Scarface, MC Lyte, DJ Quik and More Headlining Chicago’s Legends Fest
For those of you complaining that there aren’t any more real hip-hop concerts, look no further than this star-studded concert. The city of Chicago is about to go down memory rap lane with the Legends Fest Hip-Hop Edition show.
Veteran rappers Scarface, MC Lyte, DJ Quik, KRS-One, and Chicago's own Twista and Shawnna are headlining the Chi-City event, which takes place on May 25 at the Arie Crown Theater.
This is undoubtedly one of the more musically diverse old-school rap concerts we have seen -- you have east, west, midwest, and south representing on the show. Tickets are available now at ariecrown.com.
Legends Fest isn't the only old-school rap show happening this summer. Rap legends Ice-T and fellow Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah will headline the Art of Rap Festival. Legendary groups EPMD, Bone, Thugs-N-Harmony, Naughty by Nature, Onyx and Eric B & Rakim are also on the bill.
