Everyone waited with much anticipation for the supercharged hyped Rapper, 2 Chainz, who was 'accidentally' 20 minutes late!! No prob! He all of a sudden explodes on the stage performing his scene-stealing "Mercy" verse, but only after his DJ had prompted the crowd to rap the entirety of Kanye's part. He went on to perform "Beez in the Trap" minus Nicki Minaj; and dropped "Bandz A Make Her Dance," minus Juicy J and Lil Wayne. Then the elated moment came... when 2 Chainz hit em' hard with his oh-so popular "Birthday Song". A joyous song, for a joyous occasion, at one of the world's most celebrated music festivals!
