Tonight's show is scheduled to run from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Purple Moon Nightclub in Flint.
As previously reported by SOHH, Breed passed away late last month after suffering kidney failure.
The rapper's manager Darryl Morris confirmed his body was discovered lifeless at a friend's residence in Ypsilanti, Michigan on November 22 according to Detroit News,.
In September, Breed collapsed on a basketball court. He was taken to the hospital and put on life support due to kidney problems and was taken off life support days later.
