Rock the Bells to Feature Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Eazy-E Holograms


Rock the Bells will mark its 10th anniversary with some very special guests:  The traveling hip-hop festival will take a page from Coachella’s Tupac hologram last year and feature “virtual performances” from the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E.  According to Pitchfork, the former N.W.A. rapper will “perform” alongside Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, while Ol’ Dirty Bastard will be joined by his former group the Wu-Tang Clan, who have reconvened for a new album planned for a July release.

Other acts set for Rock the Bells include Common, Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock), Rakim, Talib Kweli, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Curren$y, Juicy J, Kid Cudi and Tyler, the Creator.

Rock the Bells kicks off September 7th and 8th in San Bernardino, California, and will make stops in Mountain View, California (September 14th and 15th); Washington D.C. (September 28th and 29th); and Rutherford, New Jersey (October 4th and 5th). More artists will be announced next month. For more information, visit Rock the Bells’ website.

What do you think?  One too many holograms or you can’t wait!?

Kendrick Lamar talks Coachella and writing with Dr. Dre

Compton bred rapper Kendrick Lamar hit up Power 106 in Los Angeles to chat it up with our boys Fuzzy and Just-N-Credible .  Let’s just say if you’re not at Coachella Valley Music Festival this weekend and next weekend in Indio, CA….shame on you!  Word Has It that Dr. Dre is pulling out all stops…and we’ll be there both weekends!  Pop the hood to see what K.Dot has to say:


It’s OFFICIAL!  According to our reliable sources at L.A. based promoter Goldenvoice, Coachella 2011 sold out as of 3:35pm (PST)….and in a RECORD timing of six days!  The lineup, which includes Kanye West, Lauryn Hill and Duran Duran, was announced last week. Tickets went on sale last Friday, Jan. 21.  For all of you that bought your tickets……NO U AINT RADIO will see you there!

Coachella 2011 damn near sold out!

Okay peeps, don’t say we didn’t warn you!  We’ve done our research and Ticketmaster‘s website reveals that the only type of tickets left for Coachella 2011 are 3-Day passes packaged with a shuttle pass for offsite parking.  We checked with our inside connect at Goldenvoice, and she confirmed that sellout is not only close, but is happening at record breaking speed for the 11 year old festival. In other words, if you’re planning on seeing Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Kings of Leon, nas & Damien Marley, Erykah Badu, Duran Duran, Wiz Khalifah, Raphael Saadiq, Cee-Lo Green (need we go on) all in one weekend at this year’s festival, you better beg, borrow or steal a credit card immediately!
