Controversial rapper 6ix9ine will perform in Dubai – and he’s bringing friends

The concert at Coca-Cola Arena will also feature Kojo Funds, Polo G and NLE Choppa.

Hip-hop fans, we have some big news. Controversial rapper 6ix9ine is coming to Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on 11 November – and he’s bringing friends. The event forms part of the Sundance DXB Vol. 4 – Hip-Hop Edition, and here’s how you can get your hands on tickets.

Known for his distinctive appearance and polarising music, Brooklyn-born rapper 6ix9ine’s rise to fame has been marked by both admiration and criticism. Known for his rainbow-coloured hair, heavily tattooed appearance, and energetic performances, 6ix9ine gained significant attention with his debut single, Gummo, which went viral in 2017. He has since released several successful songs, including FEFE and TROLLZ, which featured fellow rapper Nicki Minaj. While his off-stage antics have caused much furore, his star still appears to be on the rise. 

British-Ghanaian artist Kojo Funds will join him on the night. Kojo has made significant waves in the UK music scene with his unique blend of Afrobeat, dancehall, and rap. Known for his infectious melodies, catchy hooks, and distinctive vocal delivery, his hit tracks include Dun Talkin’ and Check, a collaboration with Raye.

Polo G will also join the fun. The American rapper and songwriter from Chicago embodies raw storytelling and poignant lyrics in his tracks, which include Finer Things and Pop Out, featuring fellow Chicago rapper Lil Tjay. The popular rapper has also worked with Future, Lil Baby and Gunna.

NLE Choppa, who collaborated with Polo G on the 2020 track Go Stupid, will also take to the Coca-Cola Arena stage. The rising American rapper uses a blend of gritty street lyrics and conscious, introspective themes in his music. His stage name, NLE, stands for “No Love Entertainment,” and Choppa reflects his lyrical sharpness and skill. His hit tracks include Shotta Flow and Walk Em Down, and he’s collaborated with Latto, Lil Baby, Macklemore and Moneybagg Yo.

If you love live hip-hop, you’re in for a treat because an exciting range of artists are coming to the UAE. Sean Paul and T.I. will perform in Coca-Cola Arena on 21 October, Macklemore will perform at the same venue on 28 October, Dizzee Rascal will perform at Emirates Golf Club on 28 October, 50 Cent will perform at Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on 21 December, and Wireless Festival Middle East takes place at Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Park in March 2024. 

Tickets to see 6ix9ine, Kojo Funds, Polo G and NLE Choppa are on sale now and start from AED 199.
