(Akiit.com) The 2007 “Rock the Bells” Hip-Hop Festival is gearing up to hit major US cities this summer, featuring Wu-Tang Clan, Nas and Rage Against the Machine as headliners.

Rock the Bells, hosted by Supernatural, Rahzel and DJ Hi-Tek, is a concert-style festival known for “representing, respecting and recognizing the very best and brightest talent who create social, political and conscious Hip-Hop music.”

With 15 additional tour stops added, the festival will feature Hip-Hop artists like Cypress Hill, The Roots, Mos Def, EPMD, MF Doom, Pharoahe Monch
and many more. Special guest Public Enemy will make an appearance to celebrate their 20th anniversary in the music business.

“I have been blessed to be a part of a lot of big shows, but this year’s festivals aren’t just the biggest or best shows in Hip-Hop, they are some of the most important musical experiences overall,” Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union, the festival’s sponsor, said. “It has never been more critical to the success of quality music. The live Hip-Hop experience is so special because there are just so few happening. I can’t remember the last time this many quality emcees and musicians have ever been gathered to showcase their talents. The summer of 2007 will be remembered as the year that quality Hip-Hop came back.”

The tour will begin July 28 in New York City and will wrap up on the west coast in late August.

Tickets go on sale Sat. Mar. 31 at 10:00 am at all Ticketmaster locations.
