When a festival’s debut features the entire Wu-Tang Clan as headliners (after a lengthy crew tour hiatus), it’s probably safe to say that it’s made for fans, by fans. Fast forward to the year 2013, and almost an entire decade has flew by since Guerilla Union’s Rock The Bells Festival first presented an experience that many felt was truly designed for the Hip-Hop heads. Keeping that in mind, G.U. put together a video montage highlighting some of the best moments from the festival’s historic run. The 11-minute time capsule features classic performance footage from artists such as KRS-One, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Jurassic 5, and The Pharcyde, to name a few. And with the festival pushing the envelope again this year by featuring digital performances by Eazy-E and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, it’s a safe bet Rock the Bells still has a lot more left in the tank for years to come. Related: Rock The Bells 2012 Live Stream (Video)
