Proudest father/son moment

Pell

Pell is from New Orleans, not Chicago, but he still seemed to have plenty of family to cheer him on from the VIP section of the BMI stage. Far away the young rapper’s biggest fan of the day was his own father, who jammed out by the photo pit for the whole set, beaming. Pell showed off a lot of hometown pride on Saturday, fitting in tracks by fellow NOLA artists Lil Wayne and Juvenile between his own songs. One fan stage-dived during Juvenile’s “Slow Motion”, something that had apparently never happened at a Pell show before: “There’s a first time for everything,” he said. Mr. Pellerin loved it; even when the audience went wild when G-Eazy came out for “Got It Like That”, Dad was the happiest dude in the crowd. –Sasha Geffen
