Rick Ross and John Blu Added to Last Damn Show 12 at the St. Pete Times Forum August 28

Last Damn Show 12, presented by Wild 94.1, will return to the St. Pete Times Forum on Saturday, August 28 at 6:00 p.m.  Rick Ross and John Blu are the latest additions to a star-studded lineup featuring hip-hop sensation Gucci Mane as the headliner.
Rick Ross rose from ruling Miami’s underground rap scene to become the buzz-worthiest hip-hop artist of 2006 with his major label debut album, Port of Miami.  Its unstoppable single “Hustlin’” became the first mastertone ever certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales of one million copies before the associated album had even been released.  A remix was subsequently issued, featuring Jay-Z and Young Jeezy.  Six-foot-two, 300-pound Rick Ross – a “hip-hop heavyweight,” as described by The New York Times – came into his own on his album Trilla with the song “The Boss,” featuring T-Pain. The single rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot Rap chart, #5 R&B, and Top 20 on the Hot 100. Trilla got off to a fast start with a release-week performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live
John Bluford, professionally known as “John Blu,” started singing at an early age in church. Along with his vocal talents, musical talents and experience, John Blu is gifted with the ability to write, compose and produce his own music. He has performed in high schools, colleges, clubs, theaters, and outdoor festivals all over the Midwest, and has also performed with some of the top artists in the industry. In 2001, John Blu released his CD Reverse Psychology, which experienced substantial sales in the Chicago area. He has collaborated with many artists throughout Chicago (producing, arranging, writing and singing on multiple songs). He is currently promoting his hip-hop collaboration single “Flyboy”, along with the accompanying video.
Last Damn Show features a collection of today's hottest hip-hop and R&B artists, including Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Blu, Mystikal, J.Cole and Miguel. Additional artists will be announced at a later date.
