NEW YORK — With New York City’s Homecoming Week approaching, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday revealed the remaining lineups for the concerts set for each of the outer boroughs in August.

The mayor was joined by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Rocky Bucano, founder and president of the Universal Hip Hop Museum, for the announcement.

“The focus will be hip-hop, particularly New York City’s essential, historic contribution to hip-hop and what each borough has contributed,” de Blasio said.

Some of hip-hop’s forefathers and legends, along with big names from other genres, will hit stages across the city for the historic shows, which kick off in the Bronx, the genre’s birthplace.

De Blasio said proof of at least one vaccine dose will be needed for entrance into the shows.
