Savannah’s 9Twelve Entertainment, a recording studio and production company, is hosting the second annual Summertime Jump Off youth concert featuring a performance by Street Bud.
The annual event bookmarks the end of the school year and is focused on providing a space for Savannah youth to have a fun outlet. Last year’s star performers, Ayo + Teo, danced with Usher for his video “No Limit” before being signed to Columbia Records with their hit single, “Rolex.”
"Last year’s Summertime Jump Off concert proved that Savannah’s youth need a safe outlet to have fun and enjoy the music they love,” Robby Newsome, president of 9Twelve Entertainment, said in a press release. “This year, we have secured nationally known artists again, like Street Bud, while giving local talent a medium to showcase their abilities on the same stage.”
At 12 years old, Street Bud won the fourth season of Jermaine Dupri’s “The Rap Game," making him the television show's youngest winner. Now 14, Street Bud’s single “No Cap” has nigh 1 million views on YouTube. Street Bud will be joined at the Summertime Jump Off concert by Atlanta girl group Hollywood Dollz and 12-year-old Savannah rapper I Am Drip. The show will be hosted by social media influencer King Roy.
The concert will also feature an artist showcase, where local talent will perform in a competition meant to expose them to popular artists and a local audience. The winner of the showcase, hosted by the Lit Lifestyle Podcast, will receive a free recording session at 9Twelve Studios, which includes mixing and mastering of one song. All musical styles are invited to compete.
General admission is $25, with two VIP packages at $35 and $45, the latter including a meet and greet with headliners. Food and drinks will also be available.
