The Pharcyde, A Tribe Called Quest, Nas Headline Annual Rock the Bells Festival

Rock the Bells is consistently the annual geek-out for hip-hop purists who can't let go of loving classic acts from the golden era of the early to mid 90s. The festival isn't letting up this year with the announcement of reuniting legendary L.A. group, The Pharcyde. The mere thought of hearing all four members rhyme their own verse to “Passin' Me By” gives me chills. The addition of headliners A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Nas, and Rakim make the trip back in time all the more worthwhile. It's not a total time warp, as Spank Rock, Kid Sister, Amanda Blank, and Flosstradamus represent today's progressive wave of hip-hop. The Rock the Bells festival travels to San Francisco this summer, August 16. Click 'More' for more info. —Oscar Pascual
