All Stars Of Hip-Hop history
The brainchild of Philadelphia-based Platinum Productions, the first All-Stars Of Hip Hop was held in 2012, with performers including Raekwon, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh. Over the years since, the lineups have included a wide variety of male and female artists and groups, such as Ice Cube, Eve, Salt-n-Pepa and Kid 'n Play. The performers represent every era of hip-hop since it broke through into the mainstream in the 1980s, and audiences at an All Stars Of Hip Hop show can expect to hear everything from New Jack Swing to soul and gospel, as well as pure hip-hop and rap.
The 2017 lineup features the biggest names to grace the All Stars Of Hip Hop stage yet, most notably Grammy award-winning artist and actor Ludacris, and rapper/producer Busta Rhymes, who has collaborated with everyone from Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey to Pharrell and P. Diddy. Other performers joining these international stars on stage will be rapper DMX and Trina.
The annual event coincides with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, and takes place at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. The legendary venue was the country's first convention center. It was opened in 1929, and since then, some of the world's most famous artists have performed at the venue, including Elton John, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. The arena can seat almost 15,000 people, creating an electric atmosphere when filled with enthusiastic music lovers.
Many people attend the All Stars Of Hip Hop event as part of a holiday trip to Atlantic City, the Las Vegas of the east. Each year, the concert is followed by an after-show party, where additional performances by well-known hip-hop acts take place.
