Rock the Bells at Merriweather Post Pavilion

A venerable list of hip-hop greats and up-and-comers rolled through the DC area on Sunday afternoon, and yours truly was lucky enough to be there con camera all day long. Nas, Busta Rhymes, The Roots, Big Boi (you know him from OutKast), Common -- they all rocked the main stage. RZA, Tech N9ne, K'naan, Mickey Factz and DC's own Tabi Bonney -- they did their thing both on the main and Paid Dues stages.

Those and many others, including KRS-One emceeing -- and freestyling -- throughout the day made Sunday's Rock the Bells visit to our Nation's capital a very memorable one. Below are a selection of my favorite shots, and many others can still be found on Flickr.

The show was shot for DCist and you can read the brief review here.
