Two shows worthy of your attention, both featuring New Orleans hip-hop stars:

Curren$y headlines the #TURNUP Tour, which slides into the Palace Theatre on Dec. 1. Joining the detail-oriented marijuana enthusiast will be Houston sing-rapper Kirko Bangz and Georgia group Travis Porter (yeah, I thought Travis Porter was just one dude too). Also, and I promise I'm not making this up, somebody named Jump Jiggy is performing. Tickets are on sale now for $43 or $53.

Then, on Dec. 4, Cash Money icon Mannie Fresh will be involved in the Clash of the Titans Five producer battle at Skully's. After a contest featuring beats by 16 local producers, the former Hot Boy will take the stage. Searius Add hosts. $15 admission before 10 p.m.; presumably it goes up after that.
