NASHVILLE, Tenn. (TSU News Service) – The rapper commonly known as K Camp will be the star performer at the Tennessee State University student Homecoming concert at the Gentry Center on Thursday, Sept. 25. He replaces singer August Alsina, who was reportedly injured after a fall while performing at the Irving Plaza in New York a week ago.
According to the Office of Student Activities, all other appearances, including performances by comedian Lil Duval, and rapper, songwriter and record producer Juicy J remain unchanged.
Camp, officially named Kristopher Camp, is best known for the singles “Money Baby” and “Cut Her Off.”
The Milwaukee-born, Atlanta-raised rapper started performing in high school as part of a group called HBC. The group split later, but K Camp took his music a little more seriously, and continued to perform and record on his own.
In 2009, Camp released the party anthem “All Night,” which gained some popularity in Atlanta. He continued to build his reputation through underground releases such as Fan4life, Show Money, and In Due Time, hosted by DJ Drama. “Money Baby” has peaked at #20 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart, #34 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and at #20 on the Rap Songs chart, while “Cut Her Off” featuring 2 Chainz, has peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at #60.
In April 2014, he released the EP In Due Time on Interscope Records.
The TSU concert starts 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, and $15 at the door for students with valid college ID.
