Rock the Bells 2011 Tour About to Kickoff

The biggest hip-hop tour of the year is about to kickoff!

No, we’re not talking about Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. This is for the old school lovers – the Golden Era “real hip-hop, yo” folks – Rock the Bells 2011 with a bill boasting such names as Nas, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Cypress Hill, Black Star, Mobb Deep, and more.

The tour kicks off on August 20, but if you don’t live in or are willing to make the trip to L.A., San Francisco, New York City or Boston, you won’t get to see the full bill. Fortunately if you do live somewhere in-between those cities, chances are you’ll be able to catch a one-off show in your hometown.

Lots of Rock the Bells performers will be doing individual shows for the duration of the tour from August 20 – October 1.
