This past weekend Clark Atlanta University hosted Def Jams Undisputed Tour, with the lineup of Bobby Sessions, Beau Young Prince, Casanova, Danileigh, Fetty Luciano and YK Osiris.

Def Jams Undisputed focused on bringing the labels household name to some of the top HBCU’s and have students turn up with some of their artist.

Atlanta is a black mecca with some of the most notorious schools within the black community. When you think of HBCU’s you think of Clark Atlanta (CAU), Spelman and Morehouse, which are all located in downtown Atlanta; but if you’re from here we call it the AUC (Atlanta Universities & Colleges).

Def Jam hit the nail right on the head taking their tour to CAU, especially since it was during their homecoming weekend. The homecoming event was packed with celebrities, instalebrities and all sorts of music enthusiast craving Def Jams talent.

Def Jams Bobby Sessions recently is coming off a high after being chosen to write for the upcoming movie ‘The Hate U Give’ starring Amandla Stenberg. During his performance, Sessions gave the crowd some lyrical insight as he covered police brutality on his cypher on stage. Supporting the movie and his own musical production, I would say it is a must listen to Sessions movie soundtrack as well as going to see the movie which comes out October 19, 2018.

Danileigh is another artist on the rise within Def Jam Records. She recently released her music video for her top song right now ‘Lil Bebe.’ The song has caught a lot of attention with it contagious beat, sick drops and lyrical flows. When she performed it at CAU, let’s just say the crowd knew exactly where she was going with it and they even helped her by rapping along. Dani’s future looks bright, she has come a long way from her popular “In My Feelings” dance video now making a name for herself on her own terms and own music.

Each artist came with their own energy performing hit after hit representing the legendary Def Jam Records and letting the people know that there are some new kids on the block, and there going to take the music industry by storm. So if Def Jam is coming to your city, I would say “look cute, have some fun and let the good times come.”
