Up-and-coming hip-hop and pop duo will perform a free concert on campus Oct. 2.

Chicago-based duo Zaena x Jason Maek will make a pop-up shop and tour stop in Norman as part of the Freshman Tour, a national tour on college campuses from DoorDash, Visible and Fuse TV.

The event begins at 2 p.m. Oct. 2 in the Oklahoma Memorial Union with a pop-up shop with free bags, food, contests and live music. 

The concert begins at 7 p.m. with performances by local musicians, which are to be announced, followed by the duo performing current hits and unreleased music, according to a press release. 

The tour spans across universities from Pennsylvania to California. 

Zaena x Jason Maek have been featured on TV shows such as “Queen Sugar” and “Game of Thrones,” and they are best known for hits such as “Get to Work” and “Get You Right.

The duo released a visual album in 2014 and have since received attention from Rolling Stone magazine, opened for hit artist Kesha and performed at music festivals and fashion week in New York and Paris. 

The music groups’ sound is described as a blend of “harmonic vocals and hard-hitting rap lyrics.”
