Touring musicians often form close bonds as they connect over shared musical influences and a love of drawing mustaches on their sleeping tour-bus driver. Witness the fruits of musical partnership with this GrouponLive deal to see The MMG Tour, featuring Rick Ro$$, Meek Mill, Wale, and more, at the Event Center at San Jose University. For $40, you get one G-Pass for general admission standing on Friday, November 30, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $68.30 value, including fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
The MMG Tour, an event celebrating the achievements of the Maybach Music Group, corrals lauded hip-hop acts for a showcase of beats, rhymes, and swagger. Rick Ro$$, a Def Jam recording artist, skilled rapper, and founder of Maybach Music Group, appropriately headlines the night with a thunderous voice and intimidating stature. The artist began his formidable career as a key player in Miami's underground rap scene before his hit single “Hustlin',” from 2006’s Port of Miami, transformed him into a buzzworthy hip-hop heavyweight. Knowledgeable in the ways of lacing meaning into his beats, Ro$$ fills tracks such as “B.M.F.” and “Valley of Death” with lessons—sometimes self-deprecating—learned from periods of his life, such as when he served as a correctional officer.
Before Ro$$ commands the stage, volatile rapper Wale ignites the mic with his mighty lexicon and pulsating rhythms. A prized representative of the Maybach Music empire, Wale’s knack for infectious tracks and snappy syntax has led to mixtape mingling with Mark Ronson and Lady Gaga, a BET Hip Hop Award for Best Club Banger for the collaboration “No Hands,” and the LP Attention Deficit. Hot off the recent release of his debut album, Dreams and Nightmares, Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill incites emphatic head-bobs to tracks such as “Amen,” “Burn,” and “Young & Gettin’ It.” Burgeoning hip-hop star Machine Gun Kelly also joins in the fun, captivating onlookers with a rapid-fire lyrical style that raises the roof and wrings tears from its architect.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
