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.

New Orleans rapper Young Greatness is attaining a lot of hype in the rap world with the success of his breakout single ‘Moolah’. And only helping his come up, which he has built online and on the radio, Young Greatness has recruited two huge names for ‘Moolah’s’ official remix, with Lil Wayne and Yo Gotti. NOLA and Memphis team up on this one and it definitely works.
A previous University of Miami recruit, where Young Greatness was on track to play football, the rapper left school after the passing of his father. After he left school and returned to the Seventh Ward projects, and later getting locked up, this artist has shifted his talents from football and hustling to rapping, and it couldn’t be going any better. Young Greatness has some huge co-signs, his new remix is bound to blow up, and he is one of the most exciting rappers to come out of Louisiana in quite some time.
Rappers G-Eazy and Logic both killed it with their huge headlining tours to kick off 2016. G-Eazy’s “When It’s Dark Out Tour” was his biggest one yet, where the Bay Area rapper moved up from theaters to sold-out arena. Logic’s “The Incredible World Tour” was huge in its own right too, and he brought Dizzy Wright and DJ Rhetoric along for the ride.
Now the two have teamed up for “The Endless Summer Tour”, and they are bringing YG & Yo Gotti with them this summer. The tour will kick off June 28th in Dallas, TX and will hit stops in Phoenix, California, St. Louis, Nashville and many more, until the tour concludes July 26th in Brooklyn. Tickets for this mega event go on sale this Friday at LiveNation.com so don’t miss out!

Last night, rapper Yo Gotti brought his secret tour of 8 shows, 8 cities and only 8 dollars, “The 8 For 8 Tour”, to The Metro in Chicago, IL. Now over half way through his tour, which kicked off December 1st in New York, Gotti will hit stops in St. Louis, Oakland, and his hometown crowd in Memphis before the tour concludes. Last night though, it was all about the Windy City! Gotti put everything into his show last night, performing a number of records from his CM8: Any Hood America project, the newest installment of his Cocaine Muzik mixtape series, as well as a number of Yo Gotti’s fan favorites, including his 2014 hit ‘Errrbody’.
For a price of only $8 per ticket, it is more than an understatement to say everyone at The Metro got their money’s worth, so we sent our photographer Ariana LaBarrie to capture some of the show’s best moments.
