Lil’ Uzi Vert’s “A Very Uzi Christmas” tour wrapped up on Friday night (Dec. 22), at The Liacouras Center in Uzi’s hometown of Philadelphia, PA. Streamed live on TIDAL, the near two-hour show featured surprise appearances by Nav, A$AP Ferg and Playboi Carti. The loudest screams were saved for Nicki Minaj, and she walked on stage to perform “The Way Life Goes” remix with Uzi for the first-time and Pharrell Williams, who did the Luv Is Rage 2 standout “Neon Guts.”

During an encore, a touching moment occurred as Lil’ Uzi Vert introduced Meek Mill’s son Papi to the sold-out crowd. The kid was given a mic, and he paid tribute to his incarcerated father by performing his “Dreams & Nightmares (Intro).” Watch the full concert here and below via TIDAL.

N.E.R.D took to Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to celebrate the release of their comeback album, No_One Ever Really Dies. In addition to performing “Lemon” and “1000” alongside Chad Hugo and Shay Haley, Pharrell sat down with Jimmy to talk about the “intense beauty” of raising triplets, why he requests a framed picture of Carl Sagan on his rider, and N.E.R.D’s reunion.

“I was just so happy to work with Chad and Shay again,” he said. “I think this whole entire thing, we did with our eyes closed — and not ’cause we’re that good, but because if we had our eyes open, we would have gotten distracted by all the trends that was going on. We made this music with feeling, we wrote it with feeling, the visuals have feeling.”

Loaded at 20 songs, the R&B crooner’s new full-length album is supported by a cast that includes Lil’ Wayne, The-Dream, John Mayer, Future, YG, Skrillex, Tory Lanez and more.

Seein’ things isn’t a good enough excuse, when you are just sitting right there…I know you ain’t just gon’ stare….,” sings Pharrell on the song’s hook. “Bein’ things you never imagined, the possibility’s up in the air…I know you ain’t just gon’ stare.” Wiz Khalifa keeps the braggadocious theme coming, rapping about his expensive taste and wealth towards the song’s end.
