The “Art Of Rap” Festival will supply the fix OG hip-hop heads have been missing for years.
Tired of the Soundcloud generation? Then get ready for the hip-hop festival you’ve been dreaming of since cassettes became obsolete. Sirius XM & Back Spin plan to bring legendary artists Public Enemy, Naughty By Nature, Mobb Deep, Ice-T, EPMD, the Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Melle Mel & Scorpio, and MC Lyte together to hit the road in order to bring back the classic vibes that has been missing from hip-hop since “Rock The Bells” abruptly ended its course.
Since the festival began last year, the tour, which got its name from Ice-T’s 2012 documentary Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, picked up heavy momentum after its inaugural run.
