A large contingent of brash rap stars are set to descend on First Avenue for the second edition of the Smokers Club Tour, headlined this time around by Three 6 Mafia member Juicy J (pictured). This current installment of the massive hip-hop tour is called One Hazy Summer, and also features the talents of Harlem MC Smoke DZA, Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$, Fat Trel, Paypa, Cashius Green with Pheo, Short Stop, Corner Boy P, and Shiest Bubz, along with DJ Lee Bannon providing beats throughout the festivities. This show should give local hip-hop fans a true taste of the style and flow of modern rap music from across the States, and should give these young guns a chance to make their own distinct mark on the scene. 18+.
