KINGSTON, R.I. - URI Athletics along with URI Student Entertainment Committee (SEC) and Spectra Venue Management are pleased to announce that Lil Baby will be headlining Rhody Madness 2018 at the Ryan Center on the campus of The University of Rhode Island on Thursday, Oct. 18. Tickets are set to go on sale for the general public on Monday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m. 

Lil Baby is Atlanta's "rookie of the year" says The FADER. His career is taking off in ways unimaginable to many, but if you ask him, this is all God's plan. Harder Than Ever marks the 23-year-old's debut album on Quality Control Music, home to Migos and Lil Yachty. Only two years ago in 2016, Lil Baby started rapping under the nourishment of Coach K and Pierre "Pee" Thomas. In 2017 alone he released four mixtapes, had two smash records in "My Dawg" and "Freestyle" combining for over 300 million streams, and now he has raised the bar with Harder Than Ever; his musical tour de force boasting detailed story-telling, infectious melodies and exquisite production. Harder Than Ever debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and features his smash "Yes Indeed" feat. Drake which peaked at No. 6 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart.

Tickets to see Lil Baby at Rhody Madness at the Ryan Center are $10 for URI Students (limited quantity) and $15 for the general public. Tickets are available Monday, September 24 online at, charge by phone at 1.855.387.4849, or at the Ryan Center Box Office.
