Essence Festival

  • Kendrick Lamar: His 2012 major-label debut, good kid, m.A.A.d. City, was one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year, and earned him seven Grammy nominations. Lamar’s hot streak continues with 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly, which is already winning widespread acclaim for its dense production and deft storytelling. Fans might recognize Tupac, Jay-Z, and Nas in the DNA of his flow, which manages to be laidback even when he’s spitting at 200 beats per minute.
  • Mary J. Blige: After dropping What’s the 411? in 1992, the neo-soul superstar embarked on a career marked by even more notable numbers, including 9 (the number of Grammys she’s won, and her ranking on VH1’s list of 100 Greatest Women in Music), and 1 (where Billboard ranked her classic, “Be Without You,” in its list of top R&B songs of the 2000s).
  • Floetry: Marsha “The Songstress” Ambrosius and Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart return to the stage after a near decade-long hiatus to regale fans with smooth, pentameter-hefty hits such as “Floetic” and “Say Yes.”
  • Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue: With his self-defined “supafunkrock” band, the trumpet hero seen on HBO’s Treme defies expectations of New Orleans jazz with a live set that sizzles with the swagger of a hip-hop show.
  • Mase: The Bad Boys Records rapper with a flow as slow as a gelatin waterfall made his mark dropping verses in Diddy’s “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” before scoring two number-one hits with his own singles, “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” and “Been Around the World.” 
  • Also Appearing: SZA | Dee 1 | Dumpstaphunk | Andra Day | Lianne La Havas | Eric Roberson | Teedra Moses | Andy Allo | Jeff Bradshaw | Omarion | Robert Glasper | Tweet
