Rapper A$AP Rocky performed at Ditch Fridays at the Palms Pool after a memorable step-and-repeat on the arrivals carpet Friday afternoon.
The up-and-coming hip-hop star was all smiles with his blinged-out gold grill and was dressed casually in a T-shirt, an evil-eye-patterned wrap, a backward cap and dark sunglasses.
“I want to party; I can’t wait to see all the ladies,” said A$SAP Rocky, who opened for Rihanna in April at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
A$AP Rocky, with water gun in hand, sprayed fans and posed for photographs en route to the poolside stage. His short set included “Shabba,” “Wild For the Night” and “Problem” with A$AP Bari and A$AP 12vy.
A$AP Rocky jumped side to side throughout his performance, dancing and high-fiving daytime revelers. Afterward, he left his VIP booth and made a full circle around the pool, mingling with fans and refilling his water gun at a water fountain to continue cooling down his fans.
Thanks to Joe Fury of 9 Group for his photo gallery.
