Mannie Fresh Performs at Red Bull Concert

It’s not easy breaking into the music industry. But for rising artists who just want to get their music heard, Red Bull is making their dreams come true.

Every month since February, Red Bull Sound Select has been giving local talents in big cities like New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Nashville and Chicago the opportunity to perform in a live showcase for their hometown fans.

Each show features three up-and-coming artists and one well known headliner on one stage making for one dope night.

Last Thursday, Chicago’s own Fake Shore Drive brought the Red Bull Sound Select to Reggie’s Rock Club in the South Loop. Chicagoans packed out the spot and showed love to local rappers such as Giftz, Lucki Eck$ and Z Money.

Not to mention, those who stayed for the main attraction were treated to a rare walk down CashMoney memory lane and DJ set from artist/producer Mannie Fresh. Needless to say, it was worth the $10 cover they were charging. was in the building to see it all go down. Witness the fun times below. If you happened to miss out, visit to see when’s the next showcase in your city.
