If you haven’t seen Supernaturl spit a freestyle, you’re missing out. He’s definitely one of the dopest and most entertaining people on stage. Here’s a clip I found on youtube, courtesy of iomosmarad of Supernat at Rock the Bells in NYC. Follow me after the jump for another RTB video from Common’s set doing Black Star’s “Respiration” with Talib Kweli.

Wu-Tang beef with Joe Budden escalates at Rock the Bells 2009

After Joe Budden dissed Method Man’s lyrical abilities, Inspectah Deck released a song in retaliation and here at Rock the Bells ’09 in DC, Deck and Raekwon talk about their beef with Joe Budden. Personally, I don’t think this is the way to handle the problem, complaining about him on stage after quesitoning Budden’s “manliness” for not confronting them in person. After the stage performance, Raekwon sits down with to discuss the beef.

Ummm wow. That was my initial reaction when I saw this post at Hip Hop DX. With the initial artist lineup, this looks like (to me) that this is going to be the concert of the year. I know for sure that I am going to be trying like hell to make the Chicago show, because this is something I definitely don’t want to miss. This looks like the most studded Hip-Hop lineup I’ve seen for a show this year, and there are still more to be announced. If you get a chance to get tickets, please do not pass up your chance. Rock The Bells (Guerilla Union) has been putting together some of the finest Hip-Hop shows for the last 5 years and apparently they are looking to follow suit very strongly. To be honest I would probably pay one hundred dollars to see The Roots or Reflection Eternal. That means that even if tickets are one hundred (we don’t know as of yet) that this concert is absolutely killer for price. If you are able to make it to one of these shows, you are going to be catching the best Hip-Hop shows of this year.

Make sure you stay tuned for dates and ticket prices, as well as any updates that have to pertain to this series because we will let you know right away.
