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.
