Hip hop artists T-Pain and Mike Stud will perform at Northwest Missouri State University Saturday, Nov. 9, for the annual fall concert, the University’s Student Activities Council has announced.

The concert is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Tickets are free for Northwest students and will be available Tuesday, Oct. 1, at the Student Services Center on the first floor of the Administration Building. Each student will receive one ticket after presenting his or her Bearcat Card. Remaining tickets will be available to the public Tuesday, Oct. 15, and will cost $10.

Grammy Award-winning vocalist T-Pain is the night’s headliner. The Tallahassee-based artist is known for hits such as "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’),” “Bartender,” “Can't Believe It” and “Turn All the Lights On.” Since his debut, “Rappa Ternt Sanga,” in 2005, T-Pain has issued three more albums, with 2007’s “Epiphany” and 2008’s “Thr33 Ringz” each peaking at No. 1 on the U.S. R&B charts. T-Pain released his most recent effort, “Revolver,” in 2011, which peaked at No. 7 and featured collaborations with Chris Brown and Lily Allen. For more information about T-Pain, visit    

Once a promising collegiate baseball player, Mike Stud turned to music after a career-ending arm injury. Now, Stud is one of the hottest upcoming musicians on the web. His rookie mixtape, “A Toast to Tommy,” released in 2011, debuted at No. 2 on the U.S. iTunes Hip-Hop Albums chart. He has since amassed nearly 8 million YouTube views and released two more mixtapes. His debut album, “Relief,” was released in May and quickly became the top hip hop album on iTunes. For more information about Stud, visit
