Travis Porter to "Make it Rain" in Miami CANCELED
In terms of hip-hop, the ATL is always at the forefront of swag, pumping out bangers from some of the game's crunkest solo artists and rap crews.
Among them are three MCs -- Ali, Quez and Strap -- from the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, known collectively as Travis Porter, who, despite hustling in the rap game since 2006 (when the trio was known as Hard Hitters), have enjoyed a steady climb to mainstream recognition.
Together with the Kirko Bangz, Ca$h Out, and a slew of others, the Travis Porter dudes are scheduled to "Make it Rain" in Miami on February 23, when the Rizinstar Tour rolls through the James L. Knight Center.
But let's just hope Strap remembers to keep his Glock at home.
UPDATE The Rizinstar Tour with Travis Porter, Kirko Bangz, Ca$h Out, and others has nixed its show at the James L. Knight Center in downtown Miami.

About a year ago, Strap was arrested at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport when security scanners picked up a loaded .45-caliber handgun in the rapper's carry-on luggage.
Two days after the incident, Strap spoke with MTV's Sway Calloway and admitted the whole thing was a misunderstanding.
"[I was] moving fast man, leaving the studio to catch an early flight," he said. "[It was] an honest-to-God mistake."
A few months later, the Travis Porter dudes dropped their debut record, From Day 1, after a shit-ton of mixtapes. And the rest is history, including homie's careless slip-up.
