Two of the most influential rappers of all time are teaming up for a special $10 show at The Novo in downtown Los Angeles.
Old school rap legends KRS-One and Slick Rick will perform at The Novo by Microsoft at L.A. Live on Tuesday, Aug. 8. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10am on Wednesday, June 28, right here on AXS.com.
For those who don’t know, KRS-One is widely considered one of the best rappers of the late ‘80s and ‘90s. Starting with the release of Boogie Down Productions’ landmark 1987 album Criminal Minded, KRS-One became one of the most respected MCs of his generation thanks to his mix of politically-minded lyrics, boom bap production and an infectious reverence for hip-hop as capital “A” Art.
As for Slick Rick, his career got started thanks to guest spots on the Doug E. Fresh singles “The Show” and “La Di Da Di.” After becoming just the third artist signed to the iconic Def Jam Records, he dropped The Great Adventures of Slick Rick in late 1988, which included “Children’s Story,” one of the most important rap singles of the decade. Revisit the song in the video above.
Both artists have left an indelible mark on the world of hip-hop and at $10, their show is priced more like 1987 tickets than 2017 ones. This show is sure to sell out quickly, so get your tickets right here when they go on sale on June 28 and keep it on AXS.com for more on these hip-hop trailblazers.
