Roc-A-Fella Sold Out Reunion Concert

The Gramercy Theater was packed to the brim last night for the Roc-A-Fella Reunion Concert. Without Hov or Beans, the Young Gunz, Freeway and Memphis Bleek held things down with special guests, Mos Def, Peedi Crakk and N.O.R.E. With Young Gurue and Just Blaze on the turntables, here’s a recap of what you missed.

    no hov, no beans I wouldn’t payed to see that.

  • Devante

    I don’t know what’s more shocking.. .The fact that Bleek, Crack and Nore called it a re-union or the fact that those 3 packed a building.

    Sad

    You have to respect this. I don’t expect any 90s babies to really understand this moment but this is historic. The Roc use to be THE label. Every member on their roster was buzzing and eating good. Jay had an empire for real. It would be dope to see Jay do something with them again but Jay has accomplished so much more since then I doubt it. Props to State P, good to see yall still have fans.

    ROC in the building. it is kinda shocking though to see they packed the house like that after all the years gone by. Bleek probably paid for all this out of his own pocket.

    Thats dope of them, but that’s more along the lines of State Property and Co. than actually a ROC REunion, especially with no Jay or Beans. Hell, no Kanye even. Im glad Just and Young Guru was able to help out though.

    Somebody told T.I.(he wouldnt say who) “When you have sold all the tickets you can, to the fight; nothing else will sell but the reunion”. The concert was sponsored by Dusse liquor

  • JWhistles

    Why cant the hip hop culture accept old classics doing shows? Its pretty retarded. Bands like Aerosmith tour every year playing 40 year old songs yet a hip hop artist from 10 years ago does a show and people have to hate on it.

    I still bump Bleek and Nore. Love smokin to get high on the I95 and when Banned From TV comes on i put that shit up as loud as it goes.

    Without HOV and the BROADWAY BULLY, there is no Rocafella. Just a bunch of other guys that rhyme.

    how about a shady reunion one day without eminem, or a ruff ryders reunion without dmx, or a disturbing the peace reunion without Luda, you get the picture….

  • Alyx

    a Jackson 5 reunion without Michael

    I was at the show.. it was packed, but the crowd was dead. It was sad to see a NYC crowd, not really supporting the Roc.

    Seemed like 95% of the crowd was just hoping to have scored $25 Jay-Z tickets. The dudes up there performing.. if you were a real Roc fan back in the day.. they ran through classics… got zero reaction.

    I’m 28, and I was one of the younger people in the crowd.. I expected people to appreciate the show, but the DJ playing Meek Mill and Trinidad James got WAY more reaction before the show, than the actual performers did during the show.

    I personally consider State Prop Vol 2 a classic.. and I even put the first Young Gunz album almost to that level, so I enjoyed the show regardless, but it would have been a lot better if the crowd were actual Roc fans, instead of the same typical NYC crowd that has already abandoned East Coast rap in the last ten years anyway.

    I understand how it must of happened… but Bleek had no business closing the show.. even still.. dude performed the Intro off Vol. 2 and got NO reaction.. that’s crazy to me. That, alone, should have gotten a big reaction out of a New York crowd… but NYC rap really must be dead.
