Music Festivals are the new snapbacks, they’re cool until you can’t turn a corner without seeing one of them pop up. This years Rock The Bells will feature a who’s who of today’s headlines and rising stars such as Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz and rounded out with dependable reoccurring sets like Nas, Dipset, Slick Rick, Too $hort, and Methon Man & Redman. There are a lot of question marks surrounding this years lineup; What will Cam’Ron and Nas do when they see each other?, Kendrick Lamar + Schoolboy Q + Ab-Soul + Jay Rock finally make a mark with Black Hippie?, will KiD CuDi reprise his WZRD act?, Wiz Khalifa bring out Amber Rose?, Mac Miller outshine everyone? (Crowds respond to him, don’t hate), but what is sure to steal the show is the return of Missy Elliot, accompanied by partner in crime producer Timbaland.
Bone Thugs n Harmony, who seem to be re-energized with the return of all 5 original members and a new album on the way. The group will be performing their ‘E 1999 Eternal’ album, in its entirety.
