Old school meet new school: Well, OK, that may be bit of a stretch but rap worlds will collide when we choose the winner of tickets to not one, but two House of Blues San Diego shows in March!
One of you lucky SoundDiego peeps will win four tickets to see A$AP Ferg on March 15, along with four tickets to Lil Xan on March 25 -- along with a $60 House of Blues Restaurant & Bar dining voucher!
First up: A$AP Ferg rose to prominence after signing a record deal with RCA in 2013 following the respective deals of his A$AP Mob mates A$AP Rocky and (the late) A$AP Yams. In August of 2013, A$AP Ferg's debut album "Trap Lord" debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart -- not too shabby, eh? Later that year, he was named "Rookie of the Year" at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards. In 2016, A$AP Ferg released his sophomore follow-up album, "Always Strive and Prosper," with its lead single "New Level" boasting a guest appearance by none other than Future -- and it'd go on to be certified gold by the RIAA just two months later. Last year, Ferg released his second mixtape called "Still Striving," which features Meek Mill, Cam'ron, Lil Yachty, Playboi Carti, Migos, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, and more. It's safe to say his March 15 show is going to be non-stop bangers.
Next up: Lil Xan. For the unfamiliar, Lil Xan (born Diego Leanos) was raised in Redlands -- just up the road! Taking his moniker from the drug Xanax (which he currently speaks out against using, and often urges people to stop using drugs altogether), he began to gain recognition on SoundCloud and YouTube in 2016. After he released the music video for "Betrayed" last year, it eventually hit No. 64 on the Billboard Hot 100. In an interview with XXL, Leanos announced his debut album "Total Xanarchy" would be releasing soon with Diplo and Swae Lee collabs. While we're waiting for it to drop, go see Lil Xan for yourself on March 25 and get an early peek at those new tracks!
Bottom line: Do yourself a favor and enter now for your chance to win tickets to A$AP Ferg on March 15 and Lil Xan on March 25 at House of Blues; we pull the winner's name on March 14 at noon!
