Power 98.3 and UrbanAZ take over Celebrity Theatre for a beat-filled night of local acts and one towering superstar. Rick Ross, a Def Jam recording artist, skilled rapper, and founder of Maybach Music Group, appropriately headlines the night with a thunderous voice and intimidating stature. Ross began his formidable career as a key player in Miami's underground rap scene before his hit single “Hustlin',” from 2006’s Port of Miami, transformed him into a buzzworthy hip-hop heavyweight. Knowledgeable in the ways of lacing meaning into his beats, Ross fills tracks such as “B.M.F.” and “Valley of Death” with lessons—sometimes self-deprecating—learned from previous periods of his life, such as when he served as a correctional officer. Last summer, he added to his gaudy treasury of rhymes with God Forgives, I Don’t, which Consequence of Sound said “puts more imagination into single couplets than most rappers do into entire verses,” making for “one of the most lyrically interesting major-label rap albums in recent memory.”
Ross performs at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards

Celebrity Theatre's distinctive in-the-round construction keeps show-goers close to the action, with no seat more than 70 feet from the performers. The slowly rotating stage ensures each audience member can bask in singers' flashing smiles and search the backs of their heads for bonus flashing smiles.
