Art of Cool Festival

  • Jill Scott: The three-time Grammy-winner first stepped into the spotlight with her platinum-selling debut, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. I, and has been winning hearts and weakening knees ever since, thanks to the soft and sultry vocals heard on “He Loves Me,” “I’m Not Afraid,” and “Golden.” But her talent isn’t limited to her voice. Scott’s also showcased her acting chops on HBO’s The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and the films Why Did I Get Married? and Baggage Claim.
  • Run D.M.C.: as a trio, Queens natives Joseph “Run” Simmons, Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, and the sadly deceased Jam Master Jay made all kinds of hip-hop history as the first rap act to top the charts and earn a Grammy nomination. While the group broke ground again and again in the ’80s with hip-hop versions of nursery rhymes and musical odes to tennis shoes, they’re perhaps best remembered for their take on Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way.” Recorded with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, the track became a mainstream pop hit, sent their album Raising Hell to the top of the R&B charts, and yielded the first rap video on MTV.
  • Whodini: The trio of Jalil Hutchins, John “Ecstasy” Fletcher, and Drew “Grandmaster Dee” Carter filled the early ’80s with memorable jams such as “Magic Wand” and “The Freaks Come Out at Night,” which they performed while escaping from straitjackets underwater.
  • Also Performing: Ari Lennox, Big Daddy Kane Feat. The Symphony, Marcus Anderson, and many more
