Admission to the show is $5 per person, and proceeds will benefit the Claremore Head Start program and the OBEA. efreshments and t-shirts will be available for sale, and door prizes will be given away.

The concert is scheduled to run for five hours and will feature 10 local hip-hop and rap artists from the Tulsa area. Scheduled to perform are: Big Ric, 4 Blocc, Sidewayz Entertainment, The Burglar, C-Note, Kayka Momma, YNG Banks (Young Banks), Young Huss of Feetwet Entertainment, Chozen Figgaz and Wabahacha.
