2023 has been one big, long celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, so why not finish the year with the same theme?
That’s what CBS is planning. The network just announced that it’s planning to air a live, two-hour concert special called A Grammy Salute to 50 Years of Hip-Hop on December 10.
The lineup is set to include Black Thought, LL Cool J and Queen Latifah, all of whom were also part of the Grammys salute from earlier this year, as well as Bun B, Common, De La Soul, Jermaine Dupri, J.J. Fad, Talib Kweli, The Lady of Rage, MC Sha-Rock, Monie Love, The Pharcyde, Questlove, Rakim, Remy Ma, Uncle Luke, and Yo-Yo.
Just announced are additional artists added to the lineup, which includes Arrested Development, Big Daddy Kane, Black Sheep, Cypress Hill, Digable Planets, DJ Quik, E-40, GloRilla, Gunna, Jeezy, Juvenile, Latto, Luniz, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shanté, Spinderella, Three 6 Mafia, Too $hort, T.I., 2 Chainz, Warren G, and YG.
Like the Grammys tribute back in February, Questlove and LL Cool J will serve as executive producers of the special, which tapes on November 8 at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California.
