The best shows in Philly, with Jeezy, Hip-Hop All-Stars, the grand finale of Bowie Week, and more
The concert calendar starts to heat up with the Atlanta rapper at the Met, Public Enemy in Atlantic City, Rhett Miller at City Winery and two choice jazz shows.
This week’s calendar includes rap concerts in North Philly and Atlantic City, jazz in Center City and South Philly, A Night of Stardust at Union Transfer, and the band that plays that “Teenage Dirtbag” song you’ve heard a million times.
The 45-year-old formerly known as “Young Jeezy” lost the first half of his stage name back in 2013 because “[when] those zeroes start adding up, you got to drop the young.” The gruff-voiced Atlanta rapper born Jay Wayne Jenkins started out hip-hop hustling with Boyz n Da Hood in the early ‘00s and has been going solo since Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101in 2005. He announced his retirement in 2019, but that didn’t last. He returned with The Recession 2 in 2020 and Snofall, with DJ Drama, last year. $49-$159, 8 p.m., 1/13, Met Philadelphia, 858 N.
