Last night ladies and gentlemen I have to say I was quite impressed with the very tatlented Nicki Minaj after she sheared the stage for more than have the night with some of Atlanta’s top musicians.

 Nicki gave honor to all the people who helped her when she first movied to the ATL  and got her career popping, The singer honored people like singer and my homie Monica praising her, and thanking her for giving her someone to look up to…

This had to be one of the best concert’s I have ever gone too … P.S. She said she will be back!!! Next time with Gucci !!! Much much love… The good fokes over at the AJC got all the play by play  details and I got the photos…

“AJC” Reports:

“Instead of being called the “Pink Friday” tour, Nicki Minaj’s triumphant return to Atlanta Sunday night could have been dubbed “The Tour Stop Featuring Every Atlanta Rapper Except Ludacris…And Even A Couple of R&B Stars.”

The first chunk of her joyful 100-minute show at the Fox Theatre breezed along from the insanely catchy “Beez in the Trap” (with openers 2 Chainz) to Big Sean’s raw club thumper “Dance” to “Right By My Side,” a straight-up power ballad that proves Minaj knows her way around a melody as well as a rhyme.

But then the parade started. Quietly, at first, with a quick appearance by Young Jeezy, who rattled off “Supa Freak” to a sold-out crowd already amped by Minaj’s can’t-turn-away stage presence.

Then, halfway through the concert, Minaj started to talk about a vocalist who influenced her from her earliest days of singing in her bedroom and out strolled Monica to deliver “Why I Love You So Much” (she sounded great except on those extremely over modulated long-held notes).Minaj had barely returned to the stage when Bobby V slid out from the wings, leading Minaj to state, “I’m gonna go change,” and scurry offstage for her fifth or sixth costume swap while Bobby crooned “Slow Down.”

When Minaj returned in a straight black wig, pink tights over black hot pants and a cute cap, she had barely launched into her mixtape medley, told the crowd how Atlanta is one of her second homes and gave a shout out to Gucci Mane for all of his help with her career when another guest was added to the list – Waka Flocka Flame.

Shaking his dreadlocks, the muscular rapper sent the crowd into another frenzy with “Round of Applause” and astutely noted to Minaj, “We’ve come a long way from roaches to Rolexes.” READ MORE

T.I. is not short on material for his upcoming album. The rapper recently told DJ Sense of Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 that he has 125 songs in the can for “Trouble Man,” the title of his eighth studio album. T.I. says he’s just sitting on the material right now. “Trouble Man” is due to be released on September 4th. That’s the day after the second season premiere of his VH1 reality series “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.” Do you remember 3 years ago when I attended T.I.unforgettable performance at club Crucial in Atlanta. After doing his Farewell Tour.

 The club was jammed packed full of people that came to show their love. T.I. talked to the crowd to let everyone know “no matter how much people might hate on him he will always keep his head up cause he’s the King B-Tch” … And he wouldn’t say it if he didn’t mean it”. Next thing I know Tip was talking about how people need to forgive and let things go don’t hold on to anything, and then Shawty Lo walked out on to the stage and extended his hand to the rapper. Both men embraced and shook hands as the audience was like what the hell… LOL

Just yesterday we heard the song.  Now check out the video for Trey Songz new single “2 Reasons” which features Atlanta’s own T.I. The video is a club scene with plenty of sexy women and a great big bottle of Grey Goose!  Check it out!  Trey Songz new album Chapter V is set for an August 21 release date. READ MORE
