In 1973, Hip-Hop got its humble start in The Bronx when 18-year-old Clive Campbell aka DJ Kool Herc isolated the instrumentals on funk tracks, switched beats and created a novel sound that hadn’t yet been heard.

Now, a half century later, fans from all over the globe are returning to the genre’s birthplace to celebrate Hip-Hop 50 with some of the biggest stars from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, ’10s and ’20s at Yankee Stadium on Friday, Aug. 11.

The one-night-only event will feature mega stars like Run-DMC, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and Lil Kim.

They’ll be joined by icons Nas, Fat Joe, Common, Ghostface Killah and Lupe Fiasco.

Of course, the founding father of Hip-Hop DJ Kool Herc will be there too.

And if you want to take part in the extravaganza, it isn’t too late — as of now, last-minute tickets are still available.

At the time of publication, the lowest price we could find on tickets was $57 before fees on Vivid Seats.
