Class is in session! Welcome to the No Rules Tour, led by Memphis OG Young Dolph and his cousin-slash-protégé Key Glock. A trap-rap classroom that teaches us how to stay down for the homies, never forget where you came from, ask for forgiveness instead of permission, and above all else, KEEP IT REAL!
Almost a year removed from their 2019 street-certified surprise collaboration Dum & Dummer, a project inundated with gritty punchlines and witty banter over 22 tracks, the two Ten-a-key (Tennessee) rappers enthusiastically embarked on a nationwide tour with a stop here in the DMV recently at The Fillmore Silver Spring.

One dollar bills rained down on the crowd as Lil Baby hit the stage for a sold-out DC crowd recently at The Anthem along with opening act Rod Wave. Baby got the people bouncing from the minute he came out performing the Drake featured “Yes Indeed” followed by other older songs that helped establish him such as “My Dawg” and “Freestyle” while the money fell into the crowd.

How on earth do you express your admiration for an artist who is a global icon?
Maybe like me, you met Madonna when she was quite young and ambitious — and she took her ambition to Manhattan dance halls. At this street level, you fell in love with her, and she grew. And grew. And grew.
Now, Madonna, the best-selling female singer of all time, hasn’t belonged to New York City, or any one place for that matter, for a long time. With Madame X, her 14th studio album, she’s declared her concerns to be worldwide. She is touring that album right now in Philadelphia.

A thug and his/her gun has been synonymous with takeovers and revolutions throughout history. Just notating the pairing, alone, interjects a feeling of unchecked power — a power that adds an air of uncertainty to its presence. “How big can this movement really get?”. “How much will it change everything?”
