PICS: Rock The Bells @ Governor’s Island, NY

The third date of this year’s Rock The Bells festival tour hit the tri-state area yesterday and the stars were all out. Photographer Ernest Estimé was there to capture the events from this night that might never repeat itself.

UPDATE: Better coverage here. More pics @ VillageSlum.

Related: Lauryn’s set list, thanks to samylei via Miss Info.

See pics of Lauryn Hill, A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop (Doggy) Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim, Jay & Swizz Beatz, all after the jump.

    ===================================
    She’s gonna fake like she’s back to normal to try to get another big check outta Columbia but let’s face reality.

    She’s been Crazy Lauryn for too long to just bounce back to sanity.

  29. Mag Says:

    Lol I wouldn’t pay for this line up.

  30. Hopp Says:

    Why call your debut album, after 2 mixtapes, The Preview ?

  31. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    You mentioned a hip-hop album without rapping. Will we ever hear a Dr. Dre instrumental album?

    Oh yeah, that’s in the works. An instrumental album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I have the ideas for it. I want to call it The Planets. I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. [Laughs.] It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I’m gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I’ve been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It’ll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.
    ===========================================
    This nigga Dre has gone wayyyyy left.
