Lecrae Raps The Gospel at the Palace

 Christian, Concerts, LMNEditor, Previews, Urban, Video  Comments Off on Lecrae Raps The Gospel at the Palace
Oct 312014
 

The Houston-born Christian rapper Lecrae brings Andy Mineo and DJ Promote into the Louisville Palace with him on November 1, offering up a solid evening of Christian and Gospel music, with a strong emphasis on redemption, given that Lecrae had the kind of background that an escape from is certainly redemption. He has earned a large stack of awards of all sorts, including a couple of Grammy Awards, and is out promoting his latest album, Anomoly. Tickets to the show were $25 to $100, but you’ll have to get them somewhere else, as the show is sold out.

Here’s the new video for “All I Need Is You”:

Rapper Hoodie Allen at Mercury Ballroom For Halloween

 Concerts, LMNEditor, Previews, Rap, Video  Comments Off on Rapper Hoodie Allen at Mercury Ballroom For Halloween
Oct 272014
 

“[Hoodie] Allen is fresh off headlining the Grand Ballroom in New York’s Webster Hall, where he crowd surfed and got his hometown fans whipped into a frenzy with his breezy style, otherwise known as “frat-rap” for its resonance with college-aged students.” – Jspace.com
Yer hip-hop show for Halloween night could be down at the Mercury Ballroom, when Jewish Hoodie Allen stops in, bringing his Hoodie Mob fans along with him on his People Keep Talking tour. Hoodie only has one full-length studio album, People Keep Talking, released earlier this month, as well as three EPs, available digitally, but he has toured a lot over the last couple of years. As this is the first time he has been in the Derby City, how much his “frat-rap” will draw is open to question. Tickets aren’t cheap at $29.50 Ticket + $5.75 Fees / $35.25.

Hoodie says he should Act My Age>

Bowling Green’s (with Louisville connections) Nappy Roots return to the Derby City for a concert at the Mercury Ballroom on July 17. It’s a been quite the ride for the Kentucky alternative rap crew, from the highs in the early years of this century, when their albums Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz and Wooden Leather spawned hits and they were the best-selling rap group in the country. Since then it’s been up and down, with their records selling less well, though they continue to tour. Their most recent project, Nappy Dot Org, is still the album driving their tour. Tickets for the Mercury Ballroom show will cost you $32  plus fees.

Here’s “Good And Evil” from Nappy Dot Org:
