Headlining acts Lil Wayne, Lauryn Hill and Meek Mill will soon be joined by several of their peers for the 4th annual “TIDAL X: Brooklyn” benefit concert on October 23 at the Barclays Center.
This year’s show will raise money to support criminal justice reform, a cause that has been close to Meek’s heart ever since his release from prison this Spring. Over the past three years, “TIDAL X” benefit concerts have collected over $10 million for social justice, disaster relief/recovery, and education causes.
Other acts on the bill include Anderson.Paak, Pusha T, Normani, Kodak Black, Teyana Taylor, Bazzi, Lil Skies, Black Thought, Queen Naija, The Lox, Vic Mensa, BlocBoy JB and more.
Tickets are on sale now at the benefit concert’s site.
