The Coors Light Soundtrack Refresh tour featuring DJ Dummy, DJ Mustard, and NY Rapper Fabolous; shut down Charlotte, North Carolina, when the tour made its stop in the 704 area code on Sept. 30 at the Fillmore Charlotte.
Anticipation filled the air as the diverse crowd stood in line waiting for doors to open. At the start of the show fans had the opportunity to sip on Coors Light and vibe to the mixes of DJ Nice, who set the tone by mixing the hottest hip-hop tracks out during his set in the DJ Battle.
Screams of excitement quickly echoed in unison when special guest Pastor Troy gave a surprise performance of his crowd pleasing hit “No Mo Play in G.A.”
Opening act DJ Dummy, DJ to Rapper J Cole as well as many other artists killed the stage by bringing together old and new Hip Hop tracks. His set included mixes of various songs such as Fetty Wap’s current classic “My Way” and Drag On’s “Down Bottom”. However DJ Dummy didn’t stop there he also took it back with tracks like Juvenile’s hit “Ha.”
During DJ’s Dummy’s set the concert quickly turned into a hip-hop wonderland as artificial snow fell from the ceiling, covering the hyped crowd as the sounds of OT Genesis’s turn up anthem “Coco” thumped through the speakers.
By the time West Coast DJ, DJ Mustard hit the stage, all the fans swayed up and down with their hands in the air to greet the DJ. Artificial snow and fog continued to blow from all directions enticing the crowd to get loose as DJ Mustard ripped the stage with his creative set features & unique West Coast style.
DJ Mustard’s set included some of his produced chart toppers that we all grew to love such as Tyga’s “Rack City”; 2 Chainz’s “I’m Different”; and Trey Songz’s “Nana.” With his chill demeanor DJ Mustard rocked the house with other track mixes including Drake/Future’s “Jumpman” & Asap Ferg’s “Work.”
Following DJ Mustard The second surprise guest came out with his shirt on but still swinging his towel like a helicopter. North Carolina’s own Petey Pablo reminded us why we couldn’t stop playing “Raise Up” when it dropped during his performance of the timeless classic.
Rolling out got a chance to catch up with the rapper. When asked what’s next for Petey Pablo, he replied, “Expect the unexpected from me. I am working with Empire right now writing, producing on the show. I am dibbling and dabbling in the film side of things right now. But I am definitely going to give yall another album because everyone is asking for it, gotta get it.”
As the crowd prepared for the main act, people bustled to the front of the stage. Teasing the crowd, Fabolous spoke on the mic from behind the stage without being seen and the crowd went crazy. Fabolous eventually jumped onto the stage paying homage to the Charlotte Hornets wearing a throwback jersey with Charlotte on his chest and dark shades. Fabolous kept the crowd jumping performing new music from his latest album, The Young OG Project. The crowd sang along as he performed his hits “Ball Drop,” “Lituation” and “We Good.” Fabulous also blessed the crowd with some of his older jewels like “Youg’n Holla Back.”
