2012 Rock the Bells Presents Nas and Missy Elliott


Missy Elliott


This year's line-up will include a special performance from femcee Elliott who will make this a comeback performance since announcing her autoimmune disease.

The 2012 line-up of Rock the Bells has been announced on Tuesday, May 15 during a unique press conference made by rapper Supernatural. In the list which he rapped are Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, J. Cole, Mac Miller, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

The annual festival will feature a special performance from veteran act Missy Elliott who announced her battle against Graves' disease last year and whose latest album is seven years in the making. She would be joined by producer Timbaland in the performance, Billboard reported.

Lupe Fiasco's name may be on the festival's flyer but the rapper tweeted on Wednesday morning that he is not going to be there. "Not doing Rock The Bellz...thats a typo fam and friends...," he wrote. Other acts expected to join the concert series are Salt-N-Pepa, Dipset and Black Hippy.

This year's event would be held on August 18-19 in San Bernardino, Calif., August 25-26 in Mountain View, Calif., and September 1-2 in Holmdel, N.J. To anticipate the criticism last year when both Nas and Mobb Deep performed simultaneously on two different stages, Guerilla Union's Chang Weisberg said, "We tried to deliver three stages, but it didn't work out. So the correction? Two stages, two days, one event."

Supernatural will host the event with RZA. Tickets will begin selling this Friday, May 18.
