Yeah, like today's rappers are so much better. Lil Wayne couldn't hold Q-Tip or KRS-one's microphone, let alone create anything as timeless as what those guys did.

ha! you kids and your witty little comments. even if you weren't alive back when these albums came out (which no doubt is the case) you should be able to recognize the genius of this lineup. and the funny thing is, i bet half the artists you listen to love these artists on the RTB lineup as well. if they were to mention it, i'm sure you would change your minds.

Snoop, Tribe, Wu, Rakim, KRS and Slick Rick all performing CLASSIC albums - how can you complain about that?

Though a Wavves set featuring Asher Roth would be equally off the hook too...I hear ya.

Are people here retarded? who wouldn't want to see wu-tang and tribe perform their classics? that's not "white kid" crap! maybe it's just the fact that those albums have never been topped, especially not by the likes of wayne. i don't even get how this is a white thing or a hipster thing. rock the bells 2008 was the best.

Um...Who wouldn't want to see Ms. Lauryn Hill live? If you can't appreciate her talent you should just hang your headphones up and shoot yourself in the mouth...I'm just sayin'.
