Better Than: A Wednesday night devoted to making nonstop prank calls in which you pretend to be DJ Khaled.

Wale and Meek Mill.

The proceedings were expertly paced. Rather than trudge through redundant solo sets, Meek Mill and Wale simultaneously performed opening duties, and then began to plug the Bawse in and out in a giant set-length medley of hooks, guest verses, and remixes.

Rick Ross.

When Ricky Rozay made his grand appearance (courtesy of a rising platform flanked by some serious pyrotechnics), it was like Romans getting a glimpse of Caesar. Men raised their mixed drinks and blunts, while ladies shrieked every time the Bawse asked them to.

Speaking of blunts, the Fillmore Miami Beach had clearly beefed up security with regard to the sweet leaf. During rap concerts, the floor in front of the main stage can greatly resemble a Miami version of Cheech and Chong. And last night was no different, aside from a handful of shined flashlights and shouts of "Put it out now!"

DJ Khaled

However, the closer you got to the stage, the thicker the pot smoke grew. Behind the haze, Rick Ross threw his gargantuan frame into thick-tongued poetics that he barked like a rabid dog. DJ Khaled ran out for some guest verses, most notably a full-throated rendition of "All I Do Is Win."
