INDIO – 2 Chainz performed “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Remix)” with Fall Out Boy at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Saturday.
Rockers Fall Out Boy did not make any announcements or sing any of its other hits and the audience seemed kind of confused with others leaving after their brief appearance onstage.
Nonetheless, the Mojave Tent audience could not hold the crowd for 2 Chainz and many were outside the venue dancing and chanting for the College Park, Georgia hip-hop artist, similar to his performance last Saturday at the festival.
2 Chainz generally just performed songs minus the guests featured on them, which meant he would perform two verses at most and then move to the next song.
It worked with the crowd but was almost embarassing on ASAP Rocky’s “F***** Problems” where he is just on the hook. And that’s all he performed live on Saturday. In the future, he should at least come up with a freestyle or a verse to the song when the guests are not there just to showcase his versatility.
Other songs he performed included his hit at one half of Playaz Circle with Lil Wayne, “Duffle Bag Boy,” which did not include his former partner or Wayne. The crowd went crazy over “Birthday Song” and “No Lie” but he did them without guests of Kanye West and Drake, respectively.
He did perform most of his solo song “I’m Different,” which drew a massive singalong like 2 Chainz’ other songs.
But the end of the set came awkwardly, as 2 Chainz instructed the crowd to say “2013 Coachella. Let me hear you say 2 Chainz!” after his song “No Lie.” After the crowd said the phrase, 2 Chainz simply walked off the stage instead of performing at least one more song which he had time for.
Then the audience took the hint and left as 2 Chainz’s DJ tried to make up for the weird ending with some quick scratching.
