#DXCLUSIVE: The original co-host suggestions there's more to come.
New York City, NY – I! MTV Raps aired from 1988 to 1995 and since then has become synonymous with the Golden Era of Hip Hop. June 1, Brooklyn's Barclay Center will host the Yo! MTV Raps: 30th Anniversary of the Experience with a lineup of stars.
Big Daddy Kane, the Juice Crew, Eric B. and Rakim, Doug E. Fresh, KRS-One, Boogie Down Productions, EPMD, Public Enemy's Flavor Flav, Melle Mel, the Five Furious, Pharcyde, Brand Nubian, Nice and Smooth, Onyx, Black Sheep, Das EFX, Special education, Yo-Yo, and Kid Capri are expected to make an appearance.
As in the day, weekend host Fab 5 Freddy, and the day of the week crew – Ed Lover, Doctor Dre and T-Money – will headline the event along with DJ Skribble, Kool DJ Red Alert and Chuck Chillout.
"We met with the idea that it would be a great tribute to the I love' 90s Tour," Dr. Dre explains to HipHopDX. "We realized that it should not be Me! MTV Raps Tour. We have reached our manager, Charlie Stettle, and he went to work."
When it comes to a reboot of the O. G. tv, MTV says that "reinvent the franchise to a new generation, one that is both linear and digital series through its platform." But Dre is not sure how he's going to play.
"That's what they say," he says. "I don't know how it will work in the world today. The only thing about that I! MTV Raps was the videos were very important. Today the streaming service world, you're not sure how it would work. I'm not sure what he plans to do. All I know is the 1 of June, we will be at the Barclays Center to celebrate the show and its success at the international level, national and global".
The 2BlindMics podcast host adds, "It could be coming to a city near you. Many more announcements to come."
MTV will livestream the arena of concerts in your web page.
