(Black PR Wire) INDIANAPOLIS, IN Summer is almost here, and it is time to celebrate. Nationally known Promoter Geno Shelton (#DJGGGENO) plans to observe some of the landmark events in June by formally acknowledging “Black Music Month” along with “Juneteenth” by paying homage to HipHop, all during Father’s Day Weekend.

Shelton has planned a mega concert featuring some of the music industry’s most recognizable names in HipHop Sunday, June 18, at Indiana Farmers Coliseum, 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46205. This “Hip Hop 50th Anniversary Concert” will unapologetically highlight the music that began in the streets of New York and singlehandedly shifted a culture, crossing music genres and impacting fashion, television, movies, and comedy.

The concert will also showcase the elements that make up the HipHop industry, including breakdancing, rhyming, beatboxing, and MCs hyping the crowd, forcing them to move with the melodic sounds or the syncopated beats of the streets. The scheduled lineup of iconic artists includes RAKIM, MC Lyte, Kool Moe Dee, Big Daddy Kane, Sugar Hill Gang, Monie Love, Rob Base, EPMD, and Kwame. This group of internationallyknown hiphop storytellers and lyricists will individually set the stage on fire so attendees can expect electrifying performances that will keep them on their feet no matter what age, race, or religion.

Special recognition will also be given to Indiana music artists who help shape the local hiphop community. MECAP Music, in association with @DJGGGENO, will host a music conference to kick off the weekend Saturday, June 17, from 2:00 pm 6:00 pm at Harper’s Bar & Grill, 4202 West 56th Street, Indianapolis, IN, 46254.
