Sorry, D.M.V. hip-hop fans – Rock the Bells has been canceled.
Promoters behind the hip-hop mega-concert are expected to announce that they’re putting the kibosh on the D.C. tour stop -- which was scheduled to take place on the grounds of RFK Stadium on Saturday and Sunday – later this afternoon, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.
As of Wednesday evening, the concert appeared to be all systems go, with organizers tweeting: “#RocktheBellsDC is almost here! Who's catching @BIGKRIT's set this weekend?!” This weekend’s bill at RFK also promised performances from Kendrick Lamar, Wale, J. Cole and many others.
The touring festival kicked off its 10th-anniversary go-round in San Bernadino, Calif., earlier this month and was reportedly dogged by various logistical snags.
