Each episode dissects a single day on various major tours in different cities with a new lineup of artists. The pilot episode follows Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, B.o.B, Trinidad James, Ty Dolla $ign and more, on at the Houston, TX leg of this summer’s sold out “Under the Influence 2” Tour. Raze’s latest creation shows how crucial touring is for each artist’s career as it gives them a chance to speak directly to their fans across the country.
"I wanted to show you a snapshot of what goes on and even how the artist got involved," says Raze, Director and Executive Producer of the show. "Trinidad James explained that this tour allowed him and Joey Bada$$ to squash their Twitter beef…they got together and spoke and now I see them showing each other love backstage. Tours have a way of healing riffs and creating avenues for artists to collaborate and make new music for the fans,” Raze notes.
Hip-Hop legend Bun B calls touring a "traveling brotherhood” and that’s exactly what you’ll see on “The Tour Report.” Viewers will hear some of today’s most beloved artists tell stories of their craziest moments on tour and their personal feelings about making music. As A$AP Rocky sums it up, “This tour means get high, smoke weed, have fun, stay outta trouble, get home safe.”
Raze, whose company Tantrum Productions filmed the show, says he plans to do something at this year’s annual Rock the Bells concert tour as well as the A3C Hip-Hop Festival in Atlanta, for upcoming show episodes. “I’m real excited. You’ll see the crazy moments and get to feel what each artist really feels about their music and their craft. They don’t do this for the money – they do this to perform for the fans. And that’s what I really want to show,” explains Raze.
