(Photos & Video) Nas, Common, & Lauryn Hill Kick Off Rock The Bells Festival in Southern Cali

The 8th annual Rock the Bells Festival kicked off last night at then San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, Calif., and it was definitely a concert to remember. Nas brought out L.A. Laker Ron Artest for “Memory Lane” off Illmatic, then performed “Ghetto Dreams” with Common for the first time live, and Lauryn Hill rocked the stage just weeks after giving birth to her sixth child. Other performers included Erykah Badu, Mos Def and Talib Kweli, and Wu-Tang’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon. Hit the jump for photos and video!! @ItsLukieBaby
