Soulja Boy coming to Tupelo

15 Apr

Soulja Boy is coming back to Northeast Mississippi.

Soulja Boy, formerly of Batesville, will perform at the BancorpSouth Arena in Tupelo on Thursday, May 15. His hit, “Crank That,” was a smash last year.

“Lip Gloss” rapper Lil Mama and Lil Josh will also perform.

Tickets are $45, $35 and $28, plus service charge.

    Man, ticket prices just keep going up. Does Lil Mama have any other songs of note besides “Lip Gloss”?

    She does, indeed – “Shawty Get Loose,” featuring T-Pain and Chris Brown.

    A lot of hip-hop/rap blogs say the song really showcases how talented she is, and that she’s more than a one-hit wonder. I’m still waiting on her debut record, though.

    Good lord. The BCS Arena dropped the ball again. There had to be something better than this mess out there.

    Wait a minute – she hasn’t put out a record yet? Only two songs?

    And wasn’t she a judge on the MTV dance crew show?

    Nope, no CD out yet, but that’s coming this summer. But that’s kind of how the industry’s going now — more successful singles, less successful albums.
    And yeah, she was a judge on the dance crew show.

    I can guarantee you the folks at the Arena would not have booked these artists if they didn’t think it would draw a big crowd.
    Soulja Boy, etc. may not be everyone’s cup of tea – but what a boring world it would be if everyone liked the same music.

    I bet it’s a sellout……
