Legends of Hip Hop

It has been a sad few months in music, with the passing of some great contributors to hip-hop, R&B and more. But it has given us a chance to celebrate these artists. The "Legends of Hip Hop" tour will continue the celebrations, paying tribute to rapper Heavy D. Performers include MC Lyte, right, Rakim, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, Da Brat and DJ Cut Creator. Why go: For some of the best in '80s and '90s hip-hop and to party for one of hip-hop's finest, Heavy D. Reconsider: Rakim without Eric B.? Cut Creator without LL Cool J? Details: 8 p.m. Saturday at Arie Crown Theater, McCormick Place, 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive; $49.50-$69.50; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
