Spotify hosting national RapCaviar concert series

Spotify is converting one of its popular playlists into a concert series dubbed RapCaviar Live. The streaming platform’s RapCaviar playlist has more than 7 million followers, and is the second-biggest global playlist on the service. The first show will happen in Atlanta on August 12, starring Gucci Mane. The event will also have stops in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Toronto. Spotify said it will announce additional dates, performers, and venues soon.

“Taking RapCaviar on the road was just a dream for us a few years ago,” said Tuma Basa, Spotify’s head of hip-hop. “This is an important milestone for Spotify, for RapCaviar, and for hip-hop in the streaming age.”
