Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Run DMC, more perform

NEW YORK CITY – Hip-hop went all in for its 50th birthday celebration.

Hip-hop luminaries lit up the Hip Hop 50 Live concert stage Friday and fired up the crowd at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, the home of the musical genre and cultural movement, which surpassed its beginnings and continues to prove that everything Black culture touches turns to gold (and triple-platinum, and diamond).

Featuring performances from Nas, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Lil’ Kim, Wu-Tang Clan and Fat Joe, the concert gathered performers from all regions and each of the five decades and shined a spotlight on those who paved the way for the next generation of rap, some of whom hit the stage.
