What a perfect way to close out the summer — R&B princess Ashanti and hip-hop legend Ja Rule teamed up to co-headline the ultimate 90’s throwback tour after receiving acclaim during their string of sold-out dates this past spring.

The 11-city trek kicked off on Aug. 25 in the pair’s hometown of New York City and wrapped up in New Orleans on Sept. 10, but of course, it was only right to stop in Atlanta before they reached the finish line.

On Friday, Sept. 9, hundreds of ATLiens arrived at Buckhead Theatre to a nearly sold out show ready to rock out with the former Murda Inc. artists for one night only. The anticipated show most definitely took fans back in time to their adolescence and left them with memories to last a lifetime.

The dynamic duo performed several chart-topping hits together, including “Mesmerize,” “Down 4 You,” “Happy,” “Put It On Me” and the Grammy-nominated summer banger, “Always On Time.”
