Resorts World Casino New York City is hosting what it calls the “first of its kind hip-hop concert in Queens” this weekend to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the genre that has become one of the most successful of the rock era.

“Legends of Hip-Hop Vol. 1” will bring notable artists from the genre to the casino at 110-00 Rockaway Blvd. on Saturday, March 15 for a concert beginning at 9 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m.

The show will feature an all-star lineup of legendary talent such as Naughty By Nature, above, Queens-natives DJ Skribble, below left, and Black Sheep, Kurtis Blow, DJ Kool, DJ Marley Marl and special host Ray Dejon, below right.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 at the casino on the lower level or at rwnewyork.com. Tickets purchased the day of the concert will run $35.
