Concert season is upon us! The month of March is bringing some of the hottest acts in hip-hop to the city of Philadelphia. Here are four hip-hop shows you don't want to miss:
1. Trinidad James
Three words: All Gold Everything. Trinidad James may not be all that in the looks department, but his most recent single, All Gold Everything, will invade your brain and never leave. On Tuesday, March 5, Babylon Cartel will present Trinidad James at the Theater of Living Arts. The gold-toothed emcee has recently made headlines for making the roster for The 6th Annual Roots Picnic; so get your passes quickly because this is sure to be a hot ticket. Don't believe me? Just watch.
Tuesday, March 5 Theater of Living Arts 334 South St. 8 pm Tickets
2. Chill Moody
In December 2012, Philadelphia’s own Chill Moody sold out the TLA and on March 22, he will be back on the scene for a performance at the Hard Rock Café. With a recent MTV Jams debut under his belt, Chill Moody is on the fast track to fame so make sure you see him while you can. He’ll also have a few pals that will be performing with him including: rising R&B stars Beano and Suzann Christine, Teff, Tye James, DJ Ricochet, DJ Greg Nitty and Band 4 Higher. Tickets are available on Ticketfly and at chillmoody.com. Grab 'em while you can.
Friday, March 22
Hard Rock Café 1113 Market St. 7 pm Tickets
3. Tyler the Creator
Everybody’s favorite potty-mouthed rapper, Tyler the Creator, will be hitting the TLA in March with many anticipated surprises in-store. The LA born emcee is known for his controversial lyrics and behavior, so to say that his show will be interesting is probably an understatement. If you’re going to purchase tickets, you better act fast because the last time he touched down in Philadelphia his show sold out in a snap.
Sunday, March 24 Theater of Livings Arts 334 South St. 9 pm Tickets
4. Pusha T
G.O.O.D. Music artist, Pusha T, is back in Philly to promote his recently released mixtape ,“Wrath of Caine”, and this time he’s bringing some friends. Philly’s own Asaad, King Mez, Dj Damage and Dj Active will be hopping on stage to get the party started before the main event. Kanye West may be a little (OK, a whole lot of) crazy, but if he gives Pusha T the co-sign, you better believe this is going to be a good show.
Friday, March 29 Union Transfer 1026 Spring Garden St. 8 pm Tickets
