Best Rap & Hip Hop in Buffalo

New Kids On The Block at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center

New Kids On The Block

In an era where boy bands, girl bands and bubblegum pop stars ruled the roost, New Kids On The Block were the first of the preteen sensations to hit multi-platinum. Expect to hear hits 'Hanging Tough', 'I'll Be Loving You (Forever)', and 'Step By Step'. Join all five members and dance the night away on The Magic Summer 2024 Tour!

Suicide Boys at KeyBank Center

Suicide Boys

Combining a flurry of genres and influences from punk rock icons like the Misfits and Minor Threat with the slick production and sparse, hypnotic beats of hip hop and trap, the Suicide Boys are proving themselves a force to be reckoned with. The duo, comprised of rapping Ruby Da Cherry aka Suicide Leopard and producing Slick Sloth, call their unique fusion horrorcore glitch-trap and are bringing its bone-shaking bass and dark rhymes to you once again!

Jelly Roll at KeyBank Center

Jelly Roll

Nashville native rapper JellyRoll saw his music career kick off in 2010 when his track "Pop Another Pill" with Lil Wyte received over 1 million hits on YouTube. Two years later, he released his debut "The Big Sal Story" and "Whiskey, Weed & Waffle House" in 2013, which famously landed him in a court case with the popular restaurant chain. Today, the rapper has 18 albums under his belt and is preparing to hit the road on the Beautifully Broken tour!

Lil Yachty at Buffalo Outer Harbor

Lil Yachty

Rap superstar Lil Yachty is hitting the road this year, following his successful Field Trip tour. With his wobbly falsetto and off-the-wall fashion sense, Lil Yachty is one of hip-hop's most recognizable singers. His music also marks him out for the crowd, infusing his self-proclaimed 'bubblegum trap' with leftfield samples and hard-hitting 808s.

Pitbull at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center

Pitbull

Even if you're not a fan of club culture or have suffered from a case of agoraphobia for the last decade, chances are still extremely high that you've danced, tapped your foot or sang along to a Pitbull song. The Miami MC has dominated the airwaves ever since the release of his debut album M.I.A.M.I in 2011. Now catch this captain of club anthems LIVE on stage!
