Every summer, many a Philadelphia hip-hop fan is disappointed as they miss out on Rock The Bells in NYC, due to either distance or the $100+ ticket prices. Thankfully though, the organizers of the four-city festival took note this year, and partnered with promoters Guerrilla Union and House of Blues Entertainment to organize a very one of a kind tour featuring some of the iconic RTB artists. There will be two separate legs of the tour, the first of which stops in Philly tonight and will feature Raekwon and Ghostface Killah performing their 1995 hit album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, as well as duo Mobb Deep performing their breakout LP The Infamous from the same year. The second leg of the Rock The Bells tour will stop in Philly on September 11th at the TLA. That date will feature Black Star (aka Mos Def and Talib Kweli) performing their 1998 collaborative album Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star. Damn! Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Mobb Deep perform at the TLA at 7:00 p.m.; tickets to the all-ages show are $42.
