Hip Hop 50 Live: Everything You Need to Know About the Celebration of the Genre

On Hip Hop’s 50th birthday, Hip Hop 50 Live will celebrate where the genre originated from in the Bronx, NY on August 11. The one-of-a-kind event will showcase Run DMC’s “Bottom of the Ninth…The Walk-Off” performance. It will feature appearances from all the hip hop legends you can imagine – from Ice Cube to Lil Wayne to Snoop Dogg and more.
