Power106 Reveals Annual Powerhouse Concert Lineup

Currently having a major FOMO moment.  Why?  Well because I will not be in LA for Powerhouse this year.  SAD.  I can’t really complain that much though because that weekend I’ll be in Miami with two of my BFFs and I’m more than likely attending Rolling Loud Festival.  I digress.

This year’s Powerhouse falls on Cinco de Mayo weekend which is typically early than previous years.  It’s going down on Saturday, May 6 at the Glen Helen Amphitheater.

Let me just say though that the lineup is one big fire emoji.  Big Sean and Lil Wayne headlining?!  Do you even know how many live bangers that will come out of this concert?  “My Homies Still.”  “Beware.”  “Deep.”  And so many more.  Ugh.  I guess I can’t go to everything, but it still hurts a bit.  It’s the fangirl in me.

Kid Ink, Jeremih, Post Malone, MadeinTYO, too?!  You know Big Sean and MadeinTYO will perform the “Skateboard P” remix together.  Amazing.


Congrats to the Power team on an epic lineup!  Want to get more amped up about it?  Watch the promo vid here, and get your tickets this Friday so I can live vicariously through your social feeds.

Happy Monday, yinz!

“I Decided” to post about my #CruzShowVIP Experience…

On Monday, I was given the opportunity to attend a VIP Big Sean experience at the one and only Power 106 FM radio station – the most poppin’ hip-hop radio station in LA might I add.  No more than 50 fans were in attendance, keeping the experience very intimate.  Love those types of scenarios.  Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Big Sean, I mingled with some of the Power crew. Dope people.  Okay, love you guys but back to the main attraction…

*enter big sean*

The Cruz Show team asked Sean various questions about his new album “I Decided” (go out and cop that / stream it if you haven’t already – fire) and about him as an artist and person.  Fans were also given the chance to ask questions.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again and not knowing him personally, Big Sean seems to be one of the most humble and real people out there.  Especially as a rapper, that is very refreshing to witness and makes me like and appreciate him that much more.  He also seems very respectful, level-headed, and seems to be all about positivity.  I mean, read my Tweet in my header image.  When he said that, my heart and mind were instantly full.

One fan in particular asked about the competition / comparing himself to other artists. Snippets of his answer below.  And what’s even better is this advice can translate to your life. Take it in!

“Once you feel good on the inside, you’ll feel good on the outside.”

“In the race of life, you’re only going to slow down when you look at them.”  [“them” referring to everyone else]

“Don’t compare yourself.  They’re not you.”

Much respect for Sean Don.

Shout out again to Power 106 and specifically Ashley for the invite.  She’s funny AF so follow her.  And if you live in LA, you best keep your ears open because this isn’t the first VIP Experience they’ve hosted.  Listen to Power for your chance to win and go to the next one.  I mean, it can get you a picture like this…

Lineup:  Power 106 Announces Cali Christmas Stars!

Christmas came early!  The lineup for Power 106’s 2015 #CaliChristmas was announced this morning at 7:20am on #TheCruzShow.


While the lineup may seem smaller compared to previous years, I feel these are some high-profile artists.  Quality vs. quantity, ya dig!  And who knows the special guests they will bring out!  I mean, Pharrell can bring out Snoop to ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot,’ Wiz may bring out Rae Sremmurd for ‘Burn Slow,’ and I’m hoping so much that Dej Loaf brings out fellow Detroit native Big Sean to perform ‘Back Up.’  Those are just my predictions. 🙂

Great job again, Power!  I have always looked forward to Cali Christmas since my first time attending in 2011 – also the very first time I saw Drake perform.  All the feels.

Presale tickets go on sale this Thursday at 10AM.  Get the password by downloading the free Where Hip Hop Lives app here.

Happy Monday!
