This past weekend marked the Bay Area return of Rock the Bells, the annual festival that brings the latest and greatest names in hip hop together for a day filled with amazing music. With a line-up that boasted names that included Common, Blackstar, Nas, GZA, Lauryn Hill and more, it was a must see event for any hip hop fan.
Bay Area natives were in for a treat at the start of the festival as Oakland natives Souls of Mischief came out to perform their break through record, ’93 Till Infinity. The performance was filled with contagious energy as members Tajai, Opio, A-Plus, and Phesto performed across the main stage, reciting the album’s lyrics to the beat emanating from the speakers. Audience members were quickly engulfed in the sound of the group, nodding their heads back and forth and shouting along lyrics to a classic album over a decade old.
Sets by Common, Nas, and other performers on the main stage garnered the same kind of excitement that Souls of Mischief commanded, if not more. Performing classic records that included Be, Illmatic, and Blackstar, fans were given unforgettable performances of some of the most highly-regarded hip hop albums that have been released since the early 90s.
The day moved along between the main stage and three smaller stages, two of which were set up in the venue parking lot. Fans had the choice to watch members and associates of the legendary hip hop group, Wu Tang Clan, on the 36 Chambers stage, or check out rising stars including Blu, Fashawn, and Big K.R.I.T. on the Paid Dues stage.
As night fell, sun-soaked fans gathered together to watch the headliner, Lauryn Hill, perform her blockbuster album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The songstress took the stage and played well known singles with such energy and vigor with the help of an incredible band and talented backup singers. Although she didn’t quite have the same precision in her voice compared to her early years, the wave of nostalgia that swept over the audience as she played her songs was enough to hold the crowd.
Overall, the day was an impressive addition to an already stellar history of Rock the Bells performances leaving me looking forward to next year’s offering.
Listen to artists featured in this year’s lineup (Nas, Mobb Deep, Fashawn, Lauryn Hill, and more) on Live365.
Rock the Bells is rounding out its tour with trips to New York and Boston. Visit their website to learn about tickets, venues, set times, and more.
