Back 2 School Jam feat. Future, Curren$y and More

Several hip hop heavyweights play UGA’s Stegeman Coliseum on Saturday as part of what is being billed, appropriately, as a “Back 2 School Jam.” The show, which is being promoted by local production company Sky City, promises to feature Atlanta rapper and mainstream radio mainstay Future (he of “Turn on the Lights” and “Same Damn Time” fame), as well as popular Decatur trio Travis Porter, long-running New Orleans weed-rap phenom Curren$y, MC and model Chanel West Coast and upstart Atlanta talent Que. The whole shebang will be hosted by former UGA All-American defensive end and New England Patriot Marcus Stroud.

5 p.m. $65 (floor), $45 (general admission).
