Zay hit the stage at Coachella Saturday night during one of the more touching moments of the festival,
when the Top Dawg rapper opened his set with a video montage focused on some recent events in his life.
Earlier in the year, video footage leaked of a man—allegedly Rashad—engaging in sexual acts with men,
and while he personally didn’t comment on the video itself during his first performance since,
Zay let others do the talking. The set opened with a video montage of The Game
Joe Budden, Akademiks, and more, discussing the leaked video during podcasts and interviews.
“The purpose of doing that was to embarrass him,” a voice is heard saying in the video.
“However, it backfired. When his video leaked, his streams and everything went up. He’s up on the charts now.”
After the clip, Zay ran through some of his biggest hits, as well as some cuts from the House Is Burning,
Isaiah Rashad Address
as he brought out Doechii, SiR, and other members of his Top Dawg family in the process.
