Are You Ready for Rock The Bells 2012?


And it’s back! The lineup for Rock The Bells 2012—arguably the realest hip-hop concert of the year—has officially been announced.

Hosted by Wu-Tang abbot RZA, the show’s scheduled performers include Nas, Method Man, Redman, Ice Cube, Dipset (!!!), Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole Kid Cudi, Slick Rick, Salt-N-Pepa, and a special appearance by the king and queen of 90s hip-hop & R&B production Timbaland and Missy Elliott—and that’s not even half of the lineup!

If you were in attendance last year, then you already know that it’s the official spot for 90s hip-hop heads and music lovers of all ages. This year’s festival will hit up the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on August 18 & 19, Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA August 25 & 26 and end things at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ on September 1 & 2.

Hmm…the NJ show is the same two days as Jay-Z’s highly publicized “Made In America” music festival. Which one will you be attending?
