Legendary hip-hop group the JUICE CREW are set to reunite for the first time in more than a decade at an Atlanta, Georgia music festival later this month (Mar08). The New York rap pioneers will make history at the A3C Hip Hop Festival when Big Daddy Kane, Marley Marl, Biz Markie, MC Shan, Craig G and Roxanne Shante reform on stage on 21 March - almost 15 years since they last performed together. But Brian Knott, the festival founder, claims the reunion has been in the works for months. He says, "We've been working on this literally since November. It's incredible to think that artists like Pete Rock, Biggie and countless other Hip Hop figures have cited the Juice Crew as primary influences and they're going to reunite at the A3C this year." The Juice Crew will join a line-up including Little Brother, RE-UP Gang/Clipse, Jeru The Damaja, Akrobatik and Del Tha Funkyhomosapien.
