Everything was fine at first, but the technical difficulties eventually got so bad that Ye hurled his mic out of frustration when performing “Jail 2” with Marilyn Manson and DaBaby. It seems his vocals were cutting out, he was having problems with his in-ear, and he was supposed to play the song live but couldn’t, per TMZ. According to the outlet, the issues were worse via livestream than at the show.
Fans became upset because Yeezy wasn’t rapping along to his single “Hurricane” right before he tried to perform “Jail Pt. 2.” His guests ran into issues as well, when Ye, Fivio Foreign, and Playboi Carti did “Off the Grid,” with Fivio’s mic not synced to the music.
Fans saw a number of heavy-hitters in addition to DaBaby, Manson, Fivio, and Carti, with Jack Harlow, Migos, Pusha T, Alicia Keys, and the Game in the show, plus Elon Musk in the crowd.
