Lauryn Hill, A Tribe Called Quest, DJ Premiere and Snoop Dogg are the latest acts to be added to this year's Rock the Bells festival. Holy shit, Batman! Lauryn Hill? The superstar and ex-Fugee is coming out of self-imposed seclusion and exile to perform? She hasn't been seen or heard from in years, dodging her fame and her talent like it was a bullet out to get her.
A Tribe Called Quest's set will be special, as the crew will perform its Midnight Marauders its entirety, while Snoop Dogg will do the same and perform Doggystyle, from front to back, while DJ Premier will appear as part of a special Tribute to Gang Starr, even though he fell out with his former bandmate Guru, who died in April.
Hill's set, according to Billboard, was prepared exclusively for Rock the Bells and spans her entire career, including songs from her smash 1998 hit, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, alongside Fugees material.
The four-date tour will play major markets Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, DC in late August.
