Nicki Minaj, Moneybagg Yo and Kodak Black are just some of the names announced to be performing at a pair of Powerhouse events set to take place next month.

Powerhouse 2022 has announced its live music event will return to Philadelphia and New Jersey this October 28 and 29 respectively.

The New Jersey lineup so far includes performances from Kodak Black, Fivio Foreign, Moneybagg Yo, Tems and SpinKing and Friends, with more to be announced at a later date.

The Philadelphia rendition also dropped its lineup on Tuesday (September 13). Kodak, Moneybagg and Tems will all hit Philly’s Wells Fargo Center as well, with new additions including Nicki Minaj and Armani White.

“PHILLY WTF IS GOOD???!!?!??!!” Nicki wrote in a tweet alongside a poster for the Philly event.

New Jersey’s Powerhouse 2022, which will be hosted by Power 105.1’s Angie Martinez, will take place on October 29 at 6:30 p.m. EST at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The Philly edition will take place on October 28.

Powerhouse is far from the only Hip-Hop oriented festival taking place this fall, as Rolling Loud is set to make its Big Apple return from September 23 – 25 at Citi Field in Queens, which Nicki is set to headline as well.

Nicki Minaj, A$AP Rocky and Future will serve as the headliners for this year’s three-day music fest, with additional performers including Playboi Carti, Lil Baby, Pusha T, DaBaby, 21 Savage, Big Sean, Erica Banks, Lil Uzi Vert, Moneybagg Yo, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Soulja Boy, Chief Keef, Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, Benny the Butcher, Boldy James and the Alchemist and many others.

The Barbz got particularly excited when they heard about Nicki headlining, as she will also be the first solo female rapper to ever headline the festival.

The New Jersey Powerhouse show could be an especially celebratory moment for Moneybagg Yo, as rumors have begun to swirl that his alleged ex-girlfriend Ari Fletcher is expecting a baby after she shared a photo of a pregnant belly on Twitter.

The since-deleted photo shows a close-up of a woman holding her visible baby bump, and eagle-eyed fans noticed the ring on her hand looked similar to the 22-carat diamond ring Moneybagg gifted her earlier this year.

The Memphis rapper, who is already a father to eight children — four sons and four daughters – has yet to confirm the identity of the pregnant woman. He has since deleted the photo.
