50 Cent, G-Unit, Rae Sremmurd and Kygo deliver a night of high-energy throwback music to a sold-out crowd at Syracuse University's annual Block Party concert at the Carrier Dome.
Rae Sremmurd kicked off the annual end-of-the-school-year celebration, Block Party, at the Carrier Dome on Friday night. The event was hosted by Syracuse University’s programming board, University Union. The Atlanta-based hip-hop duo opened with “No Type.” It went on to perform “No Flex Zone,” a single that reached No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
From the South to Syracuse, the artists fused electronic dance music with southern style rap for an unforgettable ending to University Union's final Bandersnatch concert of the year.
Southern rapper Isaiah Rashad headlined the event and captivated the audience with his ability to transition from performing smooth soulful songs to raw raps over southern beats. Rashad says he finds his inspiration in spontaneity and from movies such as Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing". Rashad signed with California based, independent record label Top Dawg Entertainment in 2013 and says that, "it's very inspiring...It's a family, we work and chill together".
