Rock the Bells All Day

August 25th, 2010

Get ready to Rock the Bells. If you like hip-hop, you’ll love this because it’s not just any old music festival. It’s a day filled with some pretty amazing stuff. Snoop Dogg will be performing Doggystyle, the album that put him on the map, in its entirety. (See him, above, doing “Gin and Juice” from that album.) Plus A Tribe Called Quest will be playing their critically acclaimed third disc, Midnight Marauders. Pretty great, right? But there’s plenty more: Lauryn Hill, who’s been earning raves for her set, will be doing some of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill alongside Fugees hits. And then there’s Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr’s DJ Premier (honoring Guru), Rakim, KRS-One, Slick Rick and the list goes on. Find out how deep for yourself on Saturday at South Island Field at Governors Island.
