Better Than: Your fave videos of Travi$ Scott in action.

Live, Travi$ Scott is even raunchier than Youtube footage of his concerts would suggest. And this weekend, the 22-year-old Houston rapper had downtown Miami's Grand Central going absolutely bonkers.

"I do not like motherfuckers that sit down!" Scott yelled to the crowd. "I need to see some rage! Let's go!"

Travi$ Scott, at such a young age, already possesses the kind of stage presence that's downright frightening. He commands his fans with such authority. And rage, they did.

Records like "Uptown," "Quintana," and "Animal" have landed him major features with the likes of A$AP Ferg, Toro y Moi, Migos, and T.I., while Scott's production has caught the ear of industry heavyweights. He has been signed by T.I. to Grand Hustle Records, Kanye gave him a producer's spot on the Very G.O.O.D. Beats roster, and Epic Records secured him with a solo artist deal.

So in honor of Scott's stop in SoFla, Miami and Broward County brought out their finest, producing the show's promised "special guests." During his opening DJ set, producer extraordinaire Nuri got the crowd riled up with a series of short performances by the most stellar local rap talent.

Robb Bank$, Denzel Curry, Yung Simmie, Nik SB, IndigoChildRick, SpaceGhostPurrp and others took turns on the mike. Some were more spirited than others, with Bank$ performing a rather tired rendition of "On Me" while IndigoChildRick stole the whole scene with an awesome performance of "Poppin' Da Trunk."
