Who can? Cuse Can!
On April 6th, University Union, The National Panhellenic Council, and the Student Association are proud to present Cuse Can!, a day to appreciate and acknowledge differences and make a change! Along with classroom discussion sessions, there will be a comedy set by Tiffany Haddish in the afternoon and a concert featuring Flipp Dinero and Pusha T at night. Student Association will be hosting two panels in Watson Theater in the afternoon: “What We Need To Be Talking About,” a discussion of on campus issues, at 4:15 PM and “Just Up The Block,” discussions of issues happening in our greater community, at 5:15 PM. Cuse Can performances will be held in Goldstein Auditorium, with Tiffany Haddish in the afternoon and Flipp Dinero and Pusha T at night!
It’s impossible to not love this triple threat (comedian, actress, and producer!). Most people know Tiffany Haddish from the smash hit “Girls Trip” or her role on “The Last O.G.”, but Haddish has a plethora of projects on her schedule that will keep us all laughing. She’s also a history maker: she was the first black female comedian to host “Saturday Night Live” in 2017, which earned her a 2018 Emmy for “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.” If that all wasn’t enough, she’s also a writer; her memoir “The Last Black Unicorn” made the New York Times bestseller list and earned her a 2019 Grammy nomination for “Spoken Word Album.” Her show is guaranteed to have you laughing all afternoon!
Come see the artist behind “Leave Me Alone,” the song that you always catch yourself humming because it’s that catchy. Flipp Dinero is more than his hit, though; with his bulletproof bars and a unique sound, he proves that he’s an artist that’s here to stay. I’m not the only one that thinks so; numerous stars have co-signed him, from Drake to Kim Kardashian, and DJ Khaled personally signed the Brooklyn artist to his label. Come dance the night away to Dinero’s infectious music and see what everyone is raving about!
One of hip hop’s icons is making his way north for Cuse Can! Meet Pusha-T: 4x nominated recording artist, President of G.O.O.D. music, sneaker designer, and activist. Besides creating Daytona, one of the most critically acclaimed albums of recent times, Pusha T has advocated strongly for criminal justice reform and campaigned for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential Election, making him one of the most politically involved rap stars of recent times. Pusha T is electric onstage, stunning sold out audiences night after night with his lyricism and talent. You don’t want to miss this!
Tickets are available at the Schine Box Office or online at boxoffice.syr.edu: $5 for Stand up, $5 for Concert or $8 for both (bundle option only available at Schine Box Office)! All proceeds will go to Hendricks Chapel Food Pantry and Hillside Children’s Center.
