Jhene Aiko and Ashanti To Perform at Def Jam’s 30 Year Anniversary Concert

Def Jam will celebrate thirty years with a massive concert event tonight.

Taking the stage to help with the celebration are R&B recording artists Jhene Aiko, Jeremih and Ashanti.

Slated to take place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the 30 year anniversary concert will also feature appearances and performances from Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, DMX, Fabolous, Foxy Brown, Onyx, Method Man, Redman, Ja Rule, Warren G, and EPMD.

"As the birthplace of hip-hop, there is no better place to celebrate such a cultural touchstone than in New York City itself," Def Jam CEO Steve Bartels shared in a statement.

"The event, which will encompass all 30 years of Def Jam’s influence on hip-hop music and culture, will take audiences through the label’s history, from humble beginnings to what is to come in the future. The show will feature artists who are true masters of ceremony; those who evolved from crowd movers to wordsmith lyricists, and helped transform the face of a culture and give birth to hip-hop’s golden age," organizers report. "It will be the only night audiences can see a rare breed of pioneers across generations who have influenced millions, and continue to change the dynamics of hip-hop to this day. The event is promoted and presented by Masters of Ceremony."

Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster by visiting www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center.
