Jeezy, K. Michelle, & Lloyd
May 26, 8 p.m. | Texas Trust CU Theatre
Since his mainstream debut in 2004, Jeezy has played an integral role in expanding trap music outside of Atlanta. Alongside T.I. and rival Gucci Mane, the Atlanta musician brought the music and culture of The Dirty South to the world. Jeezy has worked with Kanye West, Rihanna, Usher, and Akon as he dominated the Billboard charts in the late 2000s. Tonight, he will be joined by R&B heartthrob Lloyd, a chart-topper in his own right and ambassador of the R&B/Hip-Hop sound. As the only woman on the lineup, K. Michelle brings her sultry vocals to the male-dominated stage. Michelle has achieved success in both the music industry and reality television. Buy tickets.
So What?! Music Festival
May 27-29 | Choctaw Stadium
Oftentimes, music festivals in Dallas do not include artists from the city’s own vibrant music scene. Thankfully, Mike Ziemer, co-founder of So What?! Music Festival, thinks different. This year’s festival includes DJ Kimblee, DJ Save Aves, DJ Saucy D, Yak The Mack, 10k. Caash and other local musicians and DJs. The Dallas-based artists will perform on the same lineup as Rae Sremmurd, 2 Chainz, Big K.R.I.T., Juicy J, Waka Flocka Flame, and more. For the non hip-hop heads, the festival has a metal/rock stage and pop punk/alt stage. Purchase tickets.
