Questlove to Executive Produce Grand Hip-Hop Spectacle at Grammy’s “50 Years of Hip-Hop” Special


Questlove, the founding member of The Roots, who previously curated the 50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop special for the Grammy Awards in February, is set to lead a much grander celebration later this year.

CBS and the Recording Academy have unveiled “A Grammy Salute to 50 Years of Hip-Hop,” a live concert special that will commemorate Hip-Hop on an extensive scale. The event is scheduled to air on Sunday, December 10th, 2023, on CBS.

The show will be recorded on November 8th at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood and will feature an impressive lineup of artists, including Black Thought, Bun B, Common, De La Soul, Jermaine Dupri, J.J. Fad, the Lady Of Rage, LL Cool J, MC Sha-Rock, Monie Love, the Pharcyde, Queen Latifah, Questlove, Rakim, Remy Ma, Uncle Luke, and Yo-Yo. More acts are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

Questlove isn’t the only executive producer for this event; he is joined by Jesse Collins, Shawn Gee, Dionne Harmon, Claudine Joseph, LL COOL J, Fatima Robinson, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay.

As previously reported, the 15-minute set medley in February showcased LL COOL J, Missy Elliott, Public Enemy, Rakim, Queen Latifah, Lil Wayne, Grandmaster Flash, Black Thought, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Busta Rhymes, and many more. Although viewers hailed it as the highlight of the award ceremony, they wished for a longer performance. The upcoming production promises to be more substantial, promising a fantastic celebration of 50 years of Hip-Hop.
