After a brief hiatus, Lil Dicky dropped the new music video and single for his forthcoming album. Co-starring/featuring singer Chris Brown, and paying homage to the 2003 Lindsay Lohan film, ‘Freaky Friday’ shows what would happen if Chris Brown and Lil Dicky magically switched bodies.
And if a feature from C. Breezy wasn’t enough, the video/track also features cameos from Kendall Jenner and Ed Sheeran, as well as an appearance from Netflix‘s “American Vandall” star, Jimmy Tatro.
WGCI’s Big Jam returned for another great year of music at the sold-out United Center, bringing the biggest names in rap and R&B to the Windy City to end 2017 in the best way possible.
From Chicago natives like G Herbo and Phor kicking the show off, to heavyweights like Chris Brown and Rick Ross closing things out, and of course a wild and energetic performance from Lil Uzi Vert, fans in Chicago got their money’s worth last night.
Year after year, WGCI not only fills the airwaves with the best names rap has to offer, but they bring the talent directly to Chicago, and last night was evidence of that.

Minutes ago, singer Chris Brown brought the party to Chicago, as Breezy brought “The Party Tour” to the Allstate Arena in Rosement, IL. And while the bill was 50 cents short (as rapper 50 Cent was originally slated to support the tour), Chris Brown still brought some major talent to the Windy City, as rap veteran, Fabolous, and newcomers, Kap G and O.T. Genasis, helped warm up the crowd.
First up for the night was College Park, GA native, Kap G. Representing for all the Mexican-American hip-hop heads in the world, the Atlantic Records artist got the night started right with a couple of his best tracks, including his addictive single ‘Girlfriend’.
Kap G was followed by rapper O.T. Genasis, who continued to keep the gears moving, especially with his hit track, ‘Cut It’, a single that was no stranger to the packed arena. With three supporting acts on the bill, it’s no surprise that Kap G and O.T. Genasis’ sets were short lived, but fans were certainly left wanting more.
With one more supporting performance left on the night, a familiar face from the last couple decades hit the stage. As “F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S” greeted the Chicago crowd, the energy levels throughout the Allstate reached a high. With years of hit singles to choose from, including ‘Can’t Deny It’, ‘Breathe’ and Tamia’s ‘I’m So Into You’, Fabolous may be removed from his biggest years in rap, but you wouldn’t have guessed it from tonight. Fabolous can still get a crowd moving and rapping along word-for-word.
Last, but definitely not least, it was time for the tour’s headliner to bless the stage. And while you either disagree with his off-stage antics or strongly disagree with his off-stage antics, there is no denying that Chris Brown is one of the best entertainers around. Whether its his singing, dancing or anything else, Chris Brown is the definition of talent. And tonight he put that talent on an all-out showcase for his Illinois fans.
Brown started his 90-minute set on a high note with performances of ‘Wrist’, ‘Poppin” and ‘Love More’. With more hits than all the openers before him, it was no surprise that the 20+ song setlist was full of classics and fan favorites. But while a stellar setlist was to be expected, it was everything extra that made the night one that fans will not soon forget.
A huge stage, set to reach to as many fans possible, and Brown’s elaborate acrobatics stole the show and make this tour a standout. While fans across the country should be happy that Brown took his Party Tour to the road, you would have guessed that it was tailored for a long-standing Vegas residency with its exceptional production value. If you’re a big Chris Brown fan, this tour is for you, but if you’re even just a fan of great entertainment, then you won’t want to miss this one as well.
Check out our photos from tonight’s performance below, and be sure to get tickets for one of the remaining dates of the The Party Tour at LiveNation.com.
WGCI’s Big Jam returned this year to the United Center with featured performances of the biggest names in business. The sold out show continued.
Chicago natives came in strive with performances from G-Herbo, Lil Bibby, and Dreezy. The Chicago fans came to represent with an early crowd to support the local talent. G-Herbo and Lil Bibby joined forces sharing the stage starting off Big Jam. Dreezy wasted no time showing love to the hometown crowd. The only female artist on the lineup made sure she dominated her performance.
The strict time schedule was a definite mood killer with sets being cut short, but with so many big names on just one lineup, what else can you do? Without proper goodbyes from the artist though, it created some confusing moments in the energy filled night.
Fan favorite Lil Yatchy added his personal flare to the star-studded event. Hit records like “Night”, “Minnesota”, and “Broccoli” had the sold out crowd wanting more.
Definitely one of the most talked about performance of the evening came from Desiigner. Desiigner from start to finish left Big Jam fans in awe. His adrenaline filled set was a spectacle, you couldn’t look away.
A true crowd pleasure, a.k.a. Mr. Steal Your Girl, Trey Songz had the sold out crowd in a complete frenzy. The roaring was matched with Songz’ charismatic performance. With some speculation to whether or not Songz was going to perform due to an onstage breakdown of stage equipment last week. Songz didn’t disappoint the United Center with his stellar performance.
Co-heading Big Jam was R&B juggernaut Chris Brown. Brown a true showman used every inch of the platform to dance every single of his signature hits. Brown led the United Center in the ultimate dance party. Without skipping a beat Brown didn’t stop giving one second of a showstopper performance.
Young Thug ended the night with some of his crowd favorites. Young Thug’s performance was unfortunately cut short due to his allotted set time. Regardless of the awkward transitions and premature ending sets Big Jam was one big Chicago house party. There wasn’t a better way to close off 2016 then seeing some of the best is hip-hop and R&B.
Last year the 107.5 WGCI Big Jam saw some awesome performances from Kendrick Lamar, Future, Vic Mensa and Twista just to name a few, and this year the Big Jam is returning to the United Center and with a lineup that even rivals last year’s huge artists.
Performing at this year’s Big Jam, which will take place on December 30th at the United Center, will be Chris Brown, Young Thug, Trey Songz, Lil Yachty, Desiigner, G Herbo and Lil Bibby! Needless to say, you will want to get your tickets ASAP, because they will surely go fast.
It’s not technically new but it’s new to us, as a new unheard Rihanna and Chris Brown collaboration has surfaced online. The previously unreleased track from the former lovers is titled ‘Put It Up’, and you can stream it now. We aren’t quite sure when this track was recorded, especially since Breezy and Rihanna have had a long history, but either way the record is hot.
This year, February was jam packed with great releases from a variety of artists. Some came to us as a surprise, others beating expectations, and some just simply getting it right. Check out some of the best releases the month of February had to offer.
The year 2010 was a big year for hip-hop. Nicki Minaj cemented her place with Pink Friday, Wiz Khalifa dropped the stoner bible with Kush and OJ and Kanye West graced us with one of the greatest albums of all time, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. There was also a collaborative effort by two heavy-hitters that was being played in clubs and bedrooms everywhere. I’m talking, of course, about Chris Brown and Tyga’s mixtape, Fan of a Fan. The mixtape, naturally, was a hit and even landed at #2 on Datpiff.com’s list of “Top Mixtapes of 2010”. It had what you would expect from Chris Brown and Tyga as a tag team duo; songs suited for the bedroom and the rest, meant to be played through the type of speakers you would find in a club. Nothing out of the ordinary, but what set it apart from similar projects was its stellar production, undeniably catchy choruses and punchlines that would make Lil Wayne proud.
