    Gods of Rap II

    Following the sold-out UK and European dates last year, Gods of Rap returns this April for three very special UK arena dates. 

    Headliner Nas headlines a stacked bill that includes full sets from DMX, The Lox and Gang Starr who are all set to perform a huge, once in a lifetime show at Manchester Arena on Thursday 23rd April followed by a return to London at The O2 on Friday 24th April and a final date at Birmingham Arena on Saturday 25th April. All shows will be hosted and presented by the legendary Just Blaze.

    A hip-hop icon since the early 1990s, Nas emerged from the Queensbridge neighbourhood of Long Island City to become one of the greatest MC’s of all time. Nas has since gone on to sell over 20 million albums worldwide over the span of his legendary career and received 13 Grammy awards in the process. His recent album The Lost Tapes 2 sees a compilation of selected unreleased tracks from Nas’ last four albums that he has released – Hip-Hop is Dead (2006), Untitled (2008), Life is Good (2012), and his most recent Nasir (2018).

    A well-known veteran in the world of rap DMX began his career in the ‘90s with his debut studio album, It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, released in 1998. Throughout his epic musical career, he has released seven studio albums the most recent, Undisputed, in 2012. Album's Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, (1998) & …And Then There Was X (1999) continue to be two of his most iconic. Both albums peaked at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 and certified platinum numerous times. DMX makes a much-anticipated return to the UK after a 15 year + absence.
