Raise your hand if you attempted the Renegade challenge at least once during the pandemic. It’s okay, the early stages of the pandemic were filled with Gen Z-choreographed dances. From Savage to Buss It, everyone tried their best to keep up with the youth. Now, for my people—we at the cusp of Gen Z and the edge of millennial—K Camp was not only the voice behind one of the pandemic’s hottest dance trends, but the voice to our undergraduate, post-undergraduate, and early-to mid-20s lives. Buy tickets for a true throwback. (PS: Don’t text your ex from any of those moments, because you have healed.)
No Limit Reunion Tour
Nov. 26, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre
🗣️ “ CASH MONEY RECORDS / TAKING OVER FOR THE ’99 & 2000’s” Thank you Juvenile for creating one of the most iconic lines in contemporary pop culture and hip-hop. For over 25 years, the New Orleanian has inspired millions of people across the world to drop it off and toot that thang up. But Friday night’s show in Grand Prairie is more No Limit than Cash Money: Master P, Mystikal, Silkk The Shocker, Mia X, Fiend, Mercedes, and Mr Serv On are all on the bill and will take you back. For those unfamiliar with the New Orleans record label, I encourage a Thanksgiving/Black Friday watch of BET’s No Limit Chronicles, which details its historic rise and domination of the 1990s. Purchase tickets.
All Latin Everything

Fresh off of a Houston stop, DJ VRWY brings her Latinx night back to Dallas for Black Friday. Burn off those calories while dancing to VRWY’s curated mix of Bad Bunny, Rosaila, Selena, J. Balvin, Kali Uchis, and plenty more. Get tickets before they sell out.
Westside Gunn vs. Smoke DZA
Nov. 28, 8 p.m. | Trees
This is not a concert for people who engage with hip-hop through TikTok or algorithm playlists. This is a concert for people who fell in love with hip-hop for the genre’s magical ability to transform young Black and Brown youth into storytellers. This is a concert for the generations who grew up on Yo! MTV Raps, BET’s Rap City, and Funkmaster Flex. Westside Gunn and Smoke DZA, two of New York’s finest (Gunn from Buffalo, DZA from Harlem) go head-to-head in a cypher, reminiscent of ’90s New York when lyricism mattered and rappers were evaluated by their bars instead of marketability. Before the two rappers face off, Devy Stonez, Jazz Regal, P$O Kwama, and DJ Trapaholics open the night to display Dallas’ place in hip-hop. Purchase tickets.
