Student Union Board announced Monday morning that American rapper Fetty Wap will be headlining their Outdoor Concert on April 22.

Fetty Wap will be accompanied by EDM trio Cheat Codes, hip-hop artist Kyle, and R&B singer/songwriter Andreas Moss.

Tickets are on sale now.

Fetty Wap, born Willie Maxwell II, first rose to prominence in early 2015 with his debut single “Trap Queen,” which peaked at number two on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart. The single eventually went platinum and earned the rapper two Grammy nominations for “Best Rap Song” and “Best Rap Performance.”

The rapper’s self-titled debut album was released in September 2015 and featured “679” and “My Way,” which peaked at No. 4 and No. 7 respectively on the Billboard “Hot 100” chart.

Due to this, Fetty Wap joined Eminem and Lil Wayne as rappers who have had three separate songs charting in the top 20 of the “Hot 100” at the same time.

Since 2015, Fetty Wap has released a variety of EPs and mixtapes, but the rapper’s sophomore studio album, titled “King Zoo,” is expected to be released in 2018.

Los Angeles-based DJ trio Cheat Codes started creating music together in 2014 and has been gaining traction in the last few years by releasing a variety of singles with features from popular artists, such as “Feels Great” and “No Promises” which featured Fetty Wap and Demi Lovato, respectively.

The group later joined The Chainsmokers on a sold-out tour across the United States.

Hip-hop artist Kyle is best known for his breakout single “iSpy” which features vocals from Lil Yachty. While Kyle has only released a couple of mixtapes, he has quickly become a known name in the music scene by collaborating with a variety of artists including Chance the Rapper, G-Eazy and Miguel.

In 2015, Kyle was named by Rolling Stone as “one of the ten artists you need to know.”

Nashville-based R&B singer Andreas Moss has only been releasing music since 2016, but has steadily grown a presence on streaming platforms such as Spotify, where his debut single “Thinking About You” garnered over one million streams within a month of its release.

Tickets are $25 with a student ID in advance, $35 with a student ID the week of the show, and $49 to the public.

Tickets can be purchased at the M-Shop box office or online via Midwestix.
