A noticably slimmer Makonnen was the first special guest to hit the stage. "I Don't Sell Molly No More" had the crowd turnt as he rocked a Trizzy airbrushed tee afixed with A-Trak's face.
D.R.A.M.'s energy is incomparable. He commanded the stage with his feel-good vibes and postive energy, serenading the crowd with a rendition of Bootsy Collins' "I'd Rather Be With You," his "Cha Cha" hit and more. It should also be noted that his high-energy dance moves were doing the absolute most, but you've got to love someone enjoying what they're doing.
An up-an-coming producer/DJ hailing from Los Angeles, Falcons is definitely one to watch. Carrying a Patron bottle a.k.a turn up juice, he quickly set up shop on the Day Off stage, giving an impressive 30-minute set that was nothing short of brilliant. Churning out hip-hop, R&B and EDM tunes via Serato, he smoothly transitioned from throwback jams like Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy" to recent bangers like Dej Loaf's "Try Me."
The A$AP Mob member made a special and very much welcomed apperance. Mosh pits were plenty during "Work" and "Shabba." Ferg also spit some dope lines from his upcoming album, that honors his block of Hamilton and A$AP Yams.
When it comes to the DJ/producer, he's a true master of ceremony. Hailed as one of the best DJs to ever touch a turntable, A-Trak proved once again just why he's earned such a title. His 30-minute set was filled with his skilled scratching and beloved mixes of fan favorites.

Post Malone & Bankroll Fresh
The "White Iverson" rapper kept the crowd jamming with his down-tempo bangers. Malone suffered from a tragic fall while two-stepping, but he kept it moving and recovered well. He also brought out rising Atlanta rapper, Bankroll Fresh, to turn up the crowd with "Hot Boy."
A-Trak brought out Brooklyn's very own Fabolous to bless the stage. As expected, the young OG entered with "Lituation" and ended with the much appreciated throwback, "Breathe."
At the peak of nightfall, Brooklyn's Zombies brought their trippy manifesto and Generation Y flow, full of drug lingo and banging beats to the stage. The venue shook from the boisterious trio's energy.
The "S" in Skepta definitely stands for "Shutdown." Though a rising act in the States, the UK rapper's grimy sound is building a solid following and proving to be amongst the next wave of overseas acts to take over the U.S.
Man like @skeptagram just destroyed Brooklyn @graceladoja 🏼 #shutdown #FGDAYOFF A video posted by A-Trak (@atrak) on Sep 7, 2015 at 9:40pm PDT
As the headliner, many were expecting a memorable perfomrance from Meek Mill. However, beyond performing his own hits and a melody of OG Maco's "You Guessed It," Travi$ Scott's "Antidote" and Rae Sremmurd's "No Type," the best moment of his set came in the form of a showstopping poster, literally. Meek stopped his performance to personally address a concertgoer who was waving a Drake poster. The tough Philly rapper used the word "dweeb" to deflect from the negative attention the poster was bringing. Fans took to Instagram and of course, the comment section to add their input on the LOL moment.
