MY BIG BABY D.R.A.M EXPERIENCE

dram

By: Jeanice McCord

Opening night for the Big Baby D.R.A.M. Tour at Exit/In and I really didn’t know what to expect. Arriving to Exit/in at a little after seven, I thought I would have seen a line down the street, but it was empty. I mean no line whatsoever for a performance that started within the hour. That never happens in this town. I walked in to what I thought was going to be chaos, but it wasn’t, one Merch rep putting out T-shirts of D.R.A.M’s infamous debut album with his dog, Idnit on the front as well as River Tiber shirts along side. Bartenders getting ready for the rush behind the bar, a tech guy working on the stage lighting that consisted of two keyboards, a drum set, a spin table, and a couple of microphones with huge golden lettered balloons that read “PHO” up above the stage. HD multicolored lights highlighted the congested stage with D.R.A.M.’s debut album titled highlighted. The show was almost ready to go and I had a front line view.

“Pho” the debut album of D.C.’s, Ari Lennox, new First Lady of Dreamville, and the one to watch (believe me she is the millennial Erykah Badu). I was excited, waiting for the flood of people to come in and bring this place to life. I was anxiously waiting to be ravaged by the lyrics and the melodies of hits like “Backseat” and “LaLaLa” that I had been playing on my Spotify for months. Ari drifts onstage after 9 P.M. where she is excited to kick off the tour. Ari embodies a quiet confidence, she walks onstage ready to own it and she didn’t disappoint. Ari opened up to a sold out crowd in a casual green jacket, skinny jeans, and Vans with her wild and natural fro ready for her opening number. Most of the audience sang and swayed to her lyrics. Ari gave us tidbits into her life that influenced some of the songs on her record like “Cold Outside” and “Backseat. Ari introduced us to her band, DJ Komari and keyboardist, Jason accompanied her on hits like “GOAT”, “Cold Outside”, and “Night Drive”. (Side Note: I was slick harassing someone from Dreamville to get an interview but no luck). With “Pho” and “Ariography” under her belt, Ari Lennox will be the one to watch in the future.

Next up was 24-year old, Toronto’s own, River Tiber also known as Tommy Paxton-Beesley with hits like “Acid Wash” and “West”. River Tiber’s ethereal beats resonated with me on some dark and twisted level. He has worked with some artists you may be familiar with like Drake, Ghostface Killah, Dukes and BADBADNOTGOOD. River Tiber and his two other guitarists indie sounds intoxicated the audience with true artistry and musicianship that is as technical as he is visual.

Grammy Award nominee, Shelley Marshaun Massenburg-Smith also known as D.R.A.M. (Does Real Ass Music) lit the stage up with his band and DJ warming up the audience to an anxious Nashville crowd. D.R.A.M has an energy and a smile that is so familiar even child-like that you are automatically taken in by his energy and presence on-stage. D.R.A.M opened up with “Get It Myself” and “Misunderstood”. He moved back and forth onstage with his signature BIG BABY D.R.A.M. logo illuminating on stage in his signature hat and locs shaking to the beat. “Signals” and “Outta Sight” took the audience on a psychedelic journey that you can tell is influenced by Funk artists like George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. D.R.A.M then went on to crowd banger, “Cute” and two of my personal favorites, “Wi-Fi” that features legendary Erykah Badu and “Caretaker” with SZA. He caresses the crowd with “Sweet VA Breeze” giving homage to his hometown of Hampton, Virginia. D.R.A.M and his assistant then begin to shoot out D.R.A.M. money from cash guns into the audience, then flowed right into radio banger, “Cash Machine” which sends the crowd into a frenzy. D.R.A.M. then crooned the audience with hit single, “Cha Cha” that had me ready to Bachata with the guy next to me. D.R.A.M sang “Special” which some folks in the crowd began to slow dance with themselves or with their significant other. D.R.A.M. exited the stage, indulging the audience for more, in which they eagerly agreed. D.R.A.M. beaming ear to ear, came back onstage to sing his final number, “Broccoli” (which features Lil Yachty and is nominated for a Grammy). D.R.A.M. feeding off the energy in this number literally goes into the audience, where he is bombarded with selfies and fans eager to get close to the Virginia native. The crowd is so energetic and feeding off his energy, that D.R.A.M. performs this hit single, “Broccoli” again for a crowd that is literally hanging on to his last word.

All in all, if the Big Baby D.R.A.M. tour is coming to your city, get your ticket, you will thank me later. Check out my snaps and see if the tour is coming to a city near you.
