Scottrade Center played host to four legendary hip-hop acts on Saturday when the Kings of the Mic tour came through St Louis.

De La Soul opened the evening and brought its calm, cool and collected style to the front of the stage. Taking it back all the way to the days of "3 Feet High and Rising," De La Soul let it be known that since the pioneer days of hip hop, they've been doing work and are still going strong.

Public Enemy followed suit and brought out its militant style from the jump. With an attitude and swagger that commands respect, Chuck D, Flava Flav, and the entire Public Enemy crew came out swinging hard.

After Public Enemy stepped off stage, the legendary OG, Ice Cube, took the mic and blew the roof off of the building. The crowd's response indicated that Cube was the highlight for the night, and he did not disappoint. With a stellar sound coming through the speakers, Ice Cube spit rhymes, flexed his muscle and dropped knowledge the entire set through.

LL Cool J capped off the night and countered Ice Cube with an East-Coast style, featuring slick wordplay and fresh performance. No stranger to the big stage, LL was fluid and strutted side to side to work the crowd.
