"Rock The Bells represents, respects and recognizes the very best and brightest talent who create social, political and conscious hip-hop music. We are attempting to make a statement as well as history. I have been blessed to be a part of a lot of big shows, but this year’s festivals aren’t just the biggest or best shows in hip-hop, they are some of the most important musical experiences overall," states Chang Weisberg from Guerilla Union. "It has never been more critical to the success of quality music. The live hip-hop experience is so special because there are just so few happening. I can’t remember the last time this many quality emcees and musicians have ever been gathered to showcase their talents. Mass media has a blurred perception of what’s popular. Rock The Bells exists to be the ultimate artist support platform for the genre. We will prove that over 150,000 fans can spark a movement and a shift in the music and culture of America. The summer of 2007 will be remembered as the year that quality hip-hop came back." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
