HOT 107.9 Birthday Bash 13

Hip-hop’s all-stars took the stage at HOT 107.9’s Birthday Bash 13, the biggest hip-hop concert in the South, at Atlanta’s Philips Arena on Saturday. Concertgoers got their money’s worth with performances from T.I., Kanye West, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Shawty Lo, The Game, Plies, and Soulja Boy. Jeezy even brought out Usher as his special guest.

When Shawty Lo hit the stage, the image on the screen read, “A New King is Born,” challenging T.I.’s “King of the South” title. T.I. referenced the beef with Lo during his headlining set when he shouted out, “This is my Birthday Bash! I own this shit!”
