Nas and Black Star Headlining Colorado’s Red Rocks Concert
Three of hip-hop’s iconic stars will be performing under one bill at the prestigious Red Rocks in Colorado this summer. Rappers Nas and Black Star (Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli) will performing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Other notable rappers appearing on the bill include Pusha T and Brother Ali as well as Colorado’s ReMINDers. The concert will take place on July 31. Tickets will go on sale Friday (April 13) at Songkick.com and range from $59.50 to $89.50.
This is going to be a great rap concert as the Red Rocks is surrounded by massive, red-colored rocks that create amazing acoustics and the scenic views of the stars will tingle the senses as well. Artists like Chance the Rapper and DJ Mustard have performed at Red Rocks, making it one of the most incredible venues to see concert performances.
Meanwhile, it looks like a Black Star album is not in the works just yet. Back in February, Bey announced that a new Black Star album is coming with Malib on the production.
“New Black Star with Madlib, Talib Kweli, Yasiin, coming soon!” Bey said during a Madlib DJ set in Denver, Colorado. “All Madlib, all day. 2018, Madlib, Black Star. Madlib Black Star.”
However, Kweli said that Bey jumped the gun with his announcement. “It looks like it might happen,” he told HipHopDX. “I found out on the internet the same way y’all did. We’ve been talking about doing an album with Madlib for years. That’s been an idea we’ve had for so long, but for him to make that announcement...I didn’t know he was going to make the announcement."
