Over 10,000 people are expected to be in attendance for this third annual event that is the only official after-party to the State Fair Classic football game. The game every year is played at the Cotton Bowl and features Prairie View A&M and Grambling State University.

The State Fair of Texas is finally here and that means that the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic football game is back. It also means that the official State Fair Classic after-party, The LaTex Classic, is back. For the third consecutive year, the only official Grambling State University vs Prairie View A&M afterparty, LaTex (which is an abbreviation for Louisiana and Texas party), will be held at the Dallas Convention Center. Also for the third year in a row LaTex officials are expecting approximately 10,000 people in attendance for what has grown to be the largest indoor after-party in the south.

LaTex, which is sponsored this year by Seagram's Gin, features some of the top DJ’s and hosts from Texas and Louisiana including DJ Alo from Houston, DJ Frosty from Dallas, B Solo from Louisiana and DJ Phat from Louisiana. In addition to this star studded DJ lineup, the event will be co-hosted by talent from both Dallas urban radio stations. The radio talent include Hollywood Bay Bay and Ki Ki J from K104 as well as M Squared and J Kruz from 97.9 the beat.

As if that wasn’t enough, this event is also the birthday party for Dallas rap sensation B-Hamp, AKA Mr. Rickey Bobby. As he has done for the last three years, B-Hamp will be bringing in his celebrity friends for appearances and performances to create an event matched by no other in the south. Over the years B-Hamp’s celebrity friends have included artist like VIC who was known for hits like Get Silly and Wobble. This year B-Hamp promises that his celebrity friends list will top all the years in the past. His list of special invited and confirmed guest include DJ Smallz, Yung Nation, Dorrough, the legendary DJ Spinderella and a special surprise guest that could not be named.
