While riding his gold colored trike across the stage – definitely not the most gangster ride, rapper YG held his drink up to the crowd for a cheers.

“I love the East Coast,” he said. “I fucking love the East Coast.”

The BestCoast Connection matched East Coast rapper A$AP Ferg (New York) and West Coast rapper YG (Compton) Saturday at the Electric Factory. The two rappers first teamed up for “Click Clack” in 2013.

They balanced out each other perfectly. While Ferg’s delivery is more aggressive and on edge, YG is more mellow and vibe-driven. Both artists used their music to share thug tales and self-examination, perfectly harmonized with catchy sounds.

YG performed several tracks from his 2014 release, My Krazy Life, while Ferg performed tracks from his 2013’s Trap Lord.

YG, who performed before Ferg, joined him on stage at the end of the set with their large crew. The show lasted until 12:30am.

Philadelphia’s Tiani Victoria and Scholito opened.
