This weekend R. Kelly heads into his hometown in what should be the weekend’s most soulful show. But just about everyone else in contemporary hip-hop and R&B is headed to Philadelphia for the Powerhouse 30 concert starring Maybach Music Group, Usher and Keyshia Cole, as well as an old-school show in a separate location with SWV, Jagged Edge and 112. BET covers the election in the second part of their BET new election documentary and Halle Berry and Tom Hanks cover thousands of years of history in “Cloud Atlas” opening this weekend. For more of what’s happening around your way this weekend, read on.
