Art of Rap pays homage to Mobb Deep’s Prodigy with Havoc and hip-hop’s biggest veterans and special legendary guests.
This electrifying tribute brings together a who’s-who of some of the hottest artists in hip-hop: DMX, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Mobb Deep, O50, Harlem 6 and Mysonne, hosted by DJ Chuck Chillout and legendary surprise guests to celebrate the music and life of Prodigy.
Songwriter, producer and actor DMX is a true hip-hop pioneer, a superstar of the 1990s rap scene and still one of the genre’s most popular artists. DMX is best known for his top-selling album, ... And Then There Was X (which included the hit single, "Party Up”), and for his BET reality series, DMX: Soul of a Man.
A trendsetter in the genre of Mafioso rap, Raekwon is a longtime member of the multi-platinum Wu-Tang Clan. Since the 1995 release of his acclaimed solo debut, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx ..., Raekwon has recorded several other solo projects in addition to his continuing work with Wu-Tang. Also appearing at Art of Rap at NJPAC is another Wu-Tang Clan member, Ghostface Killah, who has earned raves for his fast-paced flow and emotional stream-of-consciousness narratives, displayed on solo projects like Ironman and the 2006 hit, Fishscale.
