After four years of silence, Paid Dues is back. The iconic west coast celebration of all things hip-hop is coming back to Southern California, with two dates scheduled for the weekend of September 16 and 17. Moving out of the Inland Empire, Paid Dues is now being pushed as a “Los Angeles Hip Hop Festival.”
Set to take place at downtown LA’s Pershing Square, Paid Dues 2017 will feature performances from Lil Wayne, Ab-Soul, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, Mozzy, Freddie Gibbs, Nipsey Hussle, Jay Worthy, G Perico, P-Lo and others. Now promoted and put together by Murs’ promotional outfit and Eventbrite, Paid Dues appears to no longer be associated with the Guerilla Union brand that birthed it.
Courtesy of a tweet from the official Paid Dues Twitter account, you can check out the lineup below; expect tickets to go on sale soon. Festival headliner Lil Wayne will have a lot to promote, as he’s currently mounting a comeback and fresh off the release of a new EP.
