TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida A&M University is lining up recording artists to perform at halftime during football games this fall to replace the school's suspended band.
The university on Monday announced the performer known as "Future" will be the star attraction when the Rattlers open their home schedule by hosting Hampton University on Sept. 15.
The Marching 100 was suspended following the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion last year during a band trip to Orlando.
Future, who was born Navyvadius Cash in Atlanta, also will meet and greet winners of a promotional contest.
The university, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary, has not yet announced other halftime headliners.
The first game also will feature an old school versus new school DJ battle that will include FAMU alum Will 'Power' Packer.
