LL Cool J, Common, Lupe Fiasco and Rick Ross are working on a special performance for The Grammys Nomination Concert.
The stars will join the Furious Five members Melle Mel and Scorpio for a rendition of The Message.
Their performance of the 1982 Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five hit will take place during a live show on Wednesday.
The one-hour show will reveal the nominations for the 54th annual Grammy Awards which will take place on February 12 2012.
LL Cool J has already signed up to host the event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Usher, Sugarland and Ludacris have been announced as performers. Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry will be on hand to present awards to some of the lucky winners.
It was recently announced that The Message would be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, 30 years after the track was recorded.
The track's hook "It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from goin' under" is well known across the world of hip-hop. The single has been sampled by artists such as Ice Cube on his 1993 hit Check Yo Self and P. Diddy who used it in Can't Nobody Hold Me Down in 1997.
The Grammy Nominations Concert Live - Countdown to Music's Biggest Night will air on November 30 on CBS.
