Dipset, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Quick Added To Paid Dues Line-Up
The line-up of this year's Paid Dues Festival is shaping up to be a roll call of Hip-Hop super groups sprinkled with a few West Coast game changers. Cali rapper Murs and Guerilla Union announced that Dipset, Living Legends, DJ Quick and
Top 10 New School MC Kendrick Lamar, will join headliners Wu-Tang Clan and Odd Future for the seventh installment of the Hip-Hop festival. Leading up to the April show, Paid Dues is expected to announce more performers added to the list.
Over the past few weeks, the once dismantled Dipset crew have been sharing face time on VH1's Love & Hip Hop, but their addition to the Paid Dues lineup will mark the first time that they have performed on the West Coast. Last month Dipset came together for a tribute concert for Harlem rapper Huddy "6" Combs, who died in a car accident two years ago. In light of signing on for Paid Dues, Juelz Santana revealed that he, Jim Jones, Cam'ron and Freekey Zekey, are moving much slower when it comes to dropping a Diplomats album. “We didn't want to get back together and rush out an album,” he told Vibe.com last fall.
So while the release of the Dipset album hangs in the balance, for now, fans can catch them at Paid Dues on Saturday, April 7 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, Calif.
