Last year’s Homecoming is pretty notorious for its Warchant disappointment. After plans for Solange Knowles performing fell through, everyone was pretty bummed. But this year, we’re more than ready for an awesome performance by Rae Sremmurd! With hits like No Type, Black Beatles and Guatemala, there’s no doubt this will be the show of a lifetime. Ticket sales have already begun online, so act fast … and be sure to bring your FSU ID for a discounted ticket of only $22 after fees!
