Rock the Bells Hip-Hop Tour Stopping in Columbia


Over the last few years, the Rock the Bells tour has grown from a series of one-off shows into a full-scale touring entity -- although its aim (to showcase the best, most innovative hip-hop artists) hasn't changed.

On Monday, August 24, the tour will stop at the Blue Note in Columbia. Performing will be Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek), Slaughterhouse (Joe Budden, Royce Da 5'9", Joell Ortiz, Crooked I) and Supernatural. (Slum Village was originally supposed to be on the bill, but original member Baatin passed away last weekend.) Pete Rock hosts. Tickets are available now.
