Ok, I know, another hip hop post? Yeah, that's right another hip hop post and you had better get damn excited. The freedom of summer and cheap airline tickets from college towns should be enough to motivate you heads towards this year's ultimate summer music madness. Yup, Rock the Bells 2011 is in your face with a juggernaut lineup that will be worth every single penny. The headliners this year are playing full album sets all day and night to break you off like a kit kat in the following tempest of insanity. Ahem. Ms. Lauryn Hill, Nas (featuring Pete Rock and DJ Premier,) Cypress Hill, Blackstar, Erykah Badu, GZA, Murs, Immortal Technique, Fashawn, Evidence (of Dilated Peoples,) Mac Miller and so many more. Kicking off on august 20th in LA, then hopping to San Francisco, New York and Boston through September. You can check out the full lineup and ticket info here. If you have the chance and you love hip hop like I do, make the call and do what is right. Rock the Bells comes but once a year. Peace.
