Hip Hop’s Best Headline Funk Fest


Klassic Hip Hop music made its way to Charlotte, North Carolina for the Funk Fest Concert, which was held during the weekend of September 12th-13th. There were a number of acts on hand for the event that began with rain pouring down on the two-night celebration that was well attended despite the weather. During the first night B.O.B, Dougie Fresh, and Salt n Peppa would take the crowd down memory lane as they performed their hits that made them loved by everyone in attendance. The night ended with Outkast performing almost a two hour set. Outkast has been performing at festivals all over the world since the start of April 2014. Andre 3000 teamed up with his rap partner Big Boi to celebrate their 20th anniversary since the release of their first album. The last night of Funk Fest concluded with The Roots, 112, Fantasia, and LL Cool J. The crowd seemed to gain momentum with the arrival of Fantasia as she interacted with the crowd. Ice Cube kept it straight “West Coast” as he reminisced with classic hits like “Today Was a Good Day” and “What Can I Do.” Ice Cube set the stage for the good reception that LL Cool J would receive when he hit the stage. LL wasted no time letting the audience know that he’s still making good music after over 25 years in the game. His signature song at the conclusion of the festival put it best, “He’s Bad!”
