Chicago’s WGCI brought some of the biggest names in rap to the historic United Center on Saturday night for their annual Big Jam.
With amazing headlining performances from Cardi B and Lil Baby, as well as sets from Tory Lanez, Kodak Black, Young Dolph and more, fans certainly got their money’s worth for perhaps the best Big Jam to date.

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?
Drake’s OVO Fest blew fans away for another year in Toronto, this time with Drizzy literally bringing his city to the stage, by creating an amazing replica of Toronto’s CN Tower, which became a meme after the artwork for Drake’s Views album was released.
But in addition to the hours of great music and production, another highlight of the evening included a very unexpected surprise performance. For a very special performance of Drake’s track ‘Controlla’, rapper Tory Lanez joined Drake for an epic live remix. While the two have famously had bad blood in the past, it appears that all is well in the 6.
Check out some fan footage of the performance below.
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.

Last night, Tory Lanez gave a beyond memorable and energetic performance at The Rave for his biggest Milwaukee fans, on his headlining I Told You Tour, named after his debut album which released just months ago. Joined on tour by Atlanta singer-songwriter Jacquees, Kranium and Chicago’s Taylor Bennett, Lanez was in great company and set for a pre-Thanksgiving show that Wisconsin would not soon forget.
And after the three opening performances set the tone for the man of the night, it was time for Tory Lanez to greet the packed crowd. To no surprise, Tory Lanez’s set included a number of performances from his brand new debut LP, a long awaited album that gained Lanez a lot of attention thanks to his breakout single ‘Say It’. And while fans were rapping and singing along to performances of Lanez’s tracks which were record well before ‘Say It”s commercial success, Milwaukee went crazy when Lanez performed his big name singles like ‘Say It’ and ‘Luv’.
Other highlights of the Canadian artist’s performance included his performance of ‘To D.R.E.A.M’, and of course his up-close-and-personal interactions with the audience. Lanez finds a second home in the middle of his crowd, practically crowd surfing and having fans lift him up towards the sky as often as he was on the stage itself. At one point during his performance, Lanez went into the crowd, had fans lift and guide him towards the side, and at that point Lanez had his fans lift him up so he could extend his reach to a light fixture about 15 feet from the ground, Lanez then climbed that fixture and again extended his reach, this time to fans in the second level balcony. The excitement didn’t stop there either, moments later, Lanez hung upside down from the balcony railing, all while rapping throughout. While many artists before have gone into their crowds, Lanez brings it to a whole new level, and it’s just one of the many reasons that his Milwaukee fans got their money’s worth.
See our photo’s from last night’s performance below, and check out the remaining dates on Tory Lanez’s I Told You Tourhere.
