Hip-Hop Unity Festival Downsized

The Hip-Hop Unity Festival scheduled for Dec. 4 in Los Angeles has been moved from the L.A. Coliseum to the L.A. Sports Arena, a spokesperson for concert promoters Edgewater Entertainment confirmed Wednesday. The event, which is slated to feature such rappers as DMX, Kurupt, Warren G, Slick Rick and Xzibit, originally was scheduled to take place Sept. 26 but has now changed venues to a smaller, indoor venue due to slow ticket sales and concerns about the weather.
