FutureStarrPharrell's Something in the Water Festival: Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and More Take the Stage Despite Bad Weather
Pharrell Williams' Something in the Water Festival in Virginia this weekend did not let rain dampen its party-going spirits! Check out some of the acts that performed here. Diddy, Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes are three of the biggest names in rap. Each artist offers something truly original. 1. Lil Wayne Lil Wayne is an iconic rapper and R&B singer-songwriter, having begun his career with the Hot Boys before emerging as an individual artist during the mid 2000s. Additionally, he collaborates on writing projects with other musicians, giving him an influential position within music. His most well-known works include chart-topping singles like "Rhymes Galore," "Dangerous," and the iconic "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See". Additionally, Tha Big Bang won three Grammys including album of the year for 2007. After taking time away from music, Busta Rhymes is back with new albums and performances that promise to cement his status as an international star. Most recently he teamed up with comedy icon Dave Chappelle for "Dave And Busta's," as well as plans for an extensive tour in 2022. He's also an accomplished songwriter and record producer, having collaborated with artists like Kanye West, Kaytranada, and Rihanna. Additionally, he donates money to several charitable causes like United Way Miami and homeless shelters across Florida. Busta Rhymes may not be renowned as other rappers, but he remains one of the key figures in Hip Hop history. His albums The Coming and When Disaster Strikes have long been considered some of the finest works ever released in rap music. When the rapper released his debut LP, The Coming, in March 1996 it proved an instantaneous hit and cemented him as one of the most beloved rap stars ever. Propelled by its lead single "Woo Hah!" as well as other top hits. Since then, he's produced several critically-acclaimed projects, and received nominations at both the 2000 Grammys (Best New Artist) and this years ceremony (God Did). His latest release God Did is up for best rap album honors. Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes took to the stage last night despite inclement weather in Vi, providing a spectacular performance that brought together songs from each career with classic R&B and pop tunes, giving audiences the feeling that they were at a nightclub while performing hits from their respective careers. 2. Busta Rhymes Busta Rhymes may be one of the hottest rappers around, but his career has not been without its share of misfortunes - from falling down stairs and zipline accidents, to being injured by ziplines, as well as having his forehead injured in an incident with them. Busta Rhymes first gained notoriety as part of the Long Island hip-hop crew Leaders of the New School, known for their lyricism and comedic delivery. Recording began in 1989; by 1991 they had released their debut album A Future Without a Past through Elektra Records. The album was an astounding success, with its lead single, "Gimme Some More," rising to the top of charts both in the US and UK. Additionally, several hit remixes by artists like Mariah Carey and Spliff Starr emerged. Busta Rhymes' music career may have dwindled over time, yet he continues to create great work. In 2010, he released E.L.E. 2, inspired by films depicting earth's impending doom. He has had many hits featuring Missy Elliott, P. Diddy and others as featured artists. Busta Rhymes has produced albums for numerous hip-hop artists besides himself, such as A Tribe Called Quest, Aaliyah and Mary J. Blige among many others. Busta Rhymes may not have achieved as much fame, but he still enjoys a large following and loyal following among fans. A strong vocalist with great rhythmic control. So he is able to produce music that is both catchy and thoughtfully-composed, producing for Nicki Minaj and Drake among others. Busta Rhymes stands out as one of the most engaging rappers when it comes to performances, frequently engaging with his audience through dancing and singing. As part of his latest performance, Pharrell took to the stage at Virginia Beach this weekend for Pharrell's Something in the Water festival - designed to honor and showcase Virginia Beach's vibrant community as well as celebrate its rich cultural history - featuring activations, programming and on-site activities for attendees as well as non ticket holders alike. 3. Pharrell Pharrell Williams has been part of music for nearly two decades, performing and touring worldwide as both performer and producer. He has collaborated with renowned artists like Britney Spears, Usher, Snoop Dogg and Timbaland. On Friday afternoon despite inclement weather conditions, there were still crowds at Pharrell Williams' Something in the Water music festival in downtown D.C. This three-day festival kicked off on Independence Avenue in Washington D.C. with performers representing every genre of music imaginable, such as Ozuna, Anderson.Paak and Usher. Fans enjoyed their performances despite D.C.'s scorching heat waves! While some attendees grumbled about the heat, others saw it as an unforgettable experience. Re-entry was permitted, allowing people to return between music performances from their favorite musicians to shop or check out vendor or art installations. Fans saw something entirely different at last year's festival, held in Virginia Beach: attendees there could enjoy their concert from the comfort of an oceanfront setting rather than from inside a concrete city park. One reason Virginia Beach's Something in the Water festival was so beloved was because concertgoers could hear artists they wouldn't otherwise hear of. Another factor was that much of the music at the festival was performed by local musicians. Finding quality rap acts is hard enough in any area; rarely would one find an R&B artist performing at such an event! Pharrell decided to move his festival from Virginia Beach to Washington D.C. this year due to the city's purported "toxic energy." Some questioned what might become of this event in terms of attendance and sustainability. Pharrell Williams wanted the festival to become a global phenomenon. Music can change lives. 4. Lil Baby Pharrell Williams' Something in the Water Festival in Virginia this weekend didn't let rain and gusty winds dampen its spirit one bit despite unpredictable conditions, with attendees still experiencing a full roster of artists that made this unforgettable weekend experience. The Virginia Beach festival celebrated music's diverse culture while uniting communities and raising awareness on different issues. Although not an effortless endeavor, festival organizers showed great resilience through all the delays and weather concerns that arised. By Friday's showtime when main performers took the stage it became evident that everything was proceeding smoothly. Burna Boy stole the show during a performance this past weekend featuring artists like Drake, Busta Rhymes, and 21 Savage - however Burna Boy truly shined as she showed her signature style to usher in 2017. He may have joined the bill later than anticipated, but his set certainly made up for any delays. He tore through songs like "For My Hand," "Location," and "On The Low," all now classic summer hits. After his performance, he gave an emotional shoutout and thanked his audience for coming out to see him. Additionally, he shared an inspirational message encouraging them all to keep their dreams alive while remaining true to themselves. At the same time, he was joined onstage by other rappers Roc Marciano and Bryson Tiller who joined in rapping together with him. Puff played a song featuring Kim Porter, his late partner who passed away in 2014. It was an emotive moment as both Puff and his audience shared memories of Kim Porter together. The rappers also performed "I'll Be Missing You," an original track they released under Diddy's Young Money label. Busta Rhymes has long been an icon in rap music, yet his career has not always been without turmoil. Starting off as part of Long Island hip-hop collective Leaders of the New School and later signing with Clive Davis-founded J Records, his path was anything but smooth. In 2002, he released his sixth studio album It Ain't Safe No More to moderate success and included an unusual collaboration with Mariah Carey called "I Know What You Want." Busta Rhymes has had an illustrious career, and his latest album Year of the Dragon will be released on November 2. A popular rapper, Busta has had many songs featured on them such as Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now" and Lil Wayne's "Make It Clap."
