Ja Rule's ICONN Live App has announced that KRS-ONE will perform Boogie Down Productions' debut album Criminal Minded live on the streaming app and in-person at Sony Hall in New York City on June 20.

"Godfather of rap KRS-One is the next VIBES in the house," Ja Rule said. "You won’t want to miss this show killer right here at Sony Hall! I’m a big fan of his myself and I can’t wait for everyone to see one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history come to life.” 

The ICONN Live app which is currently available on Apple TV where previous VIBES concerts can be streamed. Previous VIBES concerts include Ja Rule's Pain Is Love, Raekwon's Only Built For Cuban Linx, Rakim's Paid In Full, Big Daddy Kane's Long Live The Kane, and the most recent concert, Musiq Soulchild's Aijuswanaseing.


In a recent exclusive interview with Rock The Bells, Ja Rule discussed his ICONN Live app and ICONN Media, the live streaming entertainment marketplace that he founded.

"It's a live streaming platform with an app and a network coming to the Apple TV store, Android TV and all Tivo's," he explained. "I saw a need for what I've currently built during the pandemic. I was looking at a lotta artists and we were doing virtual concerts and DJs were spinning virtually. I saw D-Nice doing his DJ shit and it gave people fulfillment and that good energy that we needed at that moment. The topic became 'How can we tip D-Nice?' — but we couldn't do that through Instagram, so he put his CashApp up there. But we gotta go through a third party for that. If there was a way to do that instantly he would have made a lotta fucking money right there!"

The live, in-person concert at Sony Hall in New York City will take place on Tuesday, June 20 at 9:00 p.m. EST and doors open at 7:00 p.m. EST General Admission tickets are $50 and VIP reserved seating is $125. To purchase tickets please visit Sony Hall or TicketWeb.
