Party & Bullshit
Words by Ned Simes Photos by Ned Simes August 22, 2021

Missing festivals right now?

Well you might wanna turn away from this page, as Chicago’s Summer Smash has the kind of lineup that rap, trap and hip hop fans dream of. Our photog Ned has somehow escaped the land down under with his trusty camera and stranded himself in the US, meaning he was there to capture ASAP Rocky, Lil Yachty, Swae Lee and more when they took to the stage yesterday. Are we jealous? Yes. But what else can we do but try and live through these powerful pics? Check them out in the gallery above and stay tuned for days two and three…
