Legendary producer Jermain Dupri and Verizon have teamed up to present Super Bowl Live, leading up to the week before Super Bowl LIII.
The six-day event started on Monday, Jan. 28, with Atlanta artists taking the stage at Centennial Olympic Park giving the public a free show of non-stop Atlanta classics. The concert paid homage to the city’s very own Goodie Mob, Pastor Troy, Crime Mob, DJ Unk, and Trillville as the ATL legends performed several of their hits.
Headling the event was Goodie Mob, known for solidifying the city’s spot in the hip-hop. The crowd sang along with some of the groups hits such as “People Don’t Dance No Mo,” “Cell Therapy,” “Soul Food,” and “Get Rich To This.” However, the lineup didn’t stop there.
Streetz 94.5 radio host DJ Holiday brought out a new generation of Atlanta’s finest for a 90-minute act including Rich Homie Quan, Young Dro, YFN Lucci, Waka Flocka, Light Skin Keisha, K Camp, F.L.Y. Scrappy, K Camp, Trinidad James, Travis Porter, OJ da Juiceman, and Rocko.
From “swag surfing,” “two-stepping,” and “knucking and bucking,” the concert illustrated Atlanta’s hip-hop artists from past to present. The crowd was clearly pumped as they continuously chanted “We Ready” while a marching band performed on stage.
Combining old school and new school, Super Bowl Live Monday showed just how much Atlanta continues to influence hip-hop while birthing a new wave of charting musicians.
Super Bowl Live continued to highlight Atlanta’s music scene with more free performances with the last concert taking place Saturday, Feb. 2 at Centennial Olympic Park from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
