ROCK THE BELLS
August 20th-September 10th
Hip-hop titans including Lauryn Hill, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, and Cypress Hill will play full-album sets at this year's Rock the Bells fest. Best of all: Nas is dusting off his classic 1994 debut, Illmatic, for the first time ever. Says the MC, "Performing it live will be euphoria."
