Good news for hip-hop fans: Tons of hip-hop artists are touring this summer.
Rock The Bells is bringing Nas, Damian Marley, The Roots, Common, Busta Rhymes, Big Boi, House of Pain, Reflection Eternal and many others to 11 U.S. cities in July and August.
Jay-Z and his excellent Roc Boys band are hosting at least 6 "intimate" shows in ampthitheaters.
Lil' Wayne, who spends much of his time in Miami, will embark on the "America's Most Wanted Music Festival" in late July, bringing along Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy and the excellent up-and-coming Canadian rapper Drake.
So what's the bad news?
None are visiting Miami. Or South Florida. Or Florida.
That's right, for whatever reason, Floridians won't be visited by any of these hip-hop artists this summer.
How do you feel about that?
