(AllHipHop News) Black Thought, lead MC from The Roots and a member of Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night Show Band, is set to host the “Lyricist Lounge’s 20 Year Anniversary” All-Star Reunion Party this Wednesday (May 23) at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City.
Sponsored by AllHipHop.com, Rocksmith, Real Talk NYC, and Fusicology, the party will bring together performances from Bush Babies and Homeboy Sandman, along with several surprise performances in a legendary “ALL-STAR Cypher.”
Beyond Wednesday, the “Lyricist Lounge 20 Year Anniversary” celebration will continue with several commemorative events throughout New York following the kickoff party, including outdoor concerts in city parks in partnership with Summerstage and Celebrate Brooklyn.
Paying homage to the pioneers of Hip-Hop culture since 1991, the Lyricist Lounge has sought to promote up-and-coming raw artists, and in doing so, has facilitated three albums, seven domestic tours, two seasons of an MTV sketch comedy, called “The Lyricist Lounge Show“, and two DVD releases.
