The411 with Sherlene Shanklin: It’s time to check in and see how the artists are doing that performed at this year’s Derby Soundstage 2018 in Louisville on Thursday, May 3rd at Broadbent Arena hosted by Liv Suite.
They had a dynamic trio of 2 Chainz, K. Michelle and Lil Wayne. Three unique chart-topping sounds all under one roof. Let’s see what they have been up too since their Kentucky Derby show.
It’s definitely been a busy summer for rap artist 2 Chainz. Just days after the concert in Louisville, he attended the Met Gala and while on the Red Carpet he took to his knee to let the world know that he would marry his wife Kesha all over again by proposing. They have been married since 2013 and have three children. His new smash hit Bigger Than You features Drake and Quavo. 2 Chainz will be in London on July 14 and his next U.S. concert will be on July 22 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
K. Michelle was in great spirits when she was in Louisville. She thanked the fans for their support while she was out recovering from two blood transfusions and several surgeries due to the removal of silicone injections.
As she continues to recover, the R& B artist’s album Kimberly: The People I Used To Know continues to do well and her fans are excited to see her on Love and Hip Hop.
She’s teasing on her Instagram page that we need to watch on July 23. I’m sure she’s getting a cast member all worked up and upset. We’ll have to wait and see.
And Lil Wayne closed the Louisville show and fans loved the live elements in his show by the drummer.
This artist’s drive is in “Trukfit” mode. He’s working on a Fall release date for has a new album, Tha Carter V and he even signed two players to his Young Money Sports Management.
One of his artist’s Drake released an album last week that has a song regarding the Louisville basketball scandal plus Drake used a couple of songs on his album from Louisville native, the late Stephen “Static Major” Garrett. Wayne will perform in his hometown of New Orleans on Saturday, August 25.
Check out the footage I was able to get on the three artists while in Louisville. A big thanks to Gerry Cooper for editing the video.
