Assuming a 125 mile (NYC to AC) drive to the casino, the odds of dying in a traffic accident are about 1 in 1 million in New Jersey. (Source. You have to drill down to find the 2015 NJ statistics of Fatalities per 100 Million Vehicle Miles, which is 0.75)

I could not find any "Rap Concert" fatality data, but let's make the assumption that in a given year, one person is killed from violence after a concert. I think that would be an accurate, if not conservative estimate. Now, let's assume 100 rap concerts in a year in NJ with an average attendance of 10,000 people. Using these assumptions, there would be a 1 in 1 million chance of dying due to concert related violence.

So, using what I consider to be conservative estimates, it seems that the two are about equally likely.




I'd love to be your bookie.

Looks like many of the tickets for this are either $113 or $281 each, with a minimum purchase of two, plus tax & fees, depending on how close ya wanna get to the latest version of "bad boys" manufactured by the entertainment industry. So, I'm picturing several thousand spoiled suburban kids who went out to the mall and got their gangsta on at the Gap with daddy's AMEX card in order to feel appropriately dangerous at the New Jersey stop on the "Nobody Safe Tour" (*snicker*snort*giggle*).

Ho-hum. Seen that, done there. Decades ago, a time or two or ten, mostly sometime in the last century. Has always been the easiest kind of opportunity in the world for even the most doufus loser type horny guy to score a little sumpin-sumpin. Foolproof instructions: Don't shower, don't shave, throw on the most stanky duds that have been marinating in the bottom of the clothes hamper, go up to a gaggle of the bored suburban snots at something like this and speak to them as crudely as possible, like you've been raised by wolves, and you'll already be on third base. Some things truly never change:

She was kinda cute, but from the looks of it, she turned out to be a grumpy lesbian.

Pretty bad when the original "Sin City" Las Vegas wanted to ban rap concerts. Steve Wynn and others were on board with this.....

Did the riots and looting from the rap concert cause much property damage?

No because they found big strong men to protect them headed to AC.

I remember that Jay Z after party at the Trump Plaza years back. The police had to come in with the dogs to keep things under control.
