    • for info, tickets
    • “The Concord, North Carolina native has been known for his quick wit and Southern charm since he was a kid but a knack for great storytelling and misdirection sets him apart. Famous for his wildly successful, hilarious commentary videos on pop culture that have been reposted by stars like Joe Rogan and Shaq, Ryan now adds another title to his resume – National touring comedian. In 2017 The Funnier In Person Tour featured sold out shows nationwide and rave reviews from fans and club owners alike. The year culminated with Ryan’s television standup comedy debut in December on HBO’s All Def Comedy. 2018 features a full touring schedule but of course he continues to make the hugely popular viral videos that continue to get millions of views. With over 1.5 million fans online, nearly half a billion video views and over 262 million minutes of his content watched on Facebook alone his fanbase is sure to continue to grow. If you don’t know who Ryan Davis is by now it’s not hard to find him.” (Source: Ryan Davis)
  • July 5 – Twista, Parish, Austin

    • for info, tickets
    • “Chicago rapper Twista is known for his tongue-twisting chopper-style of rapping and was the one-time holder of the Guinness World Record for fastest rapping in 1992. Born Carl Terrell Mitchell, he made his recording debut on “Po Pimp,” a platinum single by his fellow Windy City rappers Do or Die. Following “Po Pimp,” Twista signed with Big Beat/Atlantic and released his debut, Adrenaline Rush, in the summer of 1997. Mobstability followed a year later, and in 1999 Twista returned with Legit Ballin’. In fall 2002, he hooked up with Ludacris, Jay-Z, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and others for the recording of his third album. Kamikaze came out at the beginning of 2004 and promptly hit the Billboard 200, riding the impetus of his number one hit single “Slow Jamz.” (Source: Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

    • for info, tickets
    • “Prior to gaining mainstream exposure during late 2004 and early 2005 with his single “Still Tippin’,” Houston-based MC and self-promoter extraordinaire Mike Jones had long been a stalwart of the Swishahouse label, with a handful of releases under his belt. His breakout album, Who Is Mike Jones?, was released in April of 2005, distributed via Warner Brothers. It topped out at number three on the Billboard 200 chart. His second effort on a major label, the EP/DVD set The American Dream, followed in July 2007, but not before another series of mixtape releases. Two years later he returned with the single “Cuddy Buddy” along with the album The Voice.” (Source: Andy Kellman)
  • July 7 – Erykah Badu, Arena Theater, Houston

    • for info, tickets
    • “She grew up listening to ’70s soul and ’80s hip-hop, but Erykah Badu drew more comparisons to Billie Holiday upon her breakout in 1997, after the release of her first album, Baduizm. The grooves and production on the album are bass-heavy R&B, but Badu’s languorous, occasionally tortured vocals and delicate phrasing immediately removed her from the legion of cookie-cutter female R&B singers. A singer/songwriter responsible for all but one of the songs on Baduizm, she found a number 12 hit with her first single, “On & On,” which pushed the album to number two on the charts. Born Erica Wright in Dallas in 1971, Badu attended a school of the arts and was working as a teacher and part-time singer when she opened for D’Angelo at a 1994 show. D’Angelo’s manager, Kedar Massenburg, was impressed with the performance and hooked her up with the singer to record a cover of the Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell duet “Precious Love.” He also signed Badu to his recently formed Kedar Entertainment label, and served as producer for Baduizm, which also starred bassist Ron Carter and members of hip-hop avatars the Roots on several tracks. The first single, “On & On,” became a number one R&B hit in early 1997, and Baduizm followed it to the top of the R&B album charts by March. Opening for R&B acts as well as rap’s Wu-Tang Clan, Erykah Badu stopped just short of number one on the pop album charts in April. Her Live album followed later in the year. In 2000 she returned with her highly anticipated second studio album, Mama’s Gun, which was co-produced by Badu, James Poyser, Bilal, and Jay Dee and contained the hit single “Bag Lady.”” (Source: Andy Kellman)
  • July 27 – Royce da 5’9, The Rock Box, San Antonio

    • for info, tickets
    • “Royce Da 5’9” born Ryan Daniel Montgomery (July 5, 1977) first burst onto the music scene in the late ‘90s making a name for himself in Detroit’s competitive hip-hop scene battling local rappers at open mics. He would later befriend and join forces with another local rising talent Eminem, eventually recording their underground classics “Nothing To Do” and “Scary Movies” under the moniker “Bad Meets Evil” a name that would appear on Em’s multi-platinum debut, The Slim Shady LP. Over the next sixteen years Royce would record multiple albums, including solo projects Rock City (2002), Death Is Certain (2004), Independent’s Day (2005), Street Hop (2009) and Success Is Certain (2011) all while forming two additional groundbreaking groups. The four man wrecking crew Slaughterhouse releasing two albums Slaugterhouse LP (2009) and Welcome to: Our House (2012) via Shady Records and one album with the legendary DJ Premier as PRhyme PRhyme LP (2014) all while returning back to his roots with his original partner in rhyme Eminem as Bad Meets Evil with Hell: The Sequel (2011) In 2016, it would seem as if Royce has the world in the palm of his hands. With new solo albums, a follow up to their Welcome to: Our House Shady Records debut and a follow up their critically acclaimed PRhyme LP on the horizon the sky’s the limit for one of hip hop’s most versatile and longstanding MC’” (Source: Andy Kellman)
