    Def Jam is turning 30, yo! And it's time to celebrate with Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, DMX, Fabolous, Foxy Brown, Jhené Aiko, Onyx, Method Man, Redman, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Warren G, EPMD, and Jeremih, as they've all been confirmed to perform during the historic, one-night-only Def Jam Recordings 30th Anniversary Concert.

    The all-star event will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday, October 16.

    Tickets will go on sale beginning Friday, August 22, at 10AM and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster by visiting barclayscenter.com or ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center beginning Saturday, August 23 at noon, if tickets are still available.

    The event, which will encompass all 30 years of Def Jam's influence on hip-hop music and culture, will take audiences through the label's history, from humble beginnings to what is to come in the future.

    The show will feature artists who are true masters of ceremony; those who evolved from crowd movers to wordsmith lyricists, and helped transform the face of a culture and give birth to hip-hop's golden age. It will be the only night audiences can see a rare breed of pioneers across generations who have influenced millions, and continue to change the dynamics of hip-hop to this day. The event is promoted and presented by Masters of Ceremony.

    Anyone in NYC or anywhere in the world plan to celebrate Def Jam's birfday?
