The Cold Crush Brothers, DAS EFX, Brand Nubian, and Black Sheep are just a few of the performers slated to perform at the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum All Star Benefit Concert on July 30. Proceeds from the concert will support the construction of the Hip Hall of Fame Museum.
“The concert will celebrate hip hop music and culture from the 70s, 80s, 90, 2000s, to present day artists who will be featured in upcoming Hip Hop Hall documentary film,” J.T. Thompson, creator of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards show, said in a statement.
The concert will follow a VIP industry mixer which will include the unveiling of the 2012 Hall of Fame inductee class as well as preliminary plans and designs for the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum, to be constructed in New York City’s midtown Manhattan. X-Clan, Rob Base, and Crash Crew will also perform at the All Star Benefit Concert.
The 2012 inductee class will be the first since 1997, when the annual Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards television show was cancelled due to too much violence in the industry. The awards show will return this November.
“Hip Hop has come a long way and we are looking forward to seeing all the people at the benefit concert who love hip hop music and culture,” said Easy A.D. of the Cold Crush Brothers (pictured above).
Who do you think will earn a spot in the 2012 Hip Hop Hall of Fame inductee class?
