The LOX at Best Buy Theater in 2011 (more by Brook Bobbins)
Brook Bobbins

Cypress Hill are playing their mostly annual NYC Halloween show this year on October 30 at Best Buy Theater, and they've got La Coka Nostra, Immortal Technique and Vinnie Paz joining them for the occasion. Tickets for that show go on sale today (8/8) at noon. Their only other date that we're currently aware of is Made In America LA.

Other NYC hip hop shows were recently announced too, like the previously discussed ones from Black Milk, Wu-Tang w/ Bone Thugs, Diplomats, Lil Kim & more and the recently-expanded AfroPunk Festival. Here's more...

Two days after the legendary Rakim plays Studio 48 (10/2) with Slick Rick, he plays 'The Bbg Presents The Noge 50th Year Benefit Concert' at NYC's Apollo Theater (10/4) with Big Daddy Kane (tickets). Both Rakim and Big Daddy Kane are also billed for the 'Hip Hop Hall Of Fame Jam: Legends of The Fall' happening at Long Island's NYCB Theatre at Westbury (10/4) the same day as the Apollo show, so it's not entirely clear how (or if) that will work out. Also on the Westbury show is Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, Biz Markie and Pep & the Soul Explosion Band (tickets).

Veteran New York trio The LOX (Styles P, Sheek Louch, Jadakiss) are on board for this year's Fool's Gold Day Off on Labor Day, and exactly a month later they'll play NYC again at BB King's on October 1. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Sooner at BB King's another NYC rapper, Fabolous, takes over the venue on August 23. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Tickets are on sale now and you can also RSVP for VIP. Flyer with more info, below.

The single can be downloaded for $5 or more and all proceeds over the next week will benefit the recovery of Red Hook. You can stream those two tracks below.
