Blavity House Festival Celebrates Black Music Month With Rick Ross, Monica, Dru Hill and More in Nashville



During Black Music Month, Blavity came to Nashville for their first inaugural event bringing local communities together as one. Hosted by Zack Fox and Bridget Kelly, the party kicked off with amazing performances, food and good vibes in the community. The first of many music experience that was presented by Blavity with a two-day multi-stage house party with talented performers, such as, Rick Ross, Monica, Lil’ Mo, Blxst, Dru Hill, Travis Porter, Big Freedia, Freeway and many more at the Municipal Auditorium.

We had the opportunity to drive the Honda Passport TrailSport through the city of Nashville for an adventure. Think of it as a mini-SUV with a nine-speed vehicle that you can go to 60 miles an hour for the first few seconds. By bringing some amazing updates to the vehicle, the Passport makes driving more easier as it has a feature designed for safety and assistance to protect the driver and passengers. It has two rows of seats with a wide cargo space to store large pieces of luggage. The Passport put the “P” in practical but it gives a simple yet luxurious ride. Once you ride in the Passport, the seats are wide and comfortable with a handy armrest that can be adjusted. The backseats are very roomy and it can hold up to five people. The TrailSport has a touchscreen system, it includes a Bluetooth and a wireless smartphone charger pad to play your music while charging your phone if needed.

Big Freedia brought the bounce from New Orleans to the Music City with her style of her bounce followed by her dancers shaking it with the hypeness. She kept the energy high that was featured with endless twerking. Heartthrob Leon Thomas swooned the crowd with his vocals and centric guitar skills. The attendees continue to rise as Dru Hill celebrated the Year of the Dragon with their 25th anniversary. With the crowd to its feet and jumping to the hit single “Tell Me,” Dru Hill put on an amazing show! Lead singer, Sisqo didn’t leave the stage without performing the platinum-selling hit single “Thong Song.” Sisqo lead the group with endless hits such as “These Are the Times,” “In My Bed” and many more as the festival is a must-see. Blxst closed the show by proving that he is one of the rising R&B artist coming out of LA by bringing the West Coast to the South with timeless hits such as “Chosen,” “Gang Slide,” “Be Forreal” and more. The “A Milli” rapper ghosted his fans as he didn’t come out as one of the Friday headliners with no reason.

The second day, Blavity is quick to make-up the disappointment on such an impactful festival so they had made last-minute changes and added special guests that includes Rick Ross, K. Michelle, Lil’ Scrappy. Travis Porter coming back to relive our college-life experience by performing timeless hit records for over a decade and counting. Lil’ Scrappy brought the ‘A’ with him by performing classic hits, such as, “No Problem,” “Neva Eva,” “Money in the Bank” and more.

R&B songstress, K. Michelle performed through a six-minute set performing “Can’t Raise A Man” and “V.S.O.P.” and announced that she is working on her country album. R&B diva, Lil’ Mo invaded the audiences with her throwback hits and participation to the crowd with melodies, pleasant vocals and dance moves. Headliner Monica took us down memory lane with some beloved tracks we all grew up on that includes “So Gone” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life.”

The man of the hour, Rick Ross, as a special guest performed some classic hits that put a little of “Diced Pineapples” on it. He was pouring Belaire in a cup and giving a bottle of Belair to a fan. We noticed that the Miami native rapper music cut short, as he asked the DJ to play the next track. It was silence and they left abruptly.
