Hip Hop Cowboys, the only rodeo event to mix urban music with cowboy culture, readies itself for a triumphant return to Mesquite Arena on Saturday, March 16. This event combines the sport of rodeo with hip hop, rap, blues and house music, and will feature hip-hop sensation Mystikal and blues artist Sir Charles Jones, as well as dozens of the top rodeo competitors from across the country. The event has the support of K104 radio legend and performer DJ Bay Bay.
“Hip Hop Cowboys is about living life in the way that you can here in Texas,” said Damon Leffall, CEO of Hip Hop Cowboys. “This event opens a lot of eyes and minds to rodeo and also to new musical artists that are taking the best of the south, from our music to our sports, and remixing it in their own way. The event is non-stop entertainment. You can’t miss it.”
Tickets are on sale now for the event, which will be held at Mesquite Arena at 1818 Rodeo Drive in Mesquite on Saturday, March 16. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. with a grand entry rodeo parade. The rodeo action begins immediately, featuring exciting events such as bull riding, team roping, bareback riding, steer wrestling and lady’s barrel racing. Hip Hop Cowboys will also include relay racing, a fast-paced rodeo event that thrills the crowd with its non-stop action of riders on horseback racing each other around the arena in relay style. Hip Hop Cowboys is an open rodeo that will feature the top 10 best competitors in each event. Kids in the audience can participate in the fun with a calf scramble and the wild, bucking sport of mutton bustin’.
