More than a concert. More than a festival. The Art of Rap celebrates an art form with iconic rappers from yesterday and today. Featuring Ice-T, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Slick Rick, Raekwon, Kurtis Blow, Kxng Crooked I, X-Ecutioners: Rob Swift and Mista Sinista, B-Boy Tata and hosted by Chief Rocker Busy Bee, The Art of Rap honors the power of hip-hop culture and its ability to unify everyone through art and music. In the words of Ice-T, it’s the most powerful and influential cultural movement since rock and roll and a true art form that deserves respect. Show it this summer at RiverEdge Park.
