Just as his debut album hits No. 1 on the Billboard Hip-Hop chart, rapper YG now hits the road, bringing the My Krazy Life Tour to his fans across the country. Straight from the same Compton streets that produced N.W.A. 25 years ago comes Keenon Jackson, aka Young Gangsta aka YG. In an era when many hip-hop acts are built beat-by-beat in the studio, YG is an authentic talent, both a brash and brilliant freestyle rapper and a polished, multi-platinum commercial act. Now, after releasing a string of hit singles (including "My Hitta" and "Who Do You Love?" with Drake), he has released his first full-length studio album, My Krazy Life. Hailed as "impressive" by The New York Times and a "masterpiece" by Spin, YG's album, like YG himself, seems destined for hip-hop immortality. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Jazz Education, Inc.Jazz Education Inc. (JEI) was founded by Jazz artist Bubbha Thomas, who saw a need to fill a void where music education and youth were concerned. With a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts, he started an 8-week "Summer Program for Youthful Musicians" at St. James Episcopal Church. Seventy students attended the first FREE session. Since then, JEI has grown from a part-time-one-program project to a daily operation with full and part-time employees. The roster of activities ranges from mini-performances featuring national artists to annual programs ranging from an in-school educational program serving more than 30,000 elementary school children to a five-week workshop-serving more than 200 teenagers (middle school through college age) to an International Jazz Festival.
To date, JEI has earned recognition on the local, regional, national, and international levels as one of the most stable and consistent forces in the effort to create a wider audience for Jazz. The organization has been the recipient of many honors including the American Can, Centering the Arts, the Barbara Jordan Award and a Certificate of Congressional Recognition in tribute to its many years of splendid service to the community.
Jazz Education Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization sponsoring three main programs (The Jazz & Poetry Series, Summer Jazz Workshop, The Houston International Jazz Festival) and several special projects. Jazz & Poetry is an educational/enrichment program helping elementary school children develop an early appreciation for music. The Summer Jazz Workshop produces many of America's top young music talents through a combination of master classes, lectures, small and large ensembles, video presentations, and demonstrations. The Houston International Jazz Festival; which features international, national, regional, and local Jazz musicians, enhances Houston's reputation as an arts center and attracts Jazz aficionados worldwide.
