My side is all riders and your side dont buy tickets
If you don’t buy tickets then his side is alright because he has many fans to support him.
Also, a rider is something an artist submits to a venue before they preform in order to ensure it’s up to their standards and prepared for them when they arrive.
Wale’s side is all artists who sell out shows and thus all need riders while the other side isn’t just not booking shows but they’re not even buying tickets (probably because they’re too broke to afford them) to shows.
