Rapper Lupe Fiasco played host and performed at Ditch Fridays at Palms Pool on Friday afternoon. The setlist of Fiasco, who was dressed casually in a white tank top, camouflage shorts, shades, high tops and an American flag scarf, included “Superstar,” “Out of My Head,” “Battle Scars” and “The Show Goes On.”

During his performance, he paused to look at the crowd of daytime revelers, then focused on one fan: “You are all beautiful people; don’t ever forget that. But you, girl, are fine; the rest of y’all are beautiful.”

He was all smiles as thousands of partygoers chanted his name. “The Show Goes On” was his final song of the afternoon. Thanks to Joe Fury of 9 Group for his photo gallery of the Friday afternoon fun.
