​If there is one thing Memorial Day Weekend in Miami is known for is perhaps the sickest dancehall/hip-hop concert this side of Jamaica. Best of the Best's name might seem a bit boastful but it's hard to argue otherwise. Last year, the concert brought together Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, T-Pain, and more.

So if you are waiting in anticipation on who will be performing this year, here is the line-up so far: Shaggy, Gucci Mane, Mavado, Serani, Bounty Killer, Baby Cham, Mr. Vegas, Anthony B, Demarco, Gyptian, Tony Matterhorn and the New Kingston Band, Aidonia, Lady Saw, Baby Cham, Pinchers, Chino, Ding Dong, R.D.X., and G Whizz. And that's just part of it; more acts are still waiting to be announced.

All of this takes place once again at Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami. Tickets are already on sale for $34 general admission, $104 for VIP via or Ticketmaster.
