Probably the biggest hip-hop show of the year is happening tonight


Dear GYA, I'm just sitting around, chilling, gettin' ready for tonight's Elevated Minds show at The Complex. I just did a pretty big laundry load of nothing but HUF weed socks and camo shorts. So yeah, I'd say I'm good to go for a long night of hip-hop. Anything else I should do to get ready for tonight's show? - Marshal Mansers, Salt Lake City
