Week 2 of the preseason brings the New York Jets to face the Bengals Saturday night at Paul Brown Stadium. With one more week into the preseason that means two things. 1) Starters are more likely to get longer playing time, which is what all fans want. 2) It just means we’re one week closer to the season opener for some good old fashion regular season football.

1. Drake & Lil Wayne @ Riverbend Friday at 7 PM (doors open at 5:30)

Two of the hottest artist on the planet right now are going to be in Cincinnati tonight! Less than 24 hours ago Lil Wayne announced that his latest album, The Carter V, will be released this fall. Chances of him rapping tracks off his latest album definitely have to be high. Don’t miss one of the hottest shows of the summer. It was crazy when Beyonce and Jay-Z came to down, and it’s sure to be even bigger with the YMCM crew.
