics. The night kicked off swiftly, with Jidenna opening things up with a fancy set, where he already got things rolling by performing his newest hit, “Classic Man.” Shortly after, Omarion came out to continue the crowd warm-up, performing old and newer fan favorites, including his former B2K track, “Bump Bump Bump,” as well as his recent “Post To Be” smash hit. Jhené Aiko was not in the building, but all the ladies did sing her infamous verse to help Omarion out. Finishing up the shorter sets, Jeremih hit the stage, performing hits such as “Birthday Sex,” “Down On You,” and “Don’t Tell Em.” He even brought out surprise guests K Camp, who performed “Lil Bit,” Natalie La Rose, who performed their duet track, “Somebody,” and 2 Milly, who performed his smash hit “Milly Rock.”
Moving into the lengthier sets, Meek Mill was the next performer on the bill, who was met with an extremely hype crowd. The Philly native performed street anthems such as “Levels” and “House Party,” as well as his Nicki Minaj-assisted single, “All Eyes On You,” even though she did not participate while on stage. Meek also performed some of his Rick Ross-assisted singles, leading him to come out to Meek’s last song of his set, “I’m A Boss.” Rozay graced the crowd with a small mini-set all his own, performing fan favorites such as “BMF,” “I’m Not A Star,” and “8 Ball.” He even made sure to show love to his close friend, DJ Khaled, who came out to promote his new album, I Changed A Lot.

Fetty Wap originally tweeted that he wouldn’t make it to Powerhouse, due to the injuries from his motorcycle, but fans were able to catch his comeback performance, as he surprised the crowd and came out. Although he had to sit for his whole set, he did it royalty style, sitting on a throne while he went through all of the fan favorites from “My Way,” “Jugg,” “Again,” and of course, “Trap Queen.” Fetty even managed to stand up at the end of his set, just so he could show how much he appreciated his fans and supporters, making it one of the most sentimental moments of the night. Shortly after Fetty exited the stage, still on his throne, Big Sean was up next, giving an electric set. Coming out to his speedy rap track, “Paradise,” the G.O.O.D. Music rapper continued with his Dark Sky Paradise-infused set, with tracks like “Play No Games,” “All Your Fault,” and “Blessings.” He then closed off his energetic set with “IDFWU,” with the whole crowd screaming out all of the lyrics to the breakup anthem.
The most anticipated set of the night came for Future, who was opened up by DJ Esco. Playing some tracks off his recent What A Time To Be Alive album with Drake, Esco finally brought out Future Hendrix who went right into his biggest songs, “Karate Chop,” “I Thought It Was A Drought,” and more. He then continued on into tons of his biggest tracks off of his album, Dirty Sprite 2, including the summer anthem, “March Madness.” After bringing out Uncle Murda as a special guest to perform “Right Now,” he eventually closed out with his “Jersey” song off of WATTBA. Last, but not least, Kendrick was met with a more decreased crowd, but still kept the energy going with tons of his tracks off of Good Kid, m.A.A.d city. K. Dot closed out the show by performing his two innovative hits, “King Kunta” and “Alright” from his latest album, To Pimp A Butterfly.
