Red Lake rapper Baby Shel gets ready to rock Amsoil Arena
April 14, 2023
DULUTH - 2015 was a big year for Baby Shel. He won a battle of the bands at First Avenue in Minneapolis, he played South By Southwest, he was soon to be featured in a documentary about Red Lake hip-hop, and he opened for Machine Gun Kelly at the DECC Arena.
Now it's 2023, and he's headed to Amsoil Arena.
"I'm expecting the same energy," Shel told the News Tribune about his Friday, April 21, show. "My first arena show was like that night-before-Christmas energy ... I know how the Northlands get when it comes to hip-hop, and they really show up."
Baby Shel is both performing and emceeing the hip-hop concert, which is headlined by Kevin Gates and Waka Flocka Flame. Kelly Iris will also perform.
