South Beach is 'bout to be mobbed.

It's almost Memorial Day weekend in the 305 (otherwise known as Urban Beach Week), the annual four-day span during which the beach (as well as mainland Miami) gets swarmed by famous rappers, celebrity strippers, and 250,000 party people from all over the Dirty South.

Now, some Dade County residents choose to flee for the holiday. And this year, certain SoBe clubs are even choosing to close till the Urban throng leaves town.

Time to grind in the 305.

It's Memorial Day weekend, AKA Urban Beach Week. As usual, South Beach and the mainland will be offering a great variety of new and old, ratchet and refined, as well as some straight gangsta lineups.

So start practicing your twerk, get your 26-inch chrome rims installed, and stack that paper high. Things are about to get ever so slightly turnt up.

Here are the ten best parties during Memorial Day weekend 2014 in Miami.

Cool those hot Memorial Day weekend vibes with Beres Hammond at Best of the Best.

Memorial Day weekend is among us ...

For us 305 peeps, that means we're either gonna run for our lives and avoid SoBe at all costs, or start our summer vacay early with Kid Ink, Sunghosts, Beenie Man, and the rest of the artists putting on kick ass shows for us. And judging from our relentless party rep, we'd bet on the latter.

Here are the five best concerts going down in Miami this week.

Bunji Garlin on Soca, "Differentology," and Not "Selling Out"

"Are you ready" for Trinidad's Bunji Garlin at Best of the Best 2014?

One hit is all it takes for an established musician to become an international star. For Bob Marley, it was "Judge Not." For Shaggy, it was "Oh, Carolina." For Trinidadian ragga soca artist Bunji "The Fireman" Garlin, that song is "Differentology."

"The purpose was to transcend beyond the season of the carnival [in Trinidad and Tobago] so that it can relate to anyone from anywhere," the singer explains. "It was made to stand out among everything else."

And Garlin's hit single does just that. Even those not familiar with the Trini, if they've tuned in to any local pop radio station, watched the tenth episode of season ten of Grey's Anatomy, or even jammed to Major Lazer, they've heard Bunji's big song.

Vibe out with Beres Hammond at Best of the Best.

"Don't leave your flags at home!"

That's an important tip from the Best of the Best folks.

'Cause this year's Memorial Day Weekend concert in Miami is a "100% Caribbean show," just like the last few editions, swapping the Ricky Rozays and DJ Khaleds for steady shots of straight reggae, dancehall, soca, and other island sounds.

So all our Jamaicans, Trinidadians, Haitians ... Break out the banners, the patriotic bikinis, the national-pride tees. And check the cut for the Best of the Best 2014 lineup.

Oh, Urban Beach Week. You came and left so quickly. We're still coughing up your kush clouds, and they still taste like purple.

We can't get the image of your bubble-butt constricted by ill-fitting neon fishnets and your glorious bikini gut out of our minds. We only want to smoke our Swishers from your gold-ringed, yellow-nailed fingers. But alas, you have left us wanting.

Actually, we still have these great photos. Check the cut for Crossfade's top ten Fashion Freakouts at Memorial Day weekend 2013 in Miami.

Lil Wayne and Birdman's Memorial Day 2013 Party at Mansion Miami

Party time, excellent.

Lil Wayne talked shit on The Heat? (payback's a bitch) Otherwise, fuck it, they're still #winning. (Well, except for last night.) But this is America, land of free speech, and he' s still one of the most popular rappers in the world, even if he fell asleep at the club and didn't rock the mic. That's why thousands of tourists from New York, Toronto, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, and everywhere else packed Mansion on Memorial Day for his party with Birdman celebrating GTV Vodka.

Meek Mill's "Levels To This Shit" rang out all night, and Scott Storch, Busta Rhymes, and the best showgirls in nightlife partied hard as a champagne pop while clear liquor flooded Washington Avenue. Here's what it looked like.

Lil Wayne's Memorial Day 2013 in Miami:
17 Reasons Weezy Couldn't Perform

Holy shit, this is gonna suck isn't it

Sorry to the thousands of tourists who paid around $80 each for the Lil Wayne & Birdman party at Mansion last night. We know you thought he would at least get on the mic for a minute and say wasup, rap a little, talk some shit, something. But he was extremely busy in the VIP. Plus, he was like 15 feet behind the DJ, so that would've been like a really far walk and all. But don't worry, we got some pictures of what he was up to. Very rare grown man shit. Here are the reasons Lil Wayne couldn't perform.
