If there was ever a modern Hip-Hop star that would sound at home with a symphony, it would be Rick Ross. The pairing of worlds will make its debut this November in the form of the Red Bull Symphonic.

News of the Red Bull Symphonic was announced earlier today (August 25) and establishes a connection between the sounds of Hip-Hop and the classical music sounds of the symphony. The one-time special event will take place in Atlanta and pairs the Biggest Bawse with the all-Black symphony, Orchestra Noir, along with a pair of supporting acts.

The concept of Red Bull Symphonic simply merges the opulent style of Rozay with lush arrangements from Orchestra Noir, a sound not at all unfamiliar to the Maybach Music Group honcho as evidenced by some of his past works.

Conductor Jason Ikeem Rodgers will lead the symphony and the intermission performance will feature SAINTED, described as a  “musical group and trap choir party” from the minds of DJ Fannie Mae and Dennis Reed. Also in the evening, attendees will be treated to the sounds of the “Violin Queen,” Mapy.

From the looks of it, Ross is definitely ready to share his lavish stylings atop the sounds of Orchestra Noir.

“From The Biggest Boss I’m going to make sure I give y’all an unforgettable and one night only performance. Red Bull Symphonic is helping us celebrate heritage, musicians, and more importantly Black excellence. We gonna innovate big that night,” Ros shared in a statement.

“Orchestra Noir is a magnificent representation of the unparalleled musical talent Atlanta has to offer. 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,” added Rodgers.
