Hip-hop stars will perform before and after the Red Bulls’ game in Harrison, Aug. 26.

The entertainment at the Red Bulls’ Major League Soccer game against Inter Miami on Aug. 26, at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, will include a 50th-anniversary-of-hip-hop celebration featuring Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run-DMC, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee of Naughty by Nature, DJ Scratch (who has worked with EPMD, Busta Rhymes, Jay-Z and many others) and DJ Skribble.

The game is at 7:30 p.m. All the artists will perform at the CrossBar at Red Bull Arena beginning at 5:30 p.m. (game tickets are required for entry), and then DJ Skribble, DJ Scratch, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee will perform inside the arena, after the game, leading into a fireworks show.

“Soccer has been around in the streets for a very long time,” said DMC, in a press release. “Just like beats, rhymes and park jams!”

“It’s an honor to fuse Soccer & Hip-Hop in this creative way,” said DJ Scratch in the press release. “I hope this will turn into a beautiful and fruitful relationship.”

By the way, the great Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi will be making his first appearance at Red Bull Arena as a member of Inter Miami at this game; he joined the team in July.
