(Frequencies of Real Creative Energy),” he revealed in an Instagram post.
In addition to the aforementioned, plenty of other hip hop legends will be joining along on rotating dates. Queen Latifah, Rakim, Common, Method Man, Redman, Jadakiss, Big Boi, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ice T, Juvenile, and Rick Ross are among the many names listed.
