The VIPP Report: Doug E. Fresh & Slick Rick in Pre-Derby concert

Jay-Z Performs At Madison Square Garden With Special Guests

NEW YORK – NOVEMBER 1: Special guest rappers Slick Rick (left) and Doug E. Fresh performs on the “Best of Both Worlds” tour, November 1, 2004 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The tour was originally a collaboration featuring Jay-Z and R. Kelly, but Kelly was removed from the tour after an incident on Friday, October 29, 2004. R. Kelly filed a 75 million USD lawsuit on November 2, 2004 against Jay-Z for breach of contract accusing his fellow recording artist of threatening behaviour and sabotaging the tour out of spite and jealousy.

We are just days away from the 142nd Run for the Roses and the sure bet tonight in entertainment is Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick.  The hip-hop legends will be a part of the Kentucky Derby Festival waterfront Jam.  The concert is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m.

This is “The Show” you don’t want to miss with the original human beatbox.  When Rick the Ruler takes the stage and the “Children’s Story” begins to the play the crowd will definitely sing along.

Ricky “Slick Rick” Martin Lloyd Walters  just announced his “Victory Tour” after he became an American citizen.  The English-born rapper took the oath during a ceremony in April after a .  Once he announced his tour he says “I’m celebrating a new beginning”.

Rick’s official DJ is Louisville’s own Dwight “DJ Kaos” Chatman.  It’s always good to see him on the stage with the hip-hop legends.

Did I mention the cost for the show? All you need is a 2016 Pegasus pins.  You can purchase in retail outlets throughout for the city for only $5.  If you purchase the pin at the gate it’s $7.

If you have a Kentucky Derby event you still have time to send it to me for my “Down the Stretch” blog  at The411@whas11.com. You can follow me on Twitter @Sherlenemediapr.
