Twista Live @Nectar 2/22/18

Big Boi Live @Showbox Market 1/10/18

This was a great show and not only was Big Boi on his game but the guy they had fill in for Andre 3000’s vocals did a perfect job. In fact, no offense to Andre but I couldn’t even tell he was replaced the vocals were so money. They did all the classics and Big …

Nipsey Hussle Live @Showbox Sodo 6/29/18
