A$AP Mob took over the sunshine state as the collective performed at Miami’s Grand Central last night. A$AP Rocky didn’t dissapoint, performing cuts off his standout LIVE.LOVE.A$AP mixtape. That wasn’t it, as fans got the first listen to a new song Rocky recorded while in Florida. The audio isn’t the best but you do get somewhat of an idea.

Last night, 50 Cent and XXL took over Webstar Hall in New York City. In support of the mag’s multiple Fiddy covers, G-Unit’s head honcho put on what looks like one hell of a show. I haven’t seen 50 perform a full set in over a year so I’m actually kinda tight I missed this. His Big 10 mixtape really makes me miss the G-Unit mixtape days. (Props RealTalkNY)
