When the Smoker's Club Tour first rolled through New York last October, Curren$y had dropped the first of his two breakthrough Pilot Talk albums; Big K.R.I.T. was riding the blog hype generated by his candy-painted, country rap K.R.I.T. Wuz Here mixtape (but had recently been booed off the stage at the then-Nokia Theatre); and Method Man was off touring with what remained of the Wu. In the year since, Curren$y and K.R.I.T. have both gained more fans and come into their own on new releases, and Method Man, well, he'll always be Method Man. Smoke DZA and Fiend join for a night of strong rapping and stronger weed.
