HIP HOP LIVE is a annual Hip Hop tour (in it’s second year) that combines some dope MCs with live instruments. I have a huge amount of respect for the DJ, I mean without them we wouldn’t be here. But, there’s something really compelling about an MC spitting over a live band that makes for a nice change of pace. That’s if it’s done right. This year the tour will have Talib Kweli, David Banner, Little Brother and B.O.B. All the dates will have Kweli and Banner and the ones with Little Brother and B.O.B are indicated.
