For the past several years Merriweather has hosted the biggest hip hop festival/tour out there, Rock The Bells. 2010's monster of a bill rolls through these parts on Sunday.
This year Columbia, Maryland will play host to A Tribe Called Quest, Wu Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg, KRS One, Rakim, Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick and much more. Staples of our youth - chances are that one of the albums that pissed off your mother years ago will be played in it's entirety on Sunday. Enter The 36 Chambers, Doggystyle, Midnight Marauders, The Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Paid in Full, and Criminal Minded will all be performed in full by their respective artists.
I'm pretty sure you at least know someone or others sister who once got caught smoking a blunt while listening to Doggystyle in her bedroom back in high school. Regardless, spend your Sunday afternoon at Merriweather getting schooled on hip hop classics.
