Comeback concert for the first two US Army Hip Hop artists
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) – Community members gathered at Classic Kickz in Morgantown for a homecoming concert.
Hip Hop on High Street brings together Hip Hop artists to perform live music and share their love for God.
“Hip Hop on High Street is basically movement through music. We want to empower students to have a fun space. They can come and listen to really good music and have a great time,” Riddick said.
Riddick was one of many Hip Hop artists who performed.
However, this event was even more special for Riddick. Riddick and Nicholas Feemster are the first two hip-hop artists in the US Army.
In honor of the return of basic training, they held a comeback concert.
“The special moment of this event is literally the homecoming. We get to get back on stage, to connect with the community after going through the three months, of I don’t mean pain but preparation to be soldiers in the army,” he explained.
Riddick added that he was grateful for the time he spent in basic training and learned many valuable life lessons.
“I just learned to trust your learning team. How to empower people. How to listen to your subscribers. How being a great follower will make you a great leader,” he said.
Community members filled the room and sang along with all the performers.
