The eighth annual One Musicfest took place at the Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA on September 9th 2017. This year’s Musicfest was headlined by a host of platinum selling artists including Ro James, Too $hort, and Jidenna, who performed in the earlier part of day. Jidenna performed his hits “Classic Man” and “Bambi”. Music artist Pastor Troy, 8ball & MJG, Damien Marley and Migos also performed in the middle of the show.
Pastor Troy put on a show for his hometown crowd and 8ball & MJG performed a lot of hits that made them one of the best rap duos in the rap game. Migos represented for Atlanta with hits such as “T-Shirt”, “Bad and Boujee”, “Slippery”, “Fight Night” , “Versace” and more. Migos brought out Jacquees to perform B.E.D. and the crowd went crazy for his brief appearance.
Yasiin Bey known to most people as Mos Def had his farewell concert. Bey definitely put on a great show for the crowd with this being his final performance of his musical career. After many great performances by different artists, Jill Scott closed out the One Musicfest. Scott not only put on a great performance, but makes it a priority to talk to and interact with her fans. The One Musicfest is definitely something to look forward to for next year, and something that all music fans would enjoy.
