Scheduled to perform with special guests Scratch, and Pitch Black on Thursday, June 10
Venue of Scottsdale
Still holding out hope they'll find those pesky WMDs? While Saddam's hoard may never be discovered, you'll uncover plenty here at this showcase of East Coast hip-hop legends. The Mash Out Posse (Lil' Fame and Billy Danze) of Brooklyn's infamous Brownsville section bring their sarin-tipped ghetto rhymes and experimental rap-rock warheads. ("We the first to really get that shit right since Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C.," MOP producer Laze E. Laze recently boasted, and MOP will be doing a set each of hip-hop and metal with a full band.) DJ Scratch, beatmaker/producer/vocalist with EPMD, Busta Rhymes, DMX, the Roots, and LL Cool J, will truck in his battlefield nukes. And former Organized Konfusion MC Pharoahe Monch will envelop you in a cloud of toxic intelligence. Bring your gas mask, Geiger counter and body armor, and gird yourself for apocalyptic combat.
