Video Premiere: RBMA World Tour 2011 in New York City
- Words: Patric Fallon
This video piece marks the final installment of our series of video premieres for the Red Bull Music Academy World Tour, which finds the culture/music hub traipsing about in the familiar environs of New York City. The concept is pretty simple: RBMA brings together the creators of five of the most iconic hip-hop albums of all time from each of the five boroughs of NYC. Featuring Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang Clan, Slick Rick, The Diplomats, and Black Moon, this closing episode of RBMA's world travels is easily the most star-studded, if not the most interesting, too. And don't forget that we've been in Madrid, Spain covering the madness of this year's official Red Bull Music Academy over this past week. As the festivities come to a close in the next few days, you can check out all of our ongoing coverage here.
