Twista, Killer Mike and Hurricane Chris to Headline The Jena 6 Empowerment Concert

Twista, Killer Mike and Hurricane Chris among Artist Schedule to Headline The Jena 6 Empowerment Concert.

A group of hip hop artists that include Twista, Killer Mike and Hurricane Chris, are scheduled to headline in Birmingham, Al later this month for the “Jena 6” Empowerment Concert. The show was conceived as a way to give the artist a chance to address the issues behind the high profile Jena 6 incident.

In the case, six African American students in Jena, LA were, some say unjustly and excessively charged with attempted murder after they assaulted a white student who had hurled racial insults at them.

The concert is scheduled for Sept 29th in Birmingham Al. Also scheduled to perform are Baby Boy, Sean P of the YoungBloods, DTP’s Small world and R&B artist Lloyd and Jagged Edge.

Tickets are available at the concert’s venue, the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Center, and online at ticketmaster.com.
