The Paid Dues musical festival went down this past weekend on March 30 at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA and AllHipHop.com was in the house! With thousands of eager fans converging upon 3 stages throughout the day to hear some of Hip-Hop’s top independent and well-known artists, Paid Dues didn’t disappoint as acts such as Tech N9ne, Mobb Deep, Macklemore, Scarface, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, WC, Suga Free, Juicy J, Killa Mike, Souls of Mischief, and Black Hippy brought down the house. As always at Paid Dues, underground artists were at the forefront as well with artists and groups like Styles of Beyond, Flatbush Zombies, and many others. New rising artists like Joey Badass, Problem, Bad Lucc, Skeme, Vince Staples and Hopsin were also given the spotlight to showcase why they are some of rap’s best new names.
