“I am super excited to rock the stage with my brother LL at the Rock The Bells festival on August 6 at Forest Hills Stadium," Busta Rhymes said. “This is going to be legendary.”
LL COOL J called Busta's performance a "can't miss" addition to the line-up.
“Everyone in Hip-Hop knows BUSTA has a can’t miss stage show,” he said, before adding, “Onyx live is a must see and producers / rappers HAVOC of Mobb Deep and Large Professor will represent Queens to the fullest!”
In addition to the performances, the festival will feature the first-ever Hip-Hop food court experience, the Trill Mealz Food Court.
