New York rapper and former Roots member Rahzel has announced a hometown show happening July 28 at Brooklyn Bowl. He'll be joined by a pretty impressive list of guests, including Pete Rock, Large Professor (who both did beats for Illmatic, among many other things of course), and the Rock Steady Crew's DJ JS1. Tickets go on sale today (5/13) at 10 AM. It's Rahzel's only upcoming show at the moment.

Speaking of The Roots, Black Thought plays "I Got Life, in residence celebrating Black Music Month" at Le Poisson Rouge on June 16 with Gina Castanzo, Deva Mahal, Range Da Messenga, Denitia Odigie, Donn T, Tiani Victoria and host Dice Raw. Tickets are on sale.

Also, don't forget about Philly's Roots Picnic in June.
