When a big-budget tour starts somewhere, the talent rarely shows up early just to hang around town. Of course, you can always grant an exception for Miami, a city that every hip-hop and pop star takes every chance to visit. But it was curious when Rick Ross announced he'd be filming a video with Drake some three days before the beginning of the latter's current tour. How did hip-hop/pop's latest great crossover star have so much time to just hang around, ostensibly out of town?
Of course, throughout his tour-opening show Monday night at the Knight Center, there were plenty of the requisite shout-outs to the city's women. There were also the requisite appearances from 305 stars at both his Monday and Tuesday night shows. On Monday that meant DJ Khaled and sometime resident, Cash Money head Birdman; the next night also saw a guest cameo from Rick Ross as well as out-of-towner Bun B.
