Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, More to Perform Full Albums at Rock the Bells 2010
Rock the Bells is back for a seventh summer courtesy of production company Guerilla Union. Its heavy-hitting lineup has arrived as well via the freestyle wizardry of Supernatural.
Have a listen:
In case you didn’t catch all of that, RTB 2010 will feature a collection of legendary emcees and hip-hop architects, each of them performing one of their respective classic albums in its entirety. Check out this list of headliners and the works they’ll be tackling live.
Wu-Tang Clan – Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers (1993)
Rakim – Paid in Full (1987)
KRS-One – Criminal Minded (1987)
Slick Rick – The Great Adventures of Slick Rick (1988)
Other artists/groups set to perform include The Street Sweeper Social Club (Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello and The Coup’s Boots Riley), Murs & 9th Wonder, Wiz Khalifa, Clipse, Immortal Technique and more. Meanwhile, don’t forget RTB’s history of surprise performers, which includes the likes of Jay-Z, Slick Rick, and BEP. Suffice to say, you might could expect something like that again this year.
By the by, if you were as stoked as us about reports via the good people at URB.com that Lauryn Hill would be joining Wu-Tang and friends in the rocking of bells this summer, you should know that the rumors are, sadly, false. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger!
