According to Central Park Summer Stage Twitter
@SummerStage: Set-times for tonight’s show in Central Park:
Doors: 6 pm
DJ: 7 pm
@IAM w/ special guest Rakim: 8 pm
7:30 got here. lines pretty serious. Sounds like DJ is warmin the crowd up.
Crowd seems verrry French, which makes sense since the main act IAM are a French hip hop group. Seems they have a song with g rap and Rakim. Maybe Kool Giancanno makes an appearance.
8:00 IAM just hit the stage. These guys have 4 emcees and 3 DJ’s pretty crazy.
8:55 Termanology and Statik Selektah just came out and term did a verse. It was brief, but he killed it.
9:10 the kid Daytona came out and legit murdered it. Didn’t seem like these hardcore IAM seemed to know this new track but he easily won them over
9:20 after leaving stage for a 5th time (they do alot of costume changes, real showmen) IAM re emerged with THE GOD Rakim Allah.
Rakim performed microphone fiend in full and then stayed while two of the emcees rocked over his classic instrumental.
