Ace Hood and Meek Mill kicked off their Dreams Come True Tour in Boston, MA on April 4th and the House of Blues was certainly turned up for the occasion. After an opening act from Lil Snupe to get the crowd hyped, Ace Hood took the stage and began firing off some of his hits. Ace got the crowd moving with his old school collab hits like Out Here Grindin, his mixtape hits like Goin Down off Starvation 2, and hits from his older albums like Go n Get It. He also tore the house down when he dropped his newest single, Bugatti featuring Future and that was possibly the loudest the crowd got.
Meek hit the stage to an incredible ovation with his DJ and a couple sets of keys behind him for some live action beats. Meek got the crowd hyped with his usual “turn up” tracks like Young n Gettin It, Believe It, Face Down Ass Up, and his intro track off Dreams & Nightmares which is one of the hottest intros to an album ever. However, Meek wasn’t afraid to turn down a little, if you will, and perform some of his more poignant tracks like Used To Be A Used To and Traumatized which speak volumes of his struggle before his success. Meek took some time during the show to just have the DJ break it down and play some hits like Started From The Bottom, Bitches Love Me, I Don’t Like, Meek also brought Ace Hood back out on stage showing lots of love for the MC and called him at one point one of the most underrated rappers in the game. After he welcomed Ace back on stage he had him perform his new single Bugatti for the second time and the crowd was possibly the most turnt up it was all night! Check out the footage below!
Finally, Meek closed out the show by thanking the fans, his team, Ace Hood, and everyone that made the night possible. He spoke of his struggle as a youth and what it took to get from the bottom to where he is right now. He thanked God and expressed his faith to the crowd and led it all perfectly into his hit single Amen with his man behind him playing the beat live action on the keyboards after a long intro during Meek’s speech. It was truly an epic show and it is safe to say the Dreams Come True Tour was officially kicked off with authority!
