deltron and missy!?!? hell yeah.

this lineup is 50% shit, but i think that could be beneficial, since last year there were so many good acts, all the overlaps really fucked with the festival. I don't think people will have problems missing Mac Miller for Dipset or Wiz Khalifa for Nas.

but yeah, there's a lot of garbage on this lineup.

not the best lineup, but not awful. the real turnoff is PNC. no thanks...

Prodigy used to headline 75,000 person festivals on the UK just a few years ago. Wonder what motivates him to perform at this.

lol 12:39, u stupid

The top-listed headliners are AWFUL, but the 9th listing (DipSet) on down are all really tight. I love the idea of going there, being high the whole time, and getting the fuck out of there before having to over-engage with the kind of people that listen to fucking J. Cole.

12:39 has to be either a juggalo, or a white condo monkey. Are you truely that lost and stupid? for fucks sake

Amazing!
Multiple comments here actually thinking that "Prodigy" means "THE Prodigy"!!

And not, y'know, the very well-known rapper Prodigy of Mobb Deep....

You guys deserve a RTB headlined by Wiz.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 10:38 AM

VERY good pick up on Prodigy vs. The Prodigy and you're right...I gotta take a Wiz now.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 10:48 AM

I agree with the guy that said the lineup is 50% garbage, but it's better so that RTB's intended audience can see all the great acts. Throw in J Cole, Wiz, 2 Chainz and whatever radio rap, sell more tickets, and maybe turn on some people that have never heard Dipset.

Rock the Bells is being headlined by Missy and Bone thugs. Not Cudi and Wiz. They are just on the bottom of the poster instead of the top.

I wonder if D ever attends the new hardcore, gangsta jams?

hell is a big rap festival.

Even though EE passed from AIDS and had 30 children from 20 women (or something like that) - it's still amazing that no one talks about him being a closeted bisexual and the likely REASON he contracted the horrible disease - man on man sex.

The entire world of rap is full of guys in the bi closet. Suge spilled the details and everyone was like, uh, uh, not the guys I listen to. Bullshit. If you were into rap in the early '90's, you were probably listening to a bisexual rapper. If you're into rap today (hellllooo Odd Future), you're likely doing the same thing.

well kanye's def a homo, we can get that out of the way for starters

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 1:50 PM

Mac Miller? When will you assholes understand he is just an Asher Roth rip off? And Asher Roth sucks more than anyone else on that lineup.

Posted by AROX | May 16, 2012 2:43 PM

Kid Cudi is headlining over NAS???? ARE YOU FUCKING JOKING??
