Ain’t T.I. on lockdown? No one knows for sure—nor why our young entertainers chronically insist upon taking the blues aesthetic of cuttin’ an’ fussin’ to such postmodern extremes that getting processed by the System is the sole possible outcome. Kinda makes one nostalgic for the era when youngbloods were incarcerated for fomenting revolution. Oh, well—if the King o’ da Souf is on a free pass, consider this gig a must-see last stand before he must inevitably surrender his gutbucket throne. With Maino, and hosts Angie Martinez and DJ Cypha Sounds.
