SOHH has learned Hot 97’s highly-anticipated one-night “Check The Rhyme” concert next month has been cancelled.With a star-studded line-up of guests including 50 Cent, T-Pain, Slick Rick, Ice Cube, LL Cool J and others, a rep for the NEw York based radio station spoke with SOHH to reveal the event’s cancellation.
“‘Check The Rhyme’ is cancelled,” the rep told SOHH. “It was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts with the artists.”
Claiming they were “not sure” or “at liberty to say” whether the concert would be re-scheduled, the rep promised all fans who purchased tickets would be taken care of.
“If they go to ticketmaster they will definitely be refunded.”
