Rock the Bells
Whatever challenges may come, the bells will keep on rocking for Rock the Bells, the renowned hip-hop festival that was cancelled in September midway through its 10th anniversary dates.
Among the acts that were confirmed to perform over the two-day festival include Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Wu-Tang Clan and Tech N9ne.
“Family Reunion” appropriately samples the classic O’Jay’s soul tune of the same name, lending a retro soul feel to the rap featuring Ghostface Killa, Method Man and Masta Killa.
In this week’s REWIND, Kanye West opens new chapter for his new ‘Yeezus’ album; Holograms of Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy E are on deck; and Dr. Dre’s ‘Detox’ dreams return.
Just days after Rock The Bells announced this year’s show would feature virtual performances from ODB and Eazy-E, Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s widow demanded she be consulted before the project could continue.
We talked to Rock The Bells’ founder about what to expect from the OBD and Eazy-E holograms – ahem, “virtual performances” – that were just announced yesterday.
