Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Before Gucci Mane takes the stage at the Youngstown Foundation Amphitheater, three acts from right here in the Valley will entertain the crowd.

"It's amazing just to see the had work that has come behind the amphitheater and actually seeing it now and just being able to be on that stage is amazing," said Ace 500. "It's something good for Youngstown Ohio."

Ace 500 or Ace Brown, went to Chaney High School and now has his music available on most streaming platforms.

Over the years he's opened for some big names at the Covelli Centre including Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa.

"Growing up in Youngstown I always said I wanted to perform somewhere big in Youngstown. When we were younger, we didn't have something like this. So to be able to see this, it's just amazing and just to let you know your dreams will come true," said Ace 500.

Another opening act is rapper Dajia Doll.

She is also from right here in the Valley.

She said she's dedicating her performance to her father who was also a rapper and lost his life to gun violence.

"I know that he is going to be very proud. Like he is very proud," said Dajsha Doll. "I know that he would be like just do your thing. Kill it. This is big like especially only a year in and being where we come from I know he would be proud of me and my mom is too."

The East High School graduate now has her music on iTunes and Spotify. And said it's opportunities like opening for Gucci Mane that can make all the difference.

"So it is definitely big for the city and the community."

The opening acts are expected to take the stage just after the gates open around 7 p.m. Saturday.
