The four-hour concert featured 30 lesser-known as well as famous rappers, and 500 dancers who on April 10 performed in front of 10,000 people at the Sài Gòn Exhibition and Convention Center in HCM City’s District 7.
Opening the show was the song Chúng Ta Là Người Chiến Thắng (We Are the Champions) performed by six rappers RIC, Tez, Lor, Đạt Dope, Tony D and Yuno Bigboi.
The concert included performances of contestants from Rap Việt, a reality TV music show based on a Thai show called The Rapper, like TLinh, Lăng LD, Gonzo, Thành Draw, Ricky Star and MCK.
It featured Rap Việt winner Dế Choắt with Phiêu Lưu Ký (The Adventure) and Chú Bé Loắt Choắt (Naughty Boy), and the runner-up GDucky with Đôi Mắt (The Eyes) and Tiền Nhiều Để Làm Gì (What Would You Do If Have a Lot of Money).
The concert’s highlights are performances from seven big names in the Vietnamese underground music scene, including Rap Việt coaches Binz, Wowy, Karik, Suboi, judges Rhymastic and JustaTee, and music director Toulivers.
