UNH students finally have a confirmed spring concert in their future, as Scope announced its long-awaited performer on Monday afternoon.
Rapper Future will take the stage at the Whittemore Center on Friday, April 29. Artists Bas and Cousin Stizz will be the show’s openers.
Holding multiple Billboard spots at the moment, Future’s most notable work is a recent collaborative album with mega-star Drake, and as well as his high volume of released music. Popular songs of his include “Low Life” and “Where Ya At.”
“He has single-handedly shaped the fresh new genre of trap music,” Scope’s Publicity Director Amanda Chabot said. “With the amount of music he continues to release, Future [is becoming] one of the most valued rappers in the industry right now.”
Opener Bas is signed to J. Cole’s Dreamville Records. Cousin Stizz is a local artist, hailing from Boston and signed with WME Records.
Future seemed out of our reach because of his high status in the hip-hop world,” said Caitlin Meaney, Scope publicity member. “He’s definitely at the top of his game; when you think hip-hop, you think Future.”
Tickets for this year’s spring concert will go on sale this Thursday at 8 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at Mubtickets.com.
Doors at the Whittemore Center will open on April 29 at 7 p.m., with the show beginning at 8:30 p.m.
