Thursday, December 21 marked the last stop of JAY-Z’s #444Tour featuring Vic Mensa. Fresh off an amazing night of 2017’s #CaliChristmas, citizens of Los Angeles found themselves back at The Forum for another concert for the books.

Arriving at venue after the hells of LA traffic, fans were pleased to find a center stage setup — similar to Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour. The arena successfully sold 15,000 tickets out of 17,500. Vic Mensa took the stage with his live band and started his set with “Didn’t I.”

As concert-goers made their way to their assigned seats, they were able to turn up to “U Mad” featuring Kanye West. Soon, Vic took the crowd back to his hometown of Chicago, performing “Memories On 47th St.”

“16 Shots” is another record which sees Vic using his voice to speak out racial injustice and Chicago street violence. “Homewrecker” followed.

“Rollin’ Like A Stoner,” “Down For Some Ignorance,” Wings,” and “The Fire Next Time” were next.

With no warning whatsoever, Vic Mensa proceeds to bring out G-Eazy for another fire performance of “No Limit.”

“We Could Be Free” from The Autobiography closed out Vic’s set on a high note.

9:45pm rolled around and the stage lights up for Hov — literally. The split screens were nothing short of cinematic.

“Kill JAY Z” was the perfect intro, serving as track #1 on 4:44 also.

It wasn’t long before we realized how many hits Jay had in his back pocket. “Run This Town” had the crowd begging for Rihanna to show face.

“Izzo” took us way back.

“I’m a hustler baby!” The nostalgia in “I Just Wanna Love U” is crazy.

Proud moment. Hov shouted out Nipsey Hussle in the building and proceeded to say he’s up next!

And everyone knew the words to “99 Problems.” Everyone.

“Big Pimpin'” is another classic.

The #FreeMeekMill movement came alive during “Ni**as In Paris.

The show concluded with “Encore” and a tribute to Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. RIP to another GOAT in music.
