Rick Ross, Playboi Carti and Ugly God Join Billboard’s 2017 Hot 100 Music Festival Lineup
So it's safe to say the 2017 Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival is going to be pretty lit. Today (June 15), Billboard announces Rick Ross, Playboi Carti and Ugly God have become the newest additions to the star-studded festival lineup. All three will head into the festival, which takes place just at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater just outside New York City from August 19-20, with a ton of momentum.
Rozay is coming off dropping his latest album, titled Rather You Than Me, back in March. The project was praised for its cinematic lyricism and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart after it sold 100,000 album equivalent units first week.
And then, of course, there's Carti and Ugly God. Fresh off being named members of XXL's 2017 Freshman class, the two are both poised to do huge things throughout the rest of the year. Carti made major waves when he dropped his self-titled mixtape back in April, and "Magnolia," which is a single from the project, recently popped up in a Sprint commercial. Meanwhile, Ugly God's got plenty of fans awaiting the release of his debut project The Booty Tape.
Also taking the stage at the 2017 Hot 100 Music Festival are Gucci Mane, Young Thug, DJ Khaled, T-Pain, Lil Yachty, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug, Waka Flocka. Sounds pretty dope. Peep the flyer for the festival just below and cop tickets here.
