Hip-hop and R&B’s biggest stars came together for Power 99′s Powerhouse 2013 in Philadelphia on Friday. The star-studded concert included performances from Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, K. Michelle, Mario, Ace Hood, Sevyn Streeter, and Philly’s own Meek Mill.
The MMG rapper put on for his hometown by bringing out Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Jadakiss, and French Montana during his headlining set.
Despite his tweet from earlier in the day (“Aye @kendricklamar ima show you who king on this side at powerhouse Friday!”), he shrugged off any beef between him and the Compton MC.
“Me and Kendrick, we cool guys,” Meek told Mina SayWhat backstage. “When I see Kendrick, we smile and laugh about it. No negative stuff.”
Chris Brown ripped the Wells Fargo Center with his hits including “Fine China” and “Love More,” while 2 Chainz turned up with Big Sean for “All Me.”
In addition to burning up the stage, the Atlanta rapper is also cooking up a potential culinary show. “People have approached me. We’ll see,” said 2 Chainz, whose sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II includes a cookbook.
