Homecoming is approaching quickly here on the campus of Southern University. Alumni from all over come back to Southern and the atmosphere should make fun for an exciting time. With homecoming approaching quickly, it’s always a great time to look at the always anticipated concert. This year’s lineup is packed with talent that includes the likes of Ambjaay, Sherwood Marty, Eric Bellinger, Dee Mic, and Keith Jacobs. The main acts this year includes Young Dolph, Ari Lennox, Young Nudy, and Lil Baby. With more artists than last year’s homecoming concert, it should be a great night.
The first artist of the main acts is Young Dolph. The Memphis rapper has been rapping since 2008 and has been one of the best rappers out of Memphis which includes rappers such as Moneybagg Yo, Yo Gotti, and Key Glock. With projects such as 16 Zips, Bulletproof, and Thinking Out Loud, Dolph has rounded up a great career for a rapper in the last 5 years.
Another artist for the 2019 homecoming concert is Ari Lennox. Ari Lennox is one of the up and coming stars in the music industry. Originally from Washington DC, Ari Lennox is an R&B artist with a smooth voice and a creative soul. In 2015, Ari Lennox became the first female to sign to J.Cole’s record label Dreamville Records. Earlier this year, Lennox released her first studio album called Shea Butter Baby featuring songs such as ‘BMO’ and ‘Broke’ featuring JID. Ari Lennox’s stardom is rising and she is a great artist to have at this year’s concert.
The third artist that we have for this concert is rapper Young Nudy. Young Nudy is from the current hip hop capital of the word (Atlanta, Georgia) and is the cousin of well known Atlanta based rapper 21 Savage. For the past 3 years, Young Nudy has become one of the emerging names in rap today. His projects includes Slimeball, Slimeball II, Nudyland, Slimeball III, and his latest project Sli’merre. Young Nudy was also featured on the song ‘Down Bad’ which is on the Dreamville album that came out this summer. As an artist that is getting more noteritey for his music around the country he is going to be a great performer for the concert this year.
The last artist headlining the concert this year is Atlanta based artist Lil Baby. In the last 2 years, no other rapper has emerged to stardom on the mainstream platform as much as Lil Baby. Lil Baby is apart of Quality Control, which has a roster of artist that includes the City Girls and the Migos and has become a rising record label in the music industry. Lil Baby’s excellence has been due to his projects such as Harder than Hard, Harder than Ever, and Street Gossip. Southern has always had great headliners and Lil Baby is one of the best out at this time.
This homecoming lineup has artists for everyone. We have more artists for this concert than ever before which should make for a great event. This year’s lineup has everything from rap to R&B to the throwbacks which should make this homecoming hard to forget.
