Passing the Crown: Celebrating the Queens of Hip-Hop

July 7 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


A new commission by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

The heartbeat of Hip-Hop pulses with the stories and sounds of its Queens. Join us for an electrifying homage to the women who shaped the culture from its very core. From the pioneering rhymes of Sha-Rock to the groundbreaking beats of Missy Elliott, experience the unstoppable force of female MCs, DJs, dancers and orchestra! Dive into a night alive with rhythm and reverence as we celebrate the music of legends like Queen Latifah and Ms. Lauryn Hill, underscored by newly imagined cinematic orchestration.

Conceived and produced by an all-woman team including Juliette Jones, Randi “Rascal” Freitas, Monique Brooks Roberts, DJ Reborn, and hosted by MC Toni Blackman, this event is more than just a concert—it’s a declaration of solidarity and celebration. Join us as we honor the past, embrace the present, and ignite the future of Hip-Hop.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of history. Come, celebrate, and witness the coronation of Hip-Hop royalty!
