Supported by T.I., 2 Chainz, Hit Boy and G-Eazy, the rap mogul will no doubt perform several tracks from his recent chart-topping album, I Am Not A Human Being II, alongside the likes of breakthrough hit “Go D.J.,” US number one “Lollipop” and several solo versions of his star-studded collaborations.
