Old school hip hop fans are probably fi'in to go nuts between all the great shows in the next couple months including a big one this weekend at BB King's....

Big Daddy Kane is celebrating "20 years in the game" with the Sound Providers and Connie Price & The Keystones along with special guest DJs Mister Cee (BDK's original DJ), fellow Juice Crew-er Biz Markie, Skaz Digga, and J. Period. Tickets are on sale.

Meanwhile, fellow Juice Crew affiliate Craig G will open for the underappreciated hip hop crew D.I.T.C. will (mostly) reunite on Dec 7th at The Knitting Factory. Look for Lord Finesse, Diamond D, A.G., O.C. + "special guests" to hit the main stage with The Legion. Pray that "special guests" does not mean Fat Joe. Tickets are on sale.
