New year, new location, new lineup, but the one thing that didn’t change is the amazing experience that Rolling Loud provides to fans in Miami. Now held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the world’s premiere rap music festival kicked off it’s amazing 2018 lineup today.
With highly anticipated performances from J. Cole, Lil Uzi Vert, N.E.R.D, Young Thug, Tory Lanez, The Diplomats, Russ and many more, fans had a ton of artists to choose from on Friday. Where else can you see Lil Uzi Vert try to top his viral 2017 performance and hear cuts from J. Cole’s brand new album, KOD?
Harlem’s A$AP Mob got cozy in Milwaukee tonight, as A$AP Rocky and company stormed through The Rave’s Eagles Ballroom for their Too Cozy Tour. Comprised of Rocky, Ferg, Twelvyy, Nast, the late A$AP Yams and many more, the A$AP Mob may be top heavy but talent is still spread throughout the group, especially since A$AP Ferg and Twelvyy have emerged from Rocky’s shadows in the past couple years.
From the very beginning the crowd was turned up, as the Mob performed some of their solo records, collaborations and of course cuts from their newest LP, the Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy. And while some of the emerging A$AP members certainly did their part by rapping some of their stand out verses, it’s to no one’s surprise that A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg stole the show. Blowing fans away with tracks like A$AP Ferg’s ‘Work’ and ‘Plain Jane’ and the Mob’s Cozy Tapes Vol. 1 track ‘Yamborghini High’, the night was an rager with the whole A$AP crew.
With The Rave also hosting a sold-out country concert downstairs in the same venue, there is no way fans at the Luke Combs concert partied like those rapping along to the A$AP Mob. And because of that, there was no better place to be in Milwaukee tonight.

Don’t think just that summer is over that great live music also has to end. As the festivals wrap up and the leaves fall in the Windy City, the concerts move indoors to some of the best venues and arenas in Chicago. And October especially is a great month to catch a concert or two in Chicago, with stars and legends like Katy Perry and Janet Jackson set to visit and artists like Hoodie Allen, Jon Bellion and the A$AP Mob scheduled to tear up the stage with headlining shows of their own.

A$AP Ferg has surprised fans with the release of his newest track, ‘Aw Yea’. Teaming up with the always entertaining, Lil Yachty, who has been a favorite featured artist for many rappers this past year, the A$AP Mob’s track is one of the better collaborations of the summer.
“Diamonds shining in my cartier, Aw Yea! Ferg and Yachty in the lair, Aw Yea!”
Nobody was safe in Chicago last night, as some of the biggest names in rap today ravaged through the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, IL, just minutes outside of the Windy City. Bringing the ATL to Chicago, with headlining performances from Future and the Migos, fans at the Nobody Safe Tour last night also saw supporting sets from artists like A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez and Zoey Dollaz, an impressive lineup from top to bottom.
Kicking things off for the Illinois crowd was Freebandz‘s own Zoey Dollaz, who just last month dropped his new 12-track mixtape which shares a name with the tour, and has features from Future, PnB Rock and more. “The inspiration for the mixtape is just something we got from this upcoming tour,” Dollaz told XXL. Dollaz opening set included performances of his tracks ‘Blow A Check’ and Bad Tings’.
Next up was the A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ferg, who stepped in big time for the tour after rapper Kodak Black was removed from the tour due to his recent legal troubles. And while Kodak Black is certainly one of the more entertaining rappers in 2017, the addition of A$AP Ferg was praised by fans everywhere. Ferg continued to warm up the crowd with a 20-minute set full of songs like ‘Shabba’, ‘Hella Hoes’ and ‘Work’.
Keeping things on a high note, Tory Lanez blessed the crowd with one of his always entertaining performances. Going back-and-forth between his rap songs for the fellas in the crowd and his R&B jams for the ladies of Chicago, and even taking time to dive into the crowd, as they lifted him up to the sky, Tory Lanez killed it and made his case for headlining the Amphitheatre one day.
With energy levels at a high, the Migos were met with screams throughout the crowd as the Atlanta trio began their 75-minute set, performing a number of tracks from their new LP, Culture, as well as some of their fan favorites from throughout the past half-decade. While Quavo, Offset and Takeoff had the audience dabbing and dancing throughout their performance, highlights of their set included their performances of ‘Look At My Dab’ and ‘Bad and Boujee’. Many may argue that it’s just a matter of time before Quavo, who has given solo features to a number of big hits for various artists this past year, goes solo, but don’t expect those predictions to come to life as Migos, as an entire collective, has an unmatched stage presence that leaves audiences wanting more and last night was no exception.
Then, just as you’d think the night couldn’t get anymore wild, Future Hendrix greeted his Chicago fans to close out the night. And when you’re headlining a night supported by the Migos, as he did a few weeks ago at Rolling Loud and now on the Nobody Safe Tour, not only is that high praise but it’s a tough challenge to follow one of the biggest rap groups of the past decade. And last night Future was certainly up for the challenge, and the Dirty Sprite rapper succeeded and then some.
Future kept the crowd engaged with a catalog of his number one hits, B-sides and fan favorites, and when you have two albums from 2017 alone, and 100+ tracks from his mixtapes and albums since 2010, you have plenty of tracks to choose from. The night wouldn’t have been complete though without some must-hear songs, including ‘Too Much Sauce’, ‘Move That Dope’, ‘Mask Off’ and ‘Draco’, just to name a few. And if performances from Zoey Dollaz, A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Migos and 20-tracks from Future weren’t enough, Future returned to the stage after his set for a memorable encore performance. Fans got their money’s worth early in the night, but mega acts in rap like Migos and Future made the night one that Tinley Park won’t forget anytime soon.
