The 10 Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: H-Town Beat Down, Derailers, Morris Day, etc.

H-Town Beat Down BBVA Compass Stadium, June 20

What better way to christen concerts at BBVA Compass Stadium than an insane hop-hop/R&B show with four top stars? BBVA may want to take out some extra coverage on natural disasters, because Kendrick Lamar, Trey Songz, J. Cole and Future performing together may in fact bring the walls down. Lamar has grown into one of the hip-hop's biggest names as the thinking man's rapper, whose mellow, insightful rhymes on songs like "Swimming Pools (Drank) delves deeper than the usual rap subject matter.

But don't worry: with Trey Songz and J Cole around, this 93.7 FM-sponsored concert will still be plenty dirty. Both men are known for their enthusiastic love of women -- Songz on songs like "I Invented Sex" and Cole on just about everything -- and Future, thanks to hits like "Honest" and "Magic," can certainly carry his share of the weight as well.
