From the desk of Ru Johnson:
The hip-hop Gods are with us, as always and if you know like we know, this is a mega huge announcement. Nas, Black Star (Talib Kweli & Yasiin Bey), Pusha-T, Brother Ali and The ReMINDers will rock the bells off Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 31st. More information below.
Rap fans all over the city were applauding and cheering on Black Star at The Ogden back in February and the duo even joined Madlib at Cervantes for an encore performance. Proving again that Talib and Yasiin (formerly Mos Def) were born with legendary rap blood running through their veins. Now they’ll join the absolutely incredible Nas and Pusha-T at one of the most beautiful concert venues in the world. Every time Nas comes to the city, adoring rap fans from all over the state flock to his calling.
We can’t say enough about how amazing this lineup is and how important it is to bring this kind of show to Red Rocks in Colorado. So basically let’s do this. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. via axs.com. Holler at us if you want the pre-sale password that comes out the day before tickets go on sale.
