The lineup for each concert will vary and features a diverse group of performing artists representing music genres such as rap, R&B and pop.
Artist Tef Poe has opened for Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli and Big Boi, and has performed alongside Common. This progressive hip-hop artist, who has performed at Loufest, has been described as “a Midwestern Nas with a pinch of Kanye, Eminem, 2pac and Ice Cube,” in XXL Magazine.
Mai Lee is a pop, R&B and soul singer/songwriter. She released a mixtape in 2013 that included a sultry mix of house, pop and R&B tracks incorporating her own work in collaboration with some of the music industry’s powerhouse producers.
Yak Boy Fresh, is known for escaping the confines of genre by offering a wide range of entertainment spanning from hip-hop, pop, country, rock and pretty much any other category his fans could imagine. He has opened for acts such as Tech 9, Bone Thugs, Machine Gun Kelly, Twista, Caskym Sno Tha Product and many others.
Top level lyricism, gritty street influence themes, killer creative hooks, an image that matches his story and tier-1 production skills have made T-Dubb-O a well-known rapper in the underground and battle scene. With over 1,000 performances under his belt, it is safe to say this young M.C. is far from a rookie.
Other artists (subject to change) set to perform include SMS, an ex'treme Institute graduate, R&B artist Mookie Tolliver and rap artists Bo Dean, Indiana Rome, Door Way, MC Keem, Legend Camp and Rockwell Knuckles..
