Back in November, Rick Ross performed a concert at the Atlanta Symphony Hall on November 4. The rapper performed songs from across his discography accompanied by Orchestra Noir.
Orchestra Noir are an award-winning all-Black symphony, and the event marked the U.S. debut of Red Bull Music Academy’s Red Bull Symphonic initiative. The show also included an intermission from the musical group Sainted and violinist Mapy.
“From the Biggest Boss I’m going to make sure I give y’all an unforgettable and one night only performance,” Ross said in a press release when the show was announced. “Red Bull Symphonic is helping us celebrate heritage, musicians, and more importantly Black excellence. We gonna innovate big that night.”
