It was all about Nicki at Power 106’s PowerHouse 2014 at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday night. Following sets from Jennifer Lopez, Trey Songz, and ScHoolboy Q, the head Barb commanded the stage with a stripped-down set that showcased her hip-hop roots.
A sound bite of Denzel Washington from Training Day played before Nicki emerged from the smoke to “Lookin Ass.” Wearing a Chromat cage bra, red Brian Lichtenberg skirt, and Guiseppi Zanotti ambush boots, the sexy rapper continued with “Chi-Raq” and her remix to “Danny Glover.”
When she was asked to perform at PowerHouse, Nicki told the crowd that she wasn’t prepared and wanted to stand out from fellow performers like J.Lo, Trey Songz, and Juicy J.
“I said what can I do? So I said, ‘Fuck it.’ I’ma go back to my mixtape days and come out with a motherfuckin’ DJ,” she said. “‘Cause there’s one thing they can’t do and that’s be the motherfuckin’ queen of hip-hop.”
Surprise guest Soulja Boy joined her for her latest song “Yasss Bish” before Nicki took it back with her biggest hits including “Super Bass,” “Starships,” and “Moment 4 Life.”
