About LUI: 

From the slums of Peru, LUI and his family first had to conquer extreme poverty for the chance of a better life.  “I come from Peru where we don’t envision big goals but are focused on getting enough to eat, making it through the day. I came to America from literally nothing.  My neighborhood back home didn’t even have streets or sidewalks, just dirt.”

As most who share his background, LUI found an escape and inspiration in music. His first memories as a child are as a performer in his family’s music group.  “My first music memory is me dancing at the age of 3 to the music my family was playing one day back in Peru. My uncles played different cultural instruments and I would be the performer.”

At age four, his parents divorced, but not before they’d worked and saved enough to immigrate to the United States. LUI and his mother moved to Virginia, while his father moved to New Jersey. Growing up his mother instilled in him the importance of education, but also continued to feed his passion for music.  Just before he relocated to New Jersey to live with his dad, his mother gifted him with his first guitar, and he wrote his first song.  Even after the move, she would continue to be a driving force in his life.

As things progressed, darker days were on the horizon. Just after he graduated from high school, his mother would succumb to Cancer.  He honored her memory by going to college and pursuing a degree in psychology.  However, no matter where he went in life, his love of music lingered in the back of his mind and soon became too loud to ignore.

“My mom’s number one goal was for me to come to the US and have a better life.  One day in 2018 it clicked for me, her dreams and my passions could co-exist. I realized that music could provide the life my mother dreamed of for me, and I hit the ground running.”

Inspired by artists like Tego Calderon, Michael Jackson, Akon, Eminem, 50cent, Arcangel and Don Omar, LUI is determined to be heard. the bilingual emcee has released 4 complete EPs, “Thoughts in My Head”, “Time to Eat”, “Graduated”, and “Foreigners World”. As he moves his career forward, he leans on the lessons of perseverance learned from his parent’s example. “I’ve watched my mom and dad work harder than anyone I know. They are my inspiration, where I get my drive. I am hungry for success. I believe my only inherent talent, I just don’t give up.”

Before demolition work begins on the Mobile Civic Center Arena this summer, T.I. and Anthony Hamilton will top the bill at an “R&B & Hip Hop Music Fest” announced Friday.

Mayor Sandy Stimpson announced this week that the long-gestating effort to decide what to do with the Civic Center property – whether to upgrade or replace the aging facility – had culminated in a decision. The city aims to begin demolition work in August to clear the way for a new $300 million arena with a maximum seating capacity of just over 10,000. Proponents say the new facility will be able to meet the needs of modern touring productions including concerts and sporting events, as well as Mobile’s Mardi Gras balls. A ribbon cutting on the new venue is currently targeted for January 2027.

If that plan goes forward on schedule, the R&B & Hip-Hop Music Fest will be among the final shows for a hall that has echoed with the music of everyone from Elvis Presley and Led Zeppelin to The Monkees, Elton John and Prince.

According to information released Friday, the R&B & Hip Hop Music Fest will feature T.I., Anthony Hamilton and a reunion of artists associated with T.I.’s Atlanta-based Grand Hustle Records, including Young Dro, Big Kuntry and Mac Boney. The show will take place June 15, a Saturday. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 22, through Ticketmaster, with prices starting at $74 plus fees.

T.I., aka Clifford Harris Jr., is an Atlanta rapper who enjoyed a run of pop crossover success between 2004 and 2009 with top 10 solo hits such as “Bring ‘Em Out,” “What You Know” and “Whatever You Like,” as well as collaborative hits such as “Swagga Like Us” with Jay-Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne; “Live Your Life” with Rihanna; and “Dead and Gone” with Justin Timberlake. He also has numerous TV and film acting credits

Anthony Hamilton’s top R&B singles include “Charlene,” “Struggle No More (The Main Event)” and “Pray for Me.” He also has made his mark as a featured artist on other acts’ songs, with notable examples including Nappy Roots’ “Po’ Folks” and Jadakiss’ “Why.”

As things stand, the fest is the latest concert scheduled for the Civic Center Arena. Others upcoming arena shows include comedian Katt Williams on March 22Kevin Gates on May 9comedian Gabriel Iglesias on May 11 and Judas Priest on May 12.
