Rock The Bells 2010’s *EPIC* Lineup

Yesterday, we read a rumor that Lauryn Hill would be performing The Miseduction of Lauryn Hill – in its entirety(!!!), Roger Waters/Pink Floyd style – and that A Tribe Called Quest would also be playing a full album. Unfortunately, neither is on the bill. But LUCKILY, check out the dope acts that are, below.

Performing full classic albums:

  • Wu-Tang ClanEnter The 36 Chambers (they never performed the whole thing live before, and Rza‘s son may be filling in for ODB. EPIC)
  • Rakim Paid In Full
  • KRS-OneCriminal Minded
  • Slick RickThe Great Adventures Of

Also scheduled are Murs & 9th Wonder, Clipse, Immortal Technique (from SampleSaleShop.com‘s hometown, NYC), and Street Sweeper Social Club (Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine‘s new band), and many more. There will be b-boy and b-girl performances, and possibly a tribute to the late Guru. Click on the image to zoom in on the full lineup.

Hollywood’s New It-Bag: Presenting… The Schitbag

Ah, the glorious it-bag. Balenciaga‘s Motorcycle bag, Marc Jacobs’ Stam bag, the ever present Birkin by Hermes. And now there’s the Schitbag.


We shit you not: The Schitbag, similar to a hairstylist’s bag, is basically a fanny pack with a shoulder strap. How did they come up with this name? Did someone see it and go, “Oh em gee! I can put, like, ALL my shit in it!” ? Although cute and functional, it’s not that big. They could have just called it “The Rachel” or something.


Schitbag’s website claims it’s the new Hollywood craze, and “because it leaves the hands and shoulders free, it’s  more than an accessory—it’s a natural asset.” ASSet … Really? They are apparently (not making this up) produced by “LeSchitte Designs“.

If you see people rocking the Schitbag, send the pics our way – celebs and normal people.

Would YOU put your shit in this bag? Come on, names aside, don’t shit on it.
