MTV News followed Future on his previous Purple Reign tour and produced this new documentary Future’s Reign that documents his meteoric rise and work ethic. The Freebandz general talks about balancing success with happiness, not being able to be there for his family at times because of his schedule, and his kids and how they motivate him.
Kicking off their High Road Tour in West Palm Beach, Florida, Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg had the venue in the clouds. Even though the venue was an outdoor amphitheater, somehow they managed to form the thickest cloud of Mary Jane the city has seen. LA’s very own Casey Veggies opened up the show around 6:30pm where I unfortunately missed his set. I’ve seen Casey open up for Big Sean and he’s def a dope act you’ll want to arrive early for. The beautiful Twenty88 singer, Jhene Aiko followed up by performing her joints off of her debut album Souled Out and some classics off her mixtapes. I’ve been supporting her since she was discovered by Chris Stokes during the B2K phase and I swear she knows it. Everyone was too high to stand up and scream the words to her songs but I wasn’t. She made a point to point me out and say whats up which therefore made it even more live for me to continue screaming her lyrics about f*ck boys and the high life. I LOST MY MIND.
I had to have been the only person who knew every word and ad-lib (I’m the biggest Sean fan ever FYI). Kevin Gates went on maybe around 8:30pm and unfortunately I don’t follow with his music as much, besides for the joints I’ve heard on the radio. What I couldn’t get over was the fact he came out in socks and slides like a real G would. Snoop Dogg opened up the collaborative headlining stage coming out to nothing but a cloud of smoke while smoking and going right into his classic hits. Once he performed one song he’d walk off, where Wiz would have his grand entrance and get into “Bake Sale”. He performed maybe 2-3 songs then Snoop would come back out and so forth. It reminded me a lot of when Jay-Z and Kanye West went on the Watch The Throne tour where it was constant switch offs and collaborations together. The highlight however was the portion of the show where they actually had a stage set up where the grassy field was where fans probably only paid 20-40$ to cram up in. Oh, and the enormous sized RAW paper joint they threw in the crowd so that everyone could “hit what we smoking”. “Puff and Pass” was more of a “Grab and Throw” game. Nonetheless, it was an awesome show and everyone enjoyed themselves. Check out our little recap and be sure to catch them when they’re in your city!
