As we told you, last night was the official Rock The Bells Launch Party, where this year's RTB lineup was announced. While there have been some unconfirmed rumors about some of this years participants, here is the official lineup as of now according to Guerilla Union. RTB will hit four major North American cities this summer, The NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA (8/21), Shoreline Amphitheater in San Francisco (8/22), Governor's Island in New York (8/28), wrapping up at the Merriweather Pavilion in Washington D.C. (8/29). You can visit rockthebells.net for ticketing info as well as the exact lineup per city. Now, for the lineup: Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, Krs-One, Slick Rick, and more will be performing their groundbreaking albums in their entirety (I'm sure you can guess which ones). Other performers on the bill will include Street Sweeper Social Club, Murs & 9th Wonder, Wiz Khalifa, Clipse, Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks, Brother Ali, DJ Muggs & Ill Bill, Big Sean, and Yelawolf. The show will be hosted by Supernatural and DJ Rocky Rock. RTB will be supporting the Haiti relief effort by contributing portions of ticket proceeds to Hip Hop And Hope For Haiti. Since it's not so much fun just reading off the lineup, you can watch Supernat, in what now has become tradition, with his freestyle of the entire lineup at last night's launch party.

UPDATE: A lot of y'all seemed to have a problem with the lineup, so hopefully this will change your mind. Guerilla Union announced today that the tour will now include Snoop Dogg performing his debut album Doggystyle, A Tribe Called Quest performing Midnight Marauders, DJ Premier with a tribute to Gang Starr, and very special guest Lauryn Hill. Tickets go on sale June 12th via ticketfly. Check the updated flyer after the jump.
