AB 2799 & Hip Hop

Hip-hop's 50th anniversary went off without a hitch as Run-D.M.C. had their final performance in August at the Hip Hop 50 Live concert at Yankee Stadium. 50 Cent and Busta Rhymes celebrated future generations of rappers at 50 Cent's The Final Lap Tour and female MCs like Queen Latifah, Remy Ma and MC Lyte got their flowers in Netflix's "Ladies First: A Story of Women in Hip-Hop."

Rappers including 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Nipsey Hussle, Pop Smoke, Takeoff and more who died due to gun violence were incorporated into the celebrations despite their physical absence.
