Cincinnati Music Festival got off to a hopping start last night with the 50th anniversary of hip-hop celebration at Andrew J. Brady Music Center.

Legends that included Rakim, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh and Big Daddy Kane took the stage, giving Cincinnati performances it will never forget.

The festivities continue at Paycor Stadium this weekend, with Al Green as the headliner on Friday and Snoop Dogg closing things out Saturday. But before then, here are the highlights from Thursday’s outstanding performances.
