CRITIC’S PICK: If you somehow make it to the end of August without channeling your inner hip-hop oldhead, State Farm Arena has scheduled a concert that will most certainly pull it out of you. A little over a week after the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, LL Cool J will be teaming up with The Roots, DJ Z-Trip, and DJ Jazzy Jeff for an epic Atlanta stop during their ongoing The Force Tour. The tour promises a “one of a kind experience with special guests in select cities,” and for the Atlanta tour date, that means an incredibly special performance from the God MC himself, Rakim, shortly after the 35-year anniversary of his and Eric B.’s sophomore record Follow the Leader. Salt-N-Pepa and De La Soul will also be performing, so if you’re down to relive hip-hop’s golden age, get your tickets while you still can. - Joshua Robinson
