This Live Music Experience is sure to be a truly amazing, unique tribute to one of hip-hop’s most influential trendsetter of all time. Mike Hicks & the Funk Puncs Band will set the musical backdrop for the stage that will allow various local artist/performers to pay tribute to Kanye West through their talents. As the perfect kick-off to Tennessee State University’s Homecoming weekend, we thought it was fitting and proper to pay tribute to the College Dropout. During the evening we will “Drive Slow” through the 10 year discography of Mr. West, focusing on his college themed works: “The College Dropout”, “Late Registration” and “Graduation”!
Local Artist were commissioned to complete the artwork for happy hour which will take place from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Happy Hour will also be complemented by Kanye West inspired spoken word by SouthernWord: A YouthSpeaks Organization, and live performances from one of Nashville’s premier breakdance troupes. The tribute concert will start at 7:15pm. You Can Purchase Tickets HERE
