The traveling Art of Rap festival continued earlier this year, and it sadly ended up being the home of the last-ever Mobb Deep show (and after that, the Newark stop included a Mobb Deep tribute). There were two more Art of Rap stops added for November: Brooklyn and Boston.
The Brooklyn stop happens 11/4 at Kings Theatre with N.O.R.E., Rakim, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Mr. Cheeks, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, The Sugarhill Gang, Melle Mel, Scorpio and The Furious 5.
The Boston stop is 11/10 at Boch Center Wang Theatre with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, plus also Raekwon, Ghostface, EPMD, and Slick Rick. Tickets for both are on sale now.
Raekwon and Ghostface will both perform at Chicago's Riot Fest this weekend as members of Wu-Tang Clan, who are performing 36 Chambers in full. Ghostface also plays a solo set at NYC's The Meadows this weekend, and he plays a Meadows aftershow at Brooklyn Bowl on Friday (9/15) with Smoke DZA (tickets).
Earlier this year, Rakim reunited with Eric B for the first time in over two decades at The Apollo, and the show also included EPMD, Slick Rick, and many others.
N.O.R.E. recently hooked back up with old pal Pharrell Williams for the new song "Uno Mas," which you can hear below:
