The Smoker's Club Tour Loads Hip-Hop and Herb Into White Room October 28
Funk music and a sweet, sticky spliff have been the perfect pair ever since James Brown and Bootsy Collins hotboxed a studio back in '70. A couple of decades later, there was Dre, Snoop, and The Chronic. And this Friday, the marriage of music and marijuana will go next level with the Smoker's Club Tour at White Room.
Sponsored by international bud bible High Times as well as Cinematic Music Group and Jets International, this touring festival of beats and bud features three spitting fans of superior consciousness and skinny cigarettes: Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, and Curren$y.
Straight out of Mississippi, K.R.I.T. is the 24-year-old rookie king of keeping it realer than real. Bold and basic, the big man's not afraid of calling out the rap industry's shallowness and stupidity on tracks like "Children of the World" before balling hard on "Country Shit."
Meanwhile, Harlem's Smoke DZA and New Orleans's Curren$y (who, coincidentally, both make cameos on K.R.I.T.'s new self-released LP) also flip off gangsta fantasies, steering instead toward hard fact, street truth, and untainted kush.
In short, the trio lends credence to the Smoker's Club guarantee that the beats will be deep and the smoke won't sting.
The Smoker's Club Tour featuring . Friday, October 29. White Room, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors open at 9 p.m. and tickets cost $20 via zvents.com. Ages 18 and up. Call 305-995-5050 or visit whiteroommiami.com.
