Joey Bada$$ & Vince Staples add CMJ to tour + Deniro Farrar, Rae Sremmurd, Dej Loaf & more hip hop at CMJ
As discussed, Joey Bada$$ and Vince Staples are on tour together which hits NYC on Nov. 8 & 11 at Irving Plaza (tickets), but they’ve since added a show happening much sooner. They’ll be here this week for the 7th annual CMJ Takeover which happens Thursday (10/23) at Highline Ballroom with Smoke DZA, Cozz, SD, Raz Fresco and DP on the bill too. It’s a late show (11 PM doors), and admission is free with RSVP. You also have to follow @FILAUSA on Instagram and RSVP doesn’t guarantee entry. Updated Joey Bada$$/Vince Staples dates are listed below.
Speaking of hip hop at CMJ, Mississippi duo Rae Sremmurd (pronounced Ray-Shrim-er”), who you may know for their Makonnen-ish hit “No Flex Zone,” play their first headlining NYC show tonight (10/21) at SOB’s with OG Maco and Father. Tickets for the Electric Circus/Rock Smith-presented show are on sale. You can watch the “No Flex Zone” video below.
Another CMJ hip hop show tonight is Dertoit rapper Dej Loaf, who (like Makonnen) was co-signed by Drake. She plays the Noisey/Beats by Dre/Burn It Down Group show at Santos tonight (10/21). It’s her NYC debut, and support comes from Key! and Mike Zombie. Tickets are on sale now. The video for “Try Me” can be watched below.
And last but definitely not least, Deniro Farrar and Denzel Curry are currently on a co-headlining tour which hits NYC for a CMJ show on Friday (10/24) at the Marlin Room at Webster Hall with Remy Banks, D.R.A.M., Kevin Abstract and JK the Reaper. Tickets for that show are available.
We also highlighted NYC rapper Cakes Da Killa in our list of local artists to catch at CMJ.
