Rock Creek Social Club’s Four Years of No-Posturing, No-Inhibitions Partying

Atlanta rapper Makonnen’s hallucinogenic ode to early-week partying, "Club Going Up On a Tuesday," (which just got a huge assist from Drake) would’ve been the theme song for Rock Creek Social Club’s now-defunct Good Life Tuesdays parties.
