Rakim performs at Rock the Bells, Aug. 29 at Merriweather Post Pavilion (Kyle Gustafson)

If hip-hop died for you before the decade of Eminem, Lil' Wayne, Jay-Z and now, Drake, began, the lineup of this year's hip-hop roadshow demonstrates you haven't missed much. Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, some configuration of the Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, KRS-One, Slick Rick, Lauryn Hill and a bevy of other vets and up-and-comers alike all appear at this late-summer festival, which arrives at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Aug. 29.
