Celebrating 30 years showcasing the best talent in Hip Hop, Lyricist Lounge welcomes a lineup of legendary rappers for one night only in Oakland.
Lyricist Lounge was born as a series of open mic events hosted in a small studio apartment in the Lower East Side of New York City. Founded in 1991 by Anthony Marshall and Danny Castro, the duo dreamt of creating a space for raw talent and unsigned hype throughout the five boroughs of the city and beyond.
This dream became a reality and resulted in three albums, seven domestic tours, two seasons of the MTV sketch comedy series, “The Lyricist Lounge Sketch Show”, two DVD releases and countless showcases featuring big name talent such as: Mos Def, Dave Chappelle, Talib Kweli, 50 Cent, Eminem, Notorious B.I.G., Sean "Diddy" Combs, Tracee Ellis Ross, The Black Eyed Peas, Jay-Z, The Roots, Tracy Morgan, Common, De La Soul, Q-Tip, Mobb Deep, Fat Joe, Wyclef, Snoop, Rakim and many others.
