The 20 Best Concert Tours of 2015

BY TER STAFF

Best Tours

2015 saw a lot of great concert tours, from J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive Tour with Big Sean, YG and Jeremih to Taylor Swift’s huge 1989 World Tour. Some tours sold out stadiums and arenas, selling out the entire tour before it even begun, and some tours were in small intimate venues, either strategically or because simple supply and demand. Some had stacked lineups top to bottom and some introduced us to a lot of great new artists. Festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella were bigger than ever this year, but that didn’t stop your favorite artists from building up some great shows of their own.

Hit the jump and check out our list of our 20 Favorite Concert Tours of 2015!

Thugger is going on tour! Hitting a number of stops throughout the U.S., Young Thug will be kicking off his fall tour in support of his forthcoming album, Hy!£UN35. The tour will kick off in Mid-September in Huntington, NY and will hit stops in Boston, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, and many more, before it ends in Maryland on November 1st. And if Thugger alone wasn’t worth the price of your ticket, he has also recruited rapper Tory Lanez (who has probably written for one of your favorite rappers) for the tour.

Check out the tour dates, as well as the sick tour poster, below.

Does This 2011 Tweet Out Young Thug as Gay?

BY TER STAFF

Gay, bi, or straight (even in the rap world), it’s all about the music. Frank Ocean’s music can make you catch feelings about a girl that you didn’t even know you liked. Rappers can wear dresses and they can be as straight as they come. But of course, especially after suspicion flare, fans tend to be curious and wonder what their favorite artists are up to when the doors are closed.

Young Thug is one such rapper who is constantly surrounded by gay rumors. And to be fair, a lot of it is his own doing. He admittedly wears little girl dresses (not that all or many gay men do that), and he calls his friends “bae”, “babe” and “hubby”. Despite the signs, that seem almost obviously homosexual to many, Young Thug has insisted he is straight and even said there is “no fruity sh*t going on.” Also, no one loves the ladies quite like Thugger, and he does have a fiance.

But a recent 2011 tweet has surfaced, which makes it hard to imagine that Young Thug is not bi or homosexual. Years ago, well before Rich Gang Cash Money rapper was famous and years before the success of his breakout 2014 hit ‘Stoner’, he replied to “@LilTony_Mdc” on Twitter with “god dam u sexy kuz.” While only Thugger could explain what the context was, the proof may be in the pudding on this one.

Gay or straight, no one makes a hook like Thugger. And if the rapper is gay and decides to come out publically, that will certainly be a great day for hip-hop. Check out the tweet below, which has not yet been deleted (and a screenshot of the tweet, in case it does get deleted).

Album Review: Barter 6 | Young Thug

Barter 6
BY DAN GARCIA 

The similarities between rappers Young Thug and Lil Wayne are uncanny. Not only have I found myself asking “Wait, is this Weezy or Thugger?” during a song (see Travis Scott’s ‘Mamacita’), but the two both had their careers launched by their strong relationships with Cash Money Records and it’s co-founder Birdman. Also, both rappers are a little “odd” (for lack of better words), and while Lil Wayne cemented his legacy with Tha Carter albums, Birdman’s plan was for Young Thug to take the torch from Wayne (without Lil Wayne’s consent) and record the next series of Carter albums. Somewhere along the line though, perhaps because of the estranged (and currently litigated) relationship between Lil Wayne and Cash Money/Birdman, the plan changed and instead of releasing an official Carter album, Birdman’s new protégé has released the similarly titled Barter 6 project (which is actually a mixtape and not Young Thug’s debut LP).

Lollapalooza just revealed its 2015 lineup, and this year Chicago’s top music festival will feature headlining performances from Paul McCartney, Metallica, and Florence + the Machine. Festival goers can also see sets from Sam Smith, Bassnectar, The Weeknd, Alt-J, Raury, Travis Scott, Young Thug, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator and more! Although the lineup is low on top rap headliners, this year’s lineup certainly competes with 2014’s lineup, which included Outkast, Eminem, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Chance the Rapper and more.

This year Lollapalooza runs from July 31st to August 2nd, downtown at Grand Park. You definitely will not want to miss out on Lollapalooza this year and stay tuned for Lolla’s Aftershow schedule (which should release later this summer).

Check out Lollapalooza.com for more information and peep the lineup below.
