J. Kelly Performs at FSU Hip Hop Showcase
J. Kelly is an artist who jumps at the opportunity to represent not only his community, but also represent the culture. Florida State University’s Sociology of Hip Hop professor Dr. Lisa Munson Weinberg, in partnership with Garages on Gaines, hosted a Hip Hop showcase that featured several artists including J. Kelly. Other artists performing that evening included Stess the Emcee, Rictacular, Cap 6 and DJ A to the L on the turntables. The event was free and open to the public.
Although the weather was cold, J. Kelly definitely managed to bring the heat. He successfully captured and engaged his audience with his presence and powerful lyricism. He kept the audience singing along and vibing from start to finish. He even took a moment to address some serious issues in an acapella breakdown in between two of his songs. Check out a couple of clips from the event in the video above. Stay Tuned to HipHopCulture.TV for future J. Kelly performances and exclusives.
