A tantalising bill of Hip Hop Royality.
Rising from the thinking artist’s anti violence brand of ‘conscious rap with a soulful vibe’, the bill for this once-in-a-lifetime show is a roll call of hip hop’s finest ever and most intelligent talent. These universally respected artists share the stage to take us on a journey through hits that are lyrically and musically still streets ahead of anything out there today. The songs are as relevant now as ithey were back in the day, and this show promises to deliver a timely reminder of Hip Hop’s ability to show the possibility of a better world.
Black Star’s Mos Def and Talib Kweli reunite in the UK for the first time since 1999 for one night only. De La Soul brings its snappy brand of old skool cool to the fore and Rakim – widely respected as one of the best rappers of all time – completes the line-up for this exclusive show. Unmissable.
