October 23rd @ 8PM
Five Flags Arena
Five Flags Center’s next hip hop showcase, “Midwest Spring Jam,” will feature a trio of popular Midwestern acts. Headliner Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will be joined by guests Lil Flip and Do or Die. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been ranked among the greatest rap groups of all time. The Cleveland-based quintet debuted in 1994, shortly after Eazy-E signed them. The following year, they released their breakout album, “E. 1999 Eternal,” which topped the Billboard albums chart. The album contained the hits “1st of tha Month,” “East 1999,” and “Tha Crossroads,” which would become the group’s best-performing single. It topped Billboard’s Hot 100, Rap, and R&B charts in the summer of 1996. Lil Flip has been a mainstay of the Texas hip hop scene since releasing his self-published debut in 2000. Since then, he’s landed multiple albums in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 200, and has cracked the top ten of the singles charts numerous times. His most successful single to date was 2004’s “Sunshine” featuring Lea, which climbed all the way to #2 on the pop singles chart. Among the most prolific artists in rap history, Lil Flip has also contributed verses to songs by the likes of DMX, Pitbull, Beyonce, and Nelly. Chicagoans Do or Die are also longtime veterans of that city’s hip hop landscape. Their first mainstream success came in 1996, when their debut single “Po Pimp” reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 while topping the publication’s Rap chart.
