Mass Appeal, in collaboration with Live Nation and Yankee Stadium, is joining forces to commemorate the birthday of Hip-Hop. Aptly named "Hip-Hop 50 Live," the event will take place on August 11, paying homage to the Bronx, where it all began. This triumvirate of organizers has curated a star-studded lineup for the occasion. The legendary Run-D.M.C. will deliver a headlining performance, featuring an array of special guests, under the captivating title "Bottom Of The 9th, The Walk-Off."

Expressing his gratitude, Run shares with Rolling Stone, "I am honored to grace the stage in the Bronx, the birthplace of Hip-Hop, and celebrate all the pioneers who inspired me." D.M.C. enthusiastically adds, "August marks the 50th birthday of Hip-Hop! So, we will gather 'Up in the Bronx,' where it all originated, to commemorate this monumental milestone in history! It is a privilege for me to pay tribute to the culture that allowed a shy kid from Queens to grow into The Mighty King of Rock! Thank you, Hip-Hop!"

Joining forces with Run-D.M.C., the event will feature captivating performances by Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, and a host of surprise guests. Mass Appeal has also confirmed the participation of T.I., Ghostface Killah, Common, Fat Joe, Lupe Fiasco, and Slick Rick, with more artists expected to be announced in the coming days.

In addition to these phenomenal acts, the event will showcase specialty sets dedicated to specific facets of Hip-Hop. The "Queens Of Hip-Hop" set will feature electrifying performances by Lil Kim, Eve, Trina, and Remy Ma. The "Pillars of Hip-Hop" set will pay homage to the influential figures Kool Herc, Grandmaster Caz, Melle Mel, and Roxanne Shante. Attendees will also be treated to era-spanning DJ sets by Battlecat, Mannie Fresh, Clark Kent, and Marley Marl.

Tickets for this unforgettable concert will be available for purchase starting this Thursday, June 8.
