The first-ever HIp-Hop food court experience — Trill Mealz Food Court — will be featured at the Rock the Bells Festival taking place in Queens, NY on Aug. 6.
The Trill Mealz Food Court is curated by rap legend Bun B and will include a selection of food and beverage vendors from legendary Hip-Hop artists including Nas (Sweet Chick ), E-40 (Goon With The Spoon), Jadakiss and Styles P (Juices for Life), Ghostface Killah (Killah Koffee), and Mia X (Team Whip Them Pots). The "fully immersive experience" will also include local Queens-based restaurants and NYC favorites.
“Food and Hip-Hop are both forms of entertainment and self-expression,” says Rock the Bells founder LL COOL J. “Food has always been a theme within Hip-Hop and are uniquely connected. Hosting the Trill Mealz Food Court at the Rock The Bells Festival at Hip-Hop’s birthplace of New York City, allows us to really connect with the community and create a fully immersive way to experience Hip-Hop.”
Bun says he's particularly excited about bringing the food court experience to Rock the Bells, largely because it's so unique.
"For the first time ever, I will be curating a Hip-Hop food court at Rock The Bells Festival — something that has never happened anywhere in the face of the world,” says Bun, who's recently been focusing on pop-ups with his popular Trill Burgers, which will also be available at the festival. "For me, it's the food now. I still make music. I still perform, but this is my passion and it still keeps me in the culture."
