DMX is set to make his highly-anticipated return to the UK after more than 15 years of absence! The legendary artist entered the world of rap back in the 90s with his debut studio album ‘It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot’, which dropped in 1998. He has since released seven studio albums, the most recent being 2012s Undisputed. His most iconic releases to date includine 1998s Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and 1999s …And Then There Was X, both of which reached No.1 on the US Billboard 200 and have been certified platinum numerous times.
Fronted by Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P, The Lox have written and rapped on hits by the likes of Puff Daddy, the Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and Mariah Carey. The New York-based rap trio’s debut album Money, Power & Respect went platinum in 1998 peaked at No.3 on the Billboard 200 chart and was ranked No.1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-hop Albums. Their follow-up records We Are The Streets, The Trinity EP and Filthy America… It’s Beautiful also all reached critical acclaim.
Gang Starr will be performing a very special Legacy set with a live band and a visual experience, paying tribute to original founding member Guru. The influential hip hop group have recently dropped their first album in 16 years, One of the Best Yet, produced entirely by DJ Premier with vocals from the one and only Guru.
