On Saturday December 27, Atlanta’s three biggest Hip-Hop artists; T.I., Ludacris, and Young Jeezy will deliver their first ever joint concert for Long Island’s Holiday Bash ’08.
The all-star show was the brainchild of Ludacris, who in a November interview with MTV expressed his desire to go on tour with other elite emcees from his hometown.
“I haven’t confirmed anything yet. It’s little talks here and there,” Ludacris cryptically stated. “But I’ll put it out there: I would love to do a tour where it’s me, T.I. and Jeezy. Me, Tip, and Jeezy would be outrageous. But nothing is confirmed yet.”
Based on how well the one-time concert does, an official nationwide tour could be announced shortly.
All three artists have released high-profile albums this year: T.I.’s Paper Trail (1X Platinum), Young Jeezy’s The Recession (Gold), and Ludacris’ Theater of the Mind.
The show will also boast additional performances from R&B newcomer Kristy Scott, and New York’s own Nina Sky and Jim Jones.
Hot 97’s Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff will host the evening, with Cipha Sounds handling DJ duties.
Before the show, fans will be treated to an exclusive meet and greet with the artists.
Tickets for the event range from $35.50-$125.50 and can be purchased through ticketmaster.com, or the Nassau Coliseum box office Monday-Friday, 9:30AM-4:30PM.
