This year's hip hop music festival Rock the Bells features 40 acts in 4 cities. It will cover coast to coast: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and New York. For the Bay Area's lineup in San Francisco, there are some new and old hip hop favorites. The 3 headliners on the flyer are Kid Cudi, Wu-Tang Clan, and members of Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock).
There will also be special virtual performances by Ol' Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E, which I personally think is weird and overhyped. So if you couldn't fish out the hundreds of dollars to see these artists live, then you can still listen to these albums from the library. Did you know that our library has these artists' albums to checkout? You didn't?? Well, I already listed the latest albums from artists that we carry in our collection, so you just click on the link! Don't forget to use Freegal to download tunes for free. Some artists only have digital copies made available. I also included DVDs and books that might be of interest for hip hop heads.
