After singer Frank Ocean dropped out of his headline slot, Kanye West stepped up to the plate to perform during the FYF Fest at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena and Exposition Park.
Fans who had hoped to see Frank Ocean WERE NOT disappointed by the replacement. Why? Well….during his set, Kanye brought out Rihanna for two songs “All of the Lights” and “FourFiveSeconds.” Let’s just say the fans we’re ecstatic!
