Memphis native, Marco Pave rocked the crowd with his urban-country style. He performed 100, Stupid Dhuum, & Sacrifice- all from his debut album Welcome to GRC LND which is now available now on all streaming platforms. New Orleans own, individualistic Alfred Banks performed songs from his latest project The Beautiful Album which was released March of this year. This album was crafted in honor of his late brother Orlandas Banks who suffered from schizophrenia. Each song on the mixtape reflects schizophrenia awareness and the importance of mental health. This album has charted #12 on iTunes' "Rap/Hiphop" Charts & #79 on Billboard's "HeatSeeker" Charts. Crowd favorites were Vice, Kicks, Uptown and Grind King. This year Alfred is granted the opportunity to open for Kendrick Lamar at the Voodoo Festival. Connect with these creatives as they continue to dominate the hip-hop industry, in the humblest way possible. Shout out to @Dp.Mason and magnolia901 for the dope shots.
