Rolling Loud was the first time many of hip-hop's biggest names had played in front of a crowd in more than a year.

Travis Scott, among others, made the experience a memorable one for his fans, as he opened his headline set with an unreleased track called "Escape Plan."

On the song, a loud eagle screech amplifies the drop of rowdy drums as Travis raps, "Twelve figure state plan, that was the escape plan!"

Before the show, La Flame also shared a snippet of a tropical music video for the song, expected to arrive alongside his next album, 'Utopia.' He challenged his fans to memorize the lyrics by the time he performed: "WHO CAN REMEMBER THIS BY TONIGHT."

Young Thug took things a step further. Not only did he preview a brand new anthem, "TikTok," but he announced, "I'm about to put this album out, right? It's called 'Punk.'"

In 2019, Thug briefly discussed 'Punk' with The Fader: "It's music that the world is going to embrace." He also described what the term "punk" means to him saying, "[Punk] means brave, not self-centered, conscious. Very, very neglected, very misunderstood. Very patient, very authentic."

A few days later, the 29-year-old performed "TikTok" with a live band for an NPR Tiny Desk concert where he wore a shirt that, on the back, teased Oct. 15th as the release date for the album.

Lil Uzi joined the fun as well at Rolling Loud, playing a joint from his upcoming release, 'Pink Tape.'

The 26-year-old channeled auto-tuned melodies reminiscent of those heard across early projects, like 'Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World,' as he sang about showering his girl with luxurious items.
