Pharrell’s inaugural Something In The Water Festival had a rough day on Friday as the festival was forced to cancel its opening day before it even began as heavy rain, winds and lighting made for especially dangerous conditions. That all changed on Saturday as the sun came out and an amazing lineup of artists blessed the stage to put on a show that Virginia Beach would not soon forget.
With performances from Travis Scott, SZA, ASAP Ferg and a huge set from Pharrell with guest appearances by Jay Z, Diddy, Tyler The Creator, Usher, Missy Elliott and Snoop Dogg (to name a few), Something In The Water made up for Friday’s rain cancellation and then some!
Check out our photos from Saturday’s lineup at Something In The Water below.

Jay Z’s Made In America festival is Hov’s favorite music festival, and although he admits he is bias, he gave tens of thousands of fans in Philadelphia reason for MIA to be their favorite as well. Performing cuts from his new 4:44 album, as well as his biggest hits and a surprise appearance from Damian Marley, and then delivering an encore performance of B-sides to a complete different stage, Jay Z delivered for the City of Brotherly Love.
Jay Z is a legend, and he only helped cement that status last night. While not necessarily known for his live performances, it’s a shame, because Jay Z is a master of putting on a great show.
Check out our photos from last night’s performance below, and peep the dates for Jay Z’s forthcoming 4:44 Tour at LiveNation.com.
Jay-Z is taking his highly successful and equally controversial 4:44 album on the road for a massive 31-date tour across the U.S. and Canada.
After a headlining performance at his Made In America music festival, Hov will kick off his tour October 27th in Anaheim, CA and will make stops in Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Nashville and many more, until the 4:44 Tour comes to an end on December 21st at The Forum in Los Angeles.
Tickets for the forthcoming tour will go on sale July 14th, but if you really want to make sure you get your tickets before they are all gone, users for Jay’s streaming service, Tidal, will have an opportunity to purchase their tickets starting today.
Did Future just response to Jay-Z’s subliminals on his 4:44 opener, ‘Kill Jay Z’? Fans are saying yes as Future sent out a Snapchat that answers back to Hov.
“I don’t even know what you wouldve done. In the “future”, other n****s playin’ football with your son.” – Jay-Z on ‘Kill Jay Z’
While Jay was clearly referring to Future’s son and Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, who is now married to Future’s ex and baby-mama, Ciara, Future decided to respond with a fat stack of hundreds. Taking to Snapchat, Future holds a stack of 100 dollar bills to his ear, with the caption reading, “U ain’t got the juice like dat. MOOD.”
Fans interpreted this caption as a reference to Jay-Z’s 4:44 track, ‘The Story of O.J.’ where Jay raps “Y’all on the gram holdin’ money to your ear, there’s a disconnect, we don’t call that money over here.”
Although Future was recently listed on Jay-Z’s list of rappers who inspire him, Future wasn’t going to let Jay-Z’s diss go unanswered.
Check out Future’s Snapchat response to Jay below.

Frank Ocean surprised fans with his new track ‘Biking’ this past weekend. Recruiting longtime friend and collaborator, Odd Future’s Tyler The Creator, as well as rap legend Jay-Z, ‘Biking’ is a dream collaboration.
Ocean debuted the new song this past weekend on Beats 1 Radio, but fans can purchase the track now. Each artist contributes greatly to the track and it’s another great example of why Tyler and Frank need to continue to hop on tracks together, as the Odd Future duo makes for a perfect team.
