Candy paint dripping. Wood grain gripping. If you had to paint a picture of southern hip hop, it would look like the 97.9 the Beat Monster Energy DUB Car Show & Concert. Witness everything that makes Texas uniquely trill : custom cars, rims, the swaggiest gear, and of course an all star line up legends and the hottest newcomers representing the southern sound. On Sunday, September 9, thousands of fans of all ages poured in to the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Downtown Dallas for the nations largest car show and concert.
The car show featured a huge collection of exotic, luxury, tuner, low rider and muscle cars plus motorcycles and trucks. Dozens of vendors passed out free swag. The audience of this show is extremely diverse as it show attracts car lovers, music fans, teens, adults and families.
This year’s line up was nothing short of epic. Hosted by the crew from the Veda Loca Morning Show , the concert was headlined by the snowman himself, Jeezy and featured Blac Youngsta, Blocboy JB, Lil Baby, Yella Beezy, DSR, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Paul Wall, Lil KeKe, Dorrough Music, Trapboy Freddy, Lil Ronnie, MO3, Flexinfab, Bobby Sessions, Mikey McFly, and Camp Zero .
Dallas native Yella Beezy made his first appearance at the event after having a stand out year, breaking into the national circuit after collaborating with other car show artist, Lil Baby.
Even with a lineup of major artists with a Rolodex of hits, BlocBoy JB not so quietly stole the show. Perhaps, he has something to prove amidst the controversy with his “Shoot Dance” and the Fortnite video game, but BlocBoy earned our vote as this year’s car show best performance. His energy was unmatched and the crowd definitely co-signed.
If you’ve never been to Dallas and want a snapshot of what the culture is about, the 97.9 the Beat Monster Energy DUB Car Show & Concert is your Polaroid of the 214 and it’s an event we cosign! See our recap below:
Thank you to the good people over at 97.9 The Beat For The Opportunity
