 Hip-hop artists Gucci Mane, Migos to headline concert

By Tiana Acosta, Special Correspondent 

Raindrops, Droptop, Aggies will be dancing and they won’t stop!

Award winning artists Gucci Mane and Migos will headline the homecoming concert and feature other popular stars.

Also performing will be YFN Lucci and DJ Drama. The event takes place at 7pm, Saturday, Oct. 7 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Attendees will enjoy a night full of music from these artists, crowd interaction, and a possible VIP meet and greets.

The Homecoming concert is traditionally one of the biggest attractions for the University.  Many popular celebrities such as Young Thug, Young MA, and Future have agreed to perform at this event in previous years.

“The concert along with the football game increases business approximately 20-30% that weekend alone,” said Fred Ali, a local business owner.

The students anticipated the announcement of the performers at the Student University Activities Board block party, in collaboration with the Student Government Association. The two organizations collectively put the line up together, and the students are pleased. “I am in shock that we got Gucci, wow. SGA and SUAB did really well this year,” explained Jenelle Evans, a junior Industrial and Systems student.

Every spring a survey is released for the students to vote on who they would like to see at homecoming. However, the ultimate choice is up to the student leaders.

The event sells out the Greensboro Coliseum annually and consequently influxes the city population about 20,000. In its entirety, NC A&T’s homecoming has done a tremendous job with serving all age groups, aggies or non-aggies. This year is expected to uphold, if not exceed, the standard set.

It is strongly suggested for participants to Uber or carpool because of the predicted traffic.
