Rick Ross has announced a very special concert at the Atlanta Symphony Hall on November 4. The rapper will perform songs from across his discography accompanied by a full-on orchestra. Orchestra Noir are an award-winning all-Black symphony, and the event marks the U.S. debut of Red Bull’s Red Bull Symphonic initiative. The show will also include an intermission from the musical group Sainted and violinist Mapy. Watch a teaser for the show at Instagram.
“From the Biggest Boss I’m going to make sure I give y’all an unforgettable and one night only performance,” Ross remarked in a press release. “Red Bull Symphonic is helping us celebrate heritage, musicians, and more importantly Black excellence. We gonna innovate big that night.”
“Orchestra Noir is a magnificent representation of the unparalleled musical talent Atlanta has to offer,” Jason Ikeem Rodgers, music director of Orchestra Noir, added. “We celebrate the artistic achievements of Black music pioneers across all genres, bringing sounds of the symphony to diverse, new, and young audiences—and are thrilled to be able to collaborate and perform with Rick Ross to continue uplifting these outstanding musicians.”
Ross released his last album, Richer Than I Ever Been, at the end of 2021; it featured the Jazmine Sullivan–featuring single “Outlawz.” Ross was recently fined for labor law violations at multiple Wingstop franchises owned by his company Boss Wings Enterprises LLC.
