WIZ KHALIFA, TRINIDAD JAME$, JOEY BADA$$
7:30 p.m. First Security Amphitheatre. $49-$86.

This here is probably one of the hottest hip-hop tours of the summer. Pittsburgh-bred Wiz Khalifa has spent the last several years releasing everything from Euro-flavored pop numbers to sunny singer/songwriter fare to buzzy club bangers and about a dozen other styles, all of it enveloped in a dense-ass cloud of cannabis smoke. I'm very much digging Khalifa's excellent recent collaborative EP with Curren$y. It's constructed around long samples from jazz flutist Bobbi Humphrey's 1975 album "Fancy Dancer," and doesn't sound like much else I've heard.

Trinidad Jame$ is a Trinidadian who resides in Atlanta. He's got a fixation with gold, as evidenced on his single "All Gold Everything" and the fact that he largely wears all gold everything. In a recent interview with pop-savant Nardwuar, Jame$ dished on working at a Waffle House that was next to a strip club: "Porkchop and eggs, that's the stripper meal."

Brooklyn native Joey Bada$$ is young (born 1995) and super ambitious. He's been releasing tracks from his "Summer Knights" mixtape all summer, along with some accompanying videos that function like mini-documentaries. Also on the bill: Berner, Chevy Woods and Smoke DZA.
