Day 1 of the Smoker's Club Festival was packed with individuals, fans, and artists of all ages and walks of life. Considering the Smoker's Club being a "smoking" vicinity for fellow hippies and cool folks accompanied by some of hip hop's legendary artists, such as Schoolboy Q and Wiz Khalifa, the experience through our set of eyes left some kids under the influence leading to quite a few kids passing out from being under the influence without parental guidance or responsible friends, lack of water intake, and peer pressure. The Smoker's Club would leave any child under the influence of second hand smoke and THC filled lungs. (We all know the healing & harmless factors of THC & CBD, but the cigarette smoke definitely partook in heavy headaches).

What we can say is "trueee"...is the fact that "mama ain't raise no hoe". 2 Chainz gave a shoutout to all the beloved mother's in the universe by performing "Proud" solo without featured Bompton native YG & ATL native, Offset. The crowd was hype all throughout 2 Chainz performance as he performed "No Problem", "Birthday Song", and "Good Drank".

Schoolboy Q gave his fans and listeners comedy, energy, and a raw performance all while being the highlight of Day 1 prior to Wiz performing his classic Kush & OJ track-list. In the midst of Q's performance, the ambulance landed a spot dead center to cater to someone that was again either dehydrated, too high, or under the influence.

"I feel f***ing weird with the cops right in front of me right now " as Q laughed off the fact that most of his music is aimed at the police and the black community.
Schoolboy Q enters his next song and reminds his fans, "Like I said, there's a lot of motherf***ers that work tonight, but we right here"...as the angelic vocals in "Blessed" compliment Q's bars and uplifts the people.

For a split second Q questioned whether to continue performing or not, but the show continued on, and the ambulance escorted the guest in need. A hyped crowd jammed out to TDE's Black Panther album debuted at #1 on the Billboard with "X".

Wiz represented a modern day Black Jesus as he lifted the crowd with some of his smoothest jams such as "Up" as he floated across the stage and switched up with an upbeat cadence to "Never Been". Healing frequencies were felt through his music and we know Wiz to be one of the King's of kaneh-bosom.
