Rock the bells Tour

Nas, Raekwon, Common, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def & More Kick Off Rock The Bells Tour in the IE [Videos]



Some of hip hop’s finest acts kicked off the 2011 Rock The Bells Tour at San Bernardino’s San Manuel Amphitheater yesterday

According to the Los Angeles Times, two of the sets that stood out were Nas and Lauryn Hill. Both of whom performed their classic albums ‘Illmatic,’ and ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill‘ in their entirety.


No album better captured that dichotomy than the evening’s emotional core, “Illmatic,” with Nas aided by the album’s lone guest star, AZ, and its legendary producers, Pete Rock and DJ Premier. Backed by a set piece of the Queensbridge Houses projects and clips from four elements of the hip-hop bible, “Wild Style,” the all-black clad Nas brought the “dungeons of rap” to the Inland Empire.

Other acts on the bill included Erykah Badu, Mobb Deep, Cypress Hill, Ghostface Killah, Mos Def and Common.

Next stop for the tour is August 27 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in San Francisco.
