Moving forward, I’m gonna start posting more random backstage footage from interviews, shows, etc. to keep you guys as entertained as possible. I figure if I’m fortunate enough to not only experience, but also capture a moment worth sharing, then I shall do just that.

For starters, here’s a clip of Kendrick Lamar shooting hoops backstage at the “Under the Influence of Music” tour finale in Detroit, featuring cameos from Mac Miller, ScHoolboy Q, and Chiddy Bang, as well as commentary from Jay Rock.

Atlanta was the first city to give into peer pressure, falling Under the Influence of Music Wednesday evening courtesy of tour headliners Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.

After an energetic opening performance from Chevy Woods with special guest and ATL native Lil Scrappy, ScHoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar took the stage to rep for TDE before handing over mic duties to Mac.

Spitting an acapella freestyle for the capacity crowd, the Most Dope MC brought the show to a fevered pitch before Wiz gave everyone the high they had been waiting for.
