Rock The Bells has announced the full lineup for their forthcoming 10 year anniversy show, which kicks off this September. They have a hefty and diverse roster of acts as usual, but have also announced “virtual performances” from Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E.

Rock The Bells founder Chang Weisberg gave this statement:

It’s an original virtual performance, not a hologram. I never used the word hologram. There are a number of multimedia visual effects that will be applied that will definitely at the very least make the performances look like a hologram. People’s minds will be blown.

Episode 2 of their sit down with Scarface, the conversation picks up at Scarface talking about Tupac and how he feels he could have saved him from the drama he found himself in. He then goes on to say the East Coast vs. West Coast feud was good for hip-hop until things got out of hand and became more than rap, and says he could’ve also saved Mike Tyson years ago and how he would’ve gone about doing so.

Violent hip-hop generally falls into three distinct categories: gun clapping, physical beating, or slasher flick-style horrorcore songs. M.O.P., Grand Daddy I.U. and Big L prefer to reign down hot lead on all “foes and enemies,” while Kool G Rap and The Convicts subscribe to the belief that a punch in the face can solve all of the world’s problems. Meanwhile, serial killers and cannibals are the violent protagonists of choice for Esham, Gangsta N.I.P. and the Gravediggaz. We’ll explore these all in depth herein.
