“I’m inspired by life”, exclaims headliner DMX. “where music has pulled me through dark times & it’s all light ahead!”  “Everywhere you look you see legends & hot artists”, states Hieroglyphics, “we are proud to be a part of this great celebration for Hip Hop!” “There’s more love & support for Hip Hop around the world than ever before”, says frontman Parish Smith of EPMD, “the people demanded we return & we’re always trying to give the people what they want!”

Hot music, hotter crowds & the hottest days of the year made way for an epic meltdown of creativity, entrepreneurial swag & dynamics, brought to you by INDIEPOWER TV’s Man Of The Year Chang Weisburg & CUERILLA NATION (to be inducted in the mighty IES HIP HOP HONORS next Aug 7 in N.Hollywood). With a successful slate of events, from PAID DUES to SMOKEOUT, from SPRING GATHERING to the ROCK THE BELLS Tour, Weisburg has consistently been a voice of the independents & the ultimate music fan for the fans. “Every year I take a break after the event & dream big, WHO would I most like to see & go after pulling the dream off in reality!” This year even reuniting BONE THUGS, whose leader KRAYZIE BONE exclaimed “INDIEPOWER TV is my favorite program & ROCK THE BELLS my favorite tour, so I’m more than blessed to be here spreading our tribute to EAZY-E & Hip Hop together!”
