DJ Drama x Meek Mill Dream Chasers Tour ATL (Recap & Photos)

The one thing I’ve learned about Atlanta since moving out here, is that at live shows ATL crowd are not easily won over! However, on Tuesday night when DJ Drama brought Meek Mill and The Dream Chasers tour home to Georgia there was no question the audience at the Tabernacle was behind them 100%.

The night was kicked off by Cali’s own Casie Veggies and crew. Then greeted by an up roaring crowd, Drama played a set for his hometown that solidified his spot as one of the top DJ’s out right now.

Finally it was time for MMG headliner Meek Mill to take the stage. From the front row to the back of the house, every word to his songs were being yelled out to Meek with as much energy as he was giving out to the crowd. From old tracks to fans favorites off Dream Chasers 2, Meek worked the stage and the audience like a veteran performer. The specials guests did not disappoint either, knowing his audience Meek kept his friends Atlanta bred, bringing out Travis Porter, Gucci Mane, and the always entertaining Waka Flocka Flame. To end the night on a high note, Drama and Meek welcomed not only the king of Atlanta but the king of hip hop in the south, T.I.. The Tabernacle exploded when Tip hit the stage, and the night ended with the crow as turnt up as when it started.

The Dream Chasers tour is still going so if it comes to you, I would say this is a show not to miss, Meek and Drama put together one of the better shows i’ve seen in a while. Salute.

DJ Drama Got Atlanta’s Beer & Tacos Turnt Up T.I., Future & A$AP Rocky

DJ Drama brought the house down Wednesday night at 585 North for Atlanta’s ‘Beer & Tacos’ event. Having DJ Drama in the house is enough to get a crowd turnt up, but when TI, Future, A$AP Rocky, DJ Holiday, DJ MLK and Grand Hustle’s D.O.P.E all hit the stage the whole venue was on another level (Luda also made a special appearance in the crowd.) I have never seen an Atlanta crowd this trill…it was definitely a sight to see…and thanks to DLTDJ.com for those of you not in attendance you can see a little of what went down!

Quality Street Music to drop on September 18th!

All 4 members of Black Hippy invade Santos Party House (Video)

Nights like these are what I miss about NYC! None other than NY’s downtown Santos Party House brought out all 4 of the Black Hippy members for the New York fans…and it’s clear they appreciated the phenomenal show Kendrick, Ab Soul, Jay Rock, and School Boy Q put on!

Oh and if you haven’t heard the homie @lowkeyuhtn is hosting SOBs on Thursday June, 21st when Ab-Soul returns to NYC for his solo show (which i’m sure will not be so solo)

An interesting turn of events this evening (no not Mickey Factz doing blow on stage before a chick got naked….that post will be tomorrow morning awaiting a video!) but the Rock The Bells lineup has been released as well as the dates…and it looks like Hov’s new little music festival in Philly this summer will have some competition.

The festival will start at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on August 18 & 19, Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA August 25 & 26 and finally ending at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ on September 1 & 2. You guessed it the same dates that Hov earlier announced his festival to be taking place on….so the question for the East Coast kids….Hov or Rock The Bells?

#FREEBOOSIE- The defense rests in Lil Boosie case already!

 

FREE BOOSIE! (if you didn’t know my stance on the situation I just wanted to throw it out there before I began)

Earlier this week on  the opening statements in Lil Boosie’s trial for the murder began and just 4 days later, the defense rested its case without calling any witnesses. Closing arguments in the case are set to get underway Friday morning. What!!

According to the Advocate, the prosecution announced their intention to rest their case against the Baton Rogue after calling 27 witnesses to the stand. Moments later, the defense team also announced their intention to rest without calling a single witness.

“Based upon the burden of proof lying with the state, the defense rests with the witnesses the state has put on,” said one of Boosie’s lawyers Jason Williams.

The trial will begin tomorrow Friday May 11 with the closing arguments from both sides….I don’t know about you but this makes me nervous!

The 29-year-old rapper faces a first-degree murder charge. Prosecutors contend Hatch hired Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding to kill 35-year-old Terry Boyd, who was shot to death through a window while inside his home in 2009. If convicted, Hatch faces life in prison, he is currently serving an eight-year prison term on drug charges and is being held in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.
