Day one of Rock the Bells kicked off on Saturday at San Bernadino’s San Manuel Amphitheater with a flashback to a hip-hop legend in Eazy E, who appeared for a virtual performance alongside his protégés Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Day two on Sunday night, another resurrection was witnessed by hardcore rap fans as Wu-Tang Clan honored the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
Appearing in hologram form alongside his son Young Dirty Bastard, the two ran through a medley of “Shame on a Ni**a” and “Shimmy Shimmy Ya.” In an interview with AllHipHop, the man behind bringing both fallen rap legends to life, Chris “Broadway” Romero (co-founder of ThisIs50.com) spoke on the career highlight moment.
“It was amazing. The best moment of my career thus far. To create an emotional reaction with the family was my goal; the crowd going crazy and singing along was the icing on the cake. I saw this moment a decade ago and there were moments yesterday where I couldn’t believe what was happening around me.”
