These eateries will bring a variety of their classic recipes exclusively to the festival, giving fans an intimate experience of Hip-Hop’s expansive and rich history with food.

Bun B’s Trill Burgers
Nas’s Sweet Chick
Mia X’s Team Whip Them Pots

The Trill Mealz Food Court brings fans a fully immersive experience which also includes local Queens-based restaurants and NYC favorites to enjoy LL COOL J’s personal love letter to Hip-Hop through the lens of music and food. This food court helps celebrate the anniversary of Hip-Hop in the city that launched a movement and highlights how these golden-era Hip-Hop artists have transitioned into the culinary world by bridging the gap between food, beverage, and culture. These eateries will share a variety of their classic recipes and explore Hip-Hop’s expansive and rich history with food.
“Food and Hip-Hop are both forms of entertainment and self expression,” said LL COOL J.
“Food has always been a theme within Hip-Hop and are uniquely connected. Hosting the Trill Mealz Food Court at the Rock The Bells Festival at Hip-Hop’s birthplace of New York City, allows us to really connect with the community and create a fully immersive way to experience Hip-Hop.”
“For the first time ever, I will be curating a hip-hop food court at Rock The Bells Festival. Something that has never happened anywhere in the face of the world,” says Bun B. “For me it’s the food now. I still make music. I still perform, but this is my passion and it still keeps me in the culture”
For every ticket sale, Rock The Bells will donate partial proceeds to the Universal Hip-Hop Museum in the Bronx whose mission is to celebrate and preserve the people, artifacts, and stories that echo from 1973 to the present.
