Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) is considering 11 hip-hop acts for a spring concert, according to a document obtained by Mustang News.

ASI Events Director Missi Bullock would not confirm the list of potential acts, which includes Atmosphere, Hoodie Allen, Chance The Rapper, Mike Posner, MGK, Fabolous, K’Naan, Sammy Adams, Theophilus London, Shaggy and Timeflies. Bullock also did not confirm whether ASI is set on hip-hop.

“Those lists are generated by students,” Bullock said. “So there’s a longer list and it gets slowly whittled down by availability or price point.”

ASI makes an offer on an artist or band, but it doesn’t guarantee the act, she said.

In an Oct. 2013 Mustang News article, Bullock said the cost of booking bands such as Macklemore and Green Day would nearly reach $100,000, with the show’s total cost nearly depleting ASI’s budget for events.
