A tantalising bill of Hip Hop Royalty.

Rising from the thinking artist¹s anti-violence brand of Œconscious rap with
a soulful vibe¹, the bill for this once-in-a-lifetime show is a roll call of
hip hop¹s finest ever and most thoughtful talent. These universally
respected artists share the stage to take us on a journey through hits that
are lyrically and musically still streets ahead of anything out there. The
songs are as relevant now as they were back in the day, and this show
promises to deliver a timely reminder of Hip Hop¹s ability to show the
possibility of a better world.

Black Star¹s Mos Def and Talib Kweli reunite for the first time since 1999
(in the UK?) for one night only. De La Soul brings its snappy brand of old
skool cool to the fore and Rakim  widely respected as one of the best
rappers of all time - completes the line-up for this exclusive show.
Under 15s must be accompanied by an adult

Black Star
Black Star is a collaboration of emcees Talib Kweli and Mos Def. The title
is a reference to the Black Star Line, the shipping line founded by
Pan-Africanist, Marcus Garvey. The name Black Star brings to mind notions of
Afrocentric pride. These notions are brought to fruition by messengers Mos
Def & Talib Kweli. Mos Def was introduced on tracks by De La Soul and Da
Bush Babees which placed him in line to carry on as part of the next
generation in the Native Tongues movement. Together they came to form Black
Star bringing intelligent rhymes, classic battle rap dexterity and uplifting

De La Soul
In 1987, a trio known as De La Soul formed from Long Island, NY roots and
changed the landscape of hip hop as we knew it. Now, for over 20 years they
have rocked us with their De La songs full of inscrutable samplings,
whimsically irreverent lyrics, social commentary, light rhythm and laid back
rhymes. They have gained respect within and outside the hip hop community
with their contributions to rap, as well as jazz, funk, soul and alternative
genres. Not only are their musical innovations acclaimed and respected
worldwide, but they paved a path for many alternative rap groups who come
after them.

Their ¹89 album Œ3 Feet High and Rising¹ is an unquestionable Hip Hop
masterpiece going beyond the standard sampling of James Brown¹s ³Funky
Drummer² to include snippets from Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Sly and the
Family Stone and Liberace(!) and contained massive international hits with
the likes of ŒMe Myself and I¹, ŒSay No Go¹ and ŒThe Magic Number¹.

Universally referenced as one of the Masters of the Microphone and an
influence and inspiration to his peers and followers alike, Rakim first
exploded onto the scene with the release of iconic Eric B. is President in
1986 with long time collaborator Eric B. The single marked a turning point
in the Rap world - raising the bar for future emcees and revolutionizing the
way rhymes are delivered to this day. No serious discussion of the music's
greatest performers is held without a deferential accounting of his
achievements, and no serious rap artist grips a microphone without
channelling some of his legend.

With recent tributes such as NAS's U.B.R., collaborations including Alicia
Keys's New York State of Mind, a Platinum Edition of Paid In Full and his
newest LIVE album
"The aRchives: Live Lost and Found" keeping the world's eye on the one many
call GOD, Rakim Allah prepares to reset the standard again.
