HBCU's and incredible Homecoming Events

HBCU's have an incredible history of top tier talent performing at Homecoming shows, showcasing some of the absolute best in entertainment. Perhaps none stand out as much though, as North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University (NC A&T), whose festivities have become known as GHOE - Greatest Homecoming on Earth.

And if any school can live up to such a mantle for Homecoming, it's definitely the Aggies.

Since 2012, often supported by Campus Consciousness or Verge Tour properties, the Aggies homecoming shows in both comedy and concerts have included J. Cole (twice), Kendrick Lamar, Future, Wale, Rae Sremmurd, Marlon Wayons, Jay Pharoah, Deray Davis, Migos, and Gucci Mane. Any arena that had that caliber of talent would be incredibly well respected, not to mention a college. The Aggie's fine eye for talent has made their Homecoming the most envied in the nation. And the trend continues this year.

Headlining 2018's Homecoming are Cardi B. and 2 Chainz, directly supported by Ella Mai and Lil Baby, and the comedy show will feature a live show of Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out from MTV.

We've got to give to the Aggie's here. Check back in later today for an update to this story featuring more performances from top talent at HBCU's.
