Yo Gotti has released some information on his 8th annual Yo Gotti Friends Birthday bash.
The event will take place at the FedEx Forum Arena on June 19 in Yo Gotti’s hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. While this year’s lineup has not yet been revealed, past Birthday Bash guests included big names like Lil Wayne, YG, Nicki Minaj, Lil Boosie, Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan.
“This year’s Birthday Bash is going to be the best one yet,” Gotti told Complex. “We have special guests and surprises in the works, and I can’t wait for my fans to experience it. This is going to be the greatest party Memphis has ever seen.”
Presale tickets for the event will go on sale Jan. 22 at 10 a.m. CT and will remain available through Jan. 23. “TIDAL” is the presale code for TIDAL users. Fans who are using Ticketmaster can obtain tickets with the presale code “TRAPPED.” General tickets go on sale on Jan. 24 at 10 a.m. CT through Ticketmaster.
Although Yo Gotti likes to party and have fun, he is also an advocate for prison reform.
Gotti and Jay Z recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of mistreated inmates in Mississippi. Gotti sent a letter to former Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant after five men died in three different Mississippi conditions. Gotti wrote that inmates are “forced to live in squalor, with rats that crawl over them as they sleep on the floor, having been denied even a mattress for a cot.” He added that the state’s prison conditions are “absolutely inhumane and unconstitutional.”
A Mississippi prison reform rally is set to take place Jan. 24 at 11 am. The location of the event has yet to be announced.
“Join Team Roc and our partners [Until Freedom,] [REFORM Alliance] [and Color of Change] Friday, January 24th to rally for #msprisionreformnow,” an Instagram post from Team Roc read. “[Mississippi] location will be announced soon. Let your voice be heard as we hold the #MDOC and the state of #Mississippi accountable for their treatment of prisoners at #ParchmanPrison and all other facilities.”
