Dreamville Festival 2024: 50 Cent Steps in as Replacement for Chris Brown

    Dreamville Festival, created by rapper J. Cole, is set to kick off this weekend at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 6th and 7th. The festival, known for its stellar lineup and vibrant atmosphere, has recently made some exciting additions and adjustments, promising an unforgettable experience for attendees.

    One of the most significant updates is the inclusion of 50 Cent as a co-headliner for the opening day on April 6th, joining forces with SZA to close out the evening. This announcement comes amidst slight changes to the lineup, with up-and-coming Atlanta rapper Hunxho also joining the bill and scheduled to perform on Sunday, April 7th.

    These additions come as replacements for R&B stars Chris Brown and Muni Long, who unfortunately had to withdraw from the festival due to unforeseen circumstances. Despite these changes, excitement remains high as festival organizers gear up to deliver an electrifying weekend of music and entertainment.

    Originally unveiled last month, the Dreamville Festival lineup features an impressive array of talent, including Nicki Minaj, ScHoolboy Q, Jeezy, Sexyy Red, Lil Yachty, Rae Sremmurd, Sexyy Red, Teezo Touchdown, Rema, Luh Tyler, Jeremih, , monica, key glock, Bas, Amaarae, TiaCorine, Chase Shakur, Domani, T.I. and Tiny son, and more. Fans can also look forward to performances from Dreamville artists such as JID, EarthGang, Bas, Cozz, Lute, Omen, and, of course, J. Cole himself.

    In addition to the main event at Dorothea Dix Park, the festival will also host a series of free events and educational programs across the city of Raleigh in the week leading up to the festivities. This holistic approach reflects Dreamville’s commitment to not only providing exceptional entertainment but also fostering community engagement and enrichment.

    The decision to enlist 50 Cent as a last-minute headliner comes as no surprise to fans, especially considering his recent collaboration with J. Cole at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center during 50’s Final Lap Tour. It was during this memorable performance that Cole paid homage to 50 Cent, hailing his iconic album “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” as the “best album of all time,” even surpassing Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in his estimation.

    While their collaboration on the track “New York Times” in 2013 showcased their chemistry, it’s intriguing to note that their partnership could have been even deeper had 50 Cent signed Cole to G-Unit earlier in his career. In a revealing interview on The Breakfast Club in 2022, 50 Cent explained his decision, citing concerns about the demand for a “conscious” rapper like Cole in a landscape dominated by street-oriented music at the time.

    Despite this missed opportunity, both artists have continued to thrive in their respective careers, with Dreamville Festival 2024 serving as a testament to their enduring impact on the hip-hop community. As fans eagerly anticipate the weekend festivities, they can rest assured that Dreamville Festival will deliver an experience filled with unforgettable performances, camaraderie, and celebration of the culture.
