We're knee-deep into festival season but there's one line-up that pretty much blows the others out the water—Summertime in the LBC.

Check out this line up: Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and The Game as headliners, with Ashanti and Ja Rule on the bill too, as well as The Isley Brothers, Method Man and RedmanE-40 and Too Short, Warren G and The Dove Shack, DJ Quik, Suga Free, The Dramatics, The Manhattans, Evidence, Mack 10, Tha Dogg Pound, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes (who Snoop loves), Midnight Star and more.

Basically, if you're in Cali this is the place to be, especially if you dig classic hip-hop and R&B. (If you've never seen the Isley Brothers live, you're doing yourself a serious disservice).

Beyond the festival, Ice Cube is definitely going to be busy this summer. Last week, Mike Epps posted a picture the two them on the set Last Friday, which Epps hinted might drop this summer.

As for Snoop, he's steadily expanding his resume. This spring he took it a step further, dropping his first gospel album, Bible Love, which hit #1 on the charts. The other vets on the bill are staying busy as well. E-40 just dropped a new record with his cousin, veteran Bay Area rapper, B-Legit, aptly titled Connected and Respected. Too Short also returned to the scene earlier this week with a sexy video, "Balance." 

Basically, as aforementioned, Summertime In The LBC is the place to be this summer. The festival takes place on July 7 at The Queen Mary. You can purchase tickets here.
