Masta Ace performing live

On August 27th rap veteran Masta Ace will be headlining a thing called Serious As Cancer at New York’s Highline Ballroom alongside fellow urban legends Sadat X, O.C. and our very own Rahzel. It’s hosted by D-Stroy and supporting on the 1’s and 2’s will be a who’s who of NY hip-hop vinyl jocks including DJ JS-1, DJ Riz & DJ A-Vee. The best thing about this show is that as the title suggests, 100% of the proceeds from the show will go to benefit children’s cancer research. A lot of rap artists claim to “for the childrens.” But this on is actually for the childrens. So do the right thing and cop your tickets here (see flyer after the jump for full event details.)
