The concert takes place March 28 at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California.
“This year’s Paid Dues line-up is very special to me because we have acts like Tech N9ne and Atmosphere who I’ve been big fans of and also trying to book forever. The So-Cal return of E & A, who haven’t played the NOS since the legendary Wu Tang reunion at the 2004 Rock The Bells. Cage, B-Real and G & E who all have new records dropping this spring. And there’s nothing like being the first to see your favorite artist do their new material. On the other side of things, myself and the entire GU staff will be diligent to provide the same high quality live music experience Guerilla Union has become known for over the years. I just can’t believe this is our fourth year! I am so thankful to all our family, friends and supporters. And I look forward to making this March 28th another great and memorable moment in hip hop history,” states Murs.
Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union adds, “Now into the fourth year, we are extremely proud that we have continued to partner with Murs to showcase and support independent hip-hop year-in and year-out. We are truly committed to providing our fans the best show and experience that we can possibly put together. This year’s lineup represents some of the most notable and up-and-coming artists from the independent circuit. Fans will also be treated to new music from several acts as the festival maintains to be a live promotional platform for the artists that we work with. I can’t wait to see all these acts. I truly believe this is the biggest and best line-up yet for PAID DUES.”
