The amazing lineup for this year’s Rock The Bells was enough to drive hip-hop fans crazy as it was. I mean, Nas is performing all of Illmatic for fuck’s sake. Not to mention the fact Lauryn Hill is doing all of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill while Mos Def and Talib Kweli will tackle the entirety of their Black Star record.
I could get into how ridiculous the rest of the performers are, but we already did that. You’re here to learn that Common, DOOM, and Killah Priest have been added to the lineup. Com won’t be playing all four shows, though, but when he does perform, he will do his fantastic 2005 album, Be, in its entirety. Oh, and the already-announced Erykah Badu has been confirmed to tackle all of Baduizm. Sheesh.
Tickets are on sale now. Head to the Rock The Bells site for more information. Watch the video for Common’s “The Corner,” off Be, below.
