DJ Cassidy will unite 25 Hip Hop legends for his “Pass the Mic Live” to be held at Radio Music City Hall in celebration of Hip Hop’s 50th anniversary.

The concert is scheduled for July 21st and it will be a one night only event. Other featured acts that are scheduled to perform are Kid N’ Play, Kurtis Blow, Treach, and Monie Love to name a few.

DJ Cassidy gives a statement to Billboard about Hip Hop means to him. “As a 10-year-old DJ, I grew up idolizing every single one of these legendary hip-hop heavyweights,” DJ Cassidy tells Billboard. “Their records were my first pieces of vinyl. Their posters were on my wall. Their tapes were in my Walkman. Together, they laid the foundation for what was to transform the world musically, culturally and beyond. I am truly grateful to be celebrating them and their profound impact on the culture, just days from the 50thbirthday of hip-hop [Aug. 11] and minutes away from where Kool Herc DJ’d the first hip-hop party in 1973. Uniting 25 native New York icons of hip-hop’s golden age on one stage for one night in the birthplace of hip-hop, also my hometown, will be the greatest honor of my life.”

This will be the second installment of the “Pass The Mic Live” series when the inaugural show is set for May 12th at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The concert will feature Ja Rule, Ashanti, Fabolous, and Lil’ Kim.
