Hot 97 has taken to social media to unveil details about its upcoming 50 Years of hip-hop concert taking place at Madison Square Garden on Friday, September 15.

According to the radio station’s announcement, Wu-Tang Clan is headlining, alongside performances by Mary J. Blige, EPMD, Tyrese and Sean Paul. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey and Maxwell are mentioned as special guests, while the show will be curated by Funk Flex. Carey, Maxwell and Tyrse will also serve as hosts.

“Presale Tickets Available At Ticketmaster & Use The Presale Code: ‘Thebigshow50,’” Hot 97 stated in its caption.

Hot 97 isn’t the only platform celebrating 50 years of hip-hop this year. In May, Apple Music launched Hip-Hop DNA, which is a new audio series featuring a variety of special and exclusive content.

“The program’s guiding principle is that all artists — no matter the era or discipline — carry with them the music and practices of their influences and, whether they’re aware of it or not, of their influences’ influences. The audio series is hosted by Ebro Darden, Apple Music’s global editorial head of hip-hop and R&B, and explores this chain of influence through four distinct lenses.”

Stay tuned for more news and updates relating to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop.
