Get ready for some old school jams: The Annual All-Stars of Hip Hop concert returns on Sunday, January 18th. The just-announced lineup will feature Public Enemy, Naughty by Nature, KRS-One, Big Daddy Kane, MC Lyte, and Special Ed.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $55.45 to $87.35 after online fees. For a true hip-hop fan, that’s a small price to pay to see all these greats in action.
