T.I., the undisputed King of the South, hits Chicago in promotion of his ninth studio album, Paperwork. The multiplatinum Atlantan has wrangled a hot lineup of opening acts. Compton's YG, maker of one of the top rap LPs of 2014, brings his stark neo-G-funk. DJ Mustard, the beat genius who crafted much of YG's hottest tracks and well as "Fancy," is along for the ride as well. First up is iLoveMakonnen, a Georgia boy like T.I., who has been rocketing up the charts with "Tuesday." Sure, this show is on a Friday, but the joint will set if off regardless.
