In Just 10 years, Rock the Bells has grown into hip-hop's answer to Coachella, complete with a two-day lineup and virtual performances from iconic rappers Ol' Dirty Bastard and Eazy E this weekend at Shoreline Amphitheatre.

Not unlike some of the most successful emcees to ever put 16 bars over a beat, the festival's story is littered with big risks, perfect timing and a little luck.

It starts on a hot summer day in San Bernardino in 2004. A few thousand frustrated Wu-Tang fans were on the brink of rioting after waiting hours for the group to take the stage for the first time in nearly 10 years. The Problem: Ol' Dirty Bastard, in the thrall of a cocaine habit that would take his life a few months later, wouldn't leave his hotel room to perform.

Somewhat miraculously considering his condition, ODB was coaxed to the stage with help from a stern phone call by Wu-Tang mastermind the RZA for what would be his last show with the group before his death.
