Dwele at the Soul Food Festival tonight (7/7/2012)

Posted By on Sat, Jul 7, 2012 at 8:30 AM

DWELE How this Detroit native manages to fly under the radar is baffling. After catching the ear of the legendary (and legendarily creative) hip-hop producer J Dilla and collaborating with Dilla's group Slum Village on 2002's Tainted, Dwele went on to solidify himself in the neo-soul pantheon, releasing four solo albums since 2003. In recent years, the singer/producer has made appearances on high-profile projects like Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" and "Power," but it hasn't necessarily garnered Dwele the recognition you'd expect from features that big. Which may be good news for his longtime fans, who won't have to battle the masses to catch Dwele perform his hip-hop-tinged vintage soul. With WAR, The Whispers, Zapp, Chrisette Michelle, Angela Winbush and Ginuwine at the 3rd Annual Soul Food Festival. $25-$60. 5 p.m. Uptown Charlotte, corner of 9th Street and Brevard Street.
