The world of rap and hip-hop is in a strange place at the moment…. whilst the past 12-24 months have seen rises in some of the unique names in the genre (Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper), some naysayers often agree that the ‘golden era’ for the genre was cemented in the mid 90-s all the way until the mid 2000’s….

With that in mind, we’ve managed to track down some of the finest examples of hip-hop and rap concerts, and sets, of all time…. well, that’s our opinion anyhow.

Put aside a couple of hours of your time, and reacquaint yourselves with the likes of Jay Z, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and many many more…. Oh, and if you have any to add, let us know, and we’ll happily consider it on our list!
