FEATURING YING YANG TWINS, CHINGY, PETEY PABLO, TWISTA AND BOW WOW
Get ready to turn up, Tampa Bay – throwback legends Ying Yang Twins are set to headline the Turnt Up Tour, coming to Tampa’s USF Sun Dome on Thursday, May 17 at 8:00 PM. Other artists currently scheduled to appear include Chingy, Petey Pablo, Twista and Bow Wow.
The Ying Yang Twins, consisting of Kaine and D-Roc, debuted in 2000 and rose to mainstream popularity in 2003, collaborating with Britney Spears on her album In the Zone, and with Lil Jon on “Get Low.” In 2004 and 2005, Ying Yang Twins became more popular with party singles “Salt Shaker”, “What’s Happnin,” “Shake” and “Badd.” They have received notoriety for their song “Halftime (featuring Homebwoi)” which is played at New Orleans Saints home games after most touchdowns.
Chingy grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and began rapping in earnest in his late teens. He toured as an opening act with Nelly in the summer of 2002, and then became a protégé of Ludacris, who signed him to his newly formed Disturbing Tha Peace (DTP) record label. The rapper’s 2003 summer debut single, “Right Thurr,” put him on the musical map as a good-time rapper who specialized in catchy, club-friendly beats. Chingy’s 2003 debut album, Jackpot, sold two million copies, thanks to the boost from “Right Thurr.” A second album, Powerballin’, was released in 2004 to mixed reviews, and his 2006 release Hoodstar spawned the hit singles “Pullin’ Me Back” and “Dem Jeans.” He released Hate It or Love It in 2007 under DTP records, with lead single “Fly Like Me,” featuring Amerie. A studio album entitled Success & Failure was released in 2010.
