At Radio One Fest, some of hip-hop's heaviest hitters will come out the woodwork to anchor the stage with their mammoth-sized beats and larger-than-life personas. Atlanta rapper and crossover actor T.I., who's shared the big screen with Denzel Washington in the movie American Gangster, reminds listeners of the rhyme schemes and bravado that put him on the map with his forthcoming release, Trouble Man. His distinctly Southern style of hip-hop earned him Grammy Awards for the songs "What You Know," "My Love," and "Swagga Like Us," which he famously performed at the 2009 ceremony alongside Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and a very pregnant M.I.A. Fellow Atlanta artist Young Jeezy, promoting his latest album, Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, unleashes an explosive flow that garnered praise from Pitchfork, which described his music as "some of the last decade's finest action flicks." Young Jeezy's charisma and rhymes have even grabbed the attention of President Obama, who stated at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, "In my first term, I sang Al Green. In my second term, I'm going with Young Jeezy."
Former N.W.A. member and current Hollywood star Ice Cube, whose Friday films chronicled a typical day in south-central Los Angeles in the mid-'90s, continues to build on a long rap career, now into its fourth decade, that birthed the memorable lyrics, "Today I didn't even have to use my A.K./ I got to say it was a good day." Terror Squad members Fat Joe and DJ Khaled reacquaint ears to radio hits that have dominated the airwaves and grandmothers' ringtones for more than a decade. Other notable performers on the Radio One Fest lineup include Washington D.C.'s Wale, Monica, Waka Flocka Flame, Kirko Bangz, and Melanie Fiona.
