Saturday To-Do: Young Dro / Huey




9 p.m., Mims Gymnasium, Philander Smith College. $40.

At Philander Smith, they don't just do homecoming weekend; the party stretches all week. After last weekend's step competition and riverboat cruise, the celebration winds down with men's and women's basketball followed by an after-party featuring the rappers above, each of which is big in the club, or was recently. Young Dro is out of Atlanta, a part of T.I.'s Grand Hustle team. He comes to town in advance of his sophomore album, “P.O.L.O (Players Only Live Once),” which is due out in January. Expect the crowd to be well-versed in the particulars of the “Shoulder Lean.” The dance track launched Dro to fame in 2006. The following year might've belonged to St. Louis' Huey, who had dance floors on lock from the opening line of “Pop Lock and Drop It”: “Toot that thing up mami, make it roll.” Lil Ru and Teairra Mari round out the bill.
