It’s a sad day for Hip-Hop when a tour that features Wu-Tang Clan, Black Hippy, J. Cole, Talib Kweli, Big K.R.I.T., Rakim, Pusha T, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh, Too Short and many more gets cancelled for lack of ticket sales (in its 10th Anniversary Year no less). But, that’s exactly what just happened with the Rock the Bells tour. Here’s what the promoter had to say:

“First and foremost, it is with great sadness and disappointment that we must cancel the Washington, DC and New York City Rock the Bells dates due to lack of ticket sales. I, along with our staff, the artists, and all of the sponsors, media partners, local promoters, and radio stations involved are thankful for our supporters and the fans that planned on attending. It’s extremely unfortunate that we can’t complete the last half of the 10th Anniversary Rock the Bells tour. We did everything in our power to save the show. Unfortunately, the financial loss would have been devastating. This festival has been ten years in the making. I am truly sorry we could not produce the show for all the fans who did buy their ticket in support of.”

There are a lot of Heads who clamor about Real Hip-Hop. It’s time we support it.
