Hip-Hop: Warming Up

Louie by

This past winter has been a weird one; the weather has been both mild and cruel. But one thing that’s kept us moving through the cruel periods is music. Artists never stop touring, but spring is the most rewarding of the seasons as the temperatures trend upward, which only enhances the experience.

To begin the season, southern legend Jeezy is heading to The Strand in PVD on March 1. Along with him is Tee Grizzley, an up-and-comer in the genre who will benefit from Jeezy’s crowd and attract an audience of his own. Should be an enjoyable show for those who enjoy trap music.

March at The Strand is lit — another notable artist blazing the stage is R&B star Miguel, performing on March 17. He’ll be bringing along TDE’s SiR, as well as other artists to set the R&B vibes proper as they tour for Miguel’s recently released album War & Leisure.

April hosts a couple dope shows as the season begins to bloom. A$AP Ferg heads over to the House of Blues Boston on April 12. And Joey Bada$$ makes his way to Boston’s Paradise Rock Club shortly after on April 17. Both concerts will be quite the experience as these artists and their fan base are rather unique in hip-hop.

To close the season out with a bang before the summer transition, Big Sean will put on an incredible show at the Mohegan Sun arena on May 19. Hopefully the “Unfriendly Reminder” tour will make up for the lackluster album he recently released. Longtime fans will be satisfied, as he’s doing a tour performing the music his fans vote for him to perform!

If all that wasn’t enough, there’s always the eclectic Boston Calling Festival in Cambridge, Mass, from May 25 to 27. Some notable hip-hop and R&B artists on the lineup are Eminem, Tyler, The Creator, Bryson Tiller, Khalid, BROCKHAMPTON, Daniel Caesar, Noname, Westside Gunn & Conway, Thundercat and STL GLD, as well as a few others.

These are just a few shows happening, so look out for more concerts in your area. Part of the music experience is going to these live shows, and this spring is as good a time as any to start enjoying them!
