The latest additions to the lineup for Powerhouse 2023 in Philly have been revealed.
On Friday, September 15, Power 99 made a special announcement about the lineup for the upcoming concert. Ice Spice will now share the stage with other performers like Sexyy Red, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Durk, DJ Diamond Kuts and friends. Philly's own Meek Mill, who's blessed the Powerhouse stage in the past, is also expected to make an appearance at the show. It's only right for the city's leading rap artists Meek and Uzi to be included in the lineup for Powerhouse's 40th anniversary.
Earlier this year, Meek Mill and Lil Uzi Vert's fans were torn amid the debate over the city's official anthem. Ahead of the Super Bowl in February, DJ Drama claimed Uzi's "Just Wanna Rock" was the new anthem for the Philadelphia Eagles over Meek's "Dreams and Nightmares," which held the title for a decade. Shortly after Drama's comments, Meek defended his song's impact on the game and said it's been "lighting the world" and "shaking rooms for years." Uzi ultimately ruled that it's too early too tell.
“That song like been around for a very long time, and that song is still hitting exactly the same way," Uzi told REVOLT. "I’m just gonna have to see, you know, in a couple of years or a decade or whatever. [Meek] that’s a big Homie from Philly, and that’s like one of my big homies.”
Powerhouse 2023 presented by Philly Car Kings is happening on Friday, October 27 at the Wells Fargo Center. Tickets are available now.
