Residents of the Minnesota area, please start blocking out your schedules Sunday, May 27th to make a trip to Shakopee. The locally based Rhymesayers Entertainment label will be hosting their fourth annual Soundset Festival with what’s shaping up to be the potentially best ever lineup in the event’s short history. Headlined by the likes of Atmosphere, Lupe Fiasco, Rae & Ghost, and Kendrick Lamar, it also features up and coming sensations for the Hip-Hop heads including Big K.R.I.T., Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Chuuwee. The three stage show will additionally feature cultural elements like a DJ tent, skateboarding rink, and live painting. And at half the price of a Rock the Bells ticket, with just as good of a lineup, the Soundset Festival will likely be something that fans will be buzzing about until it rolls around again next year.
Aside: Please join me in praying that some sort of a collaboration between Kendrick and K.R.I.T. will come out of this. Surely it’s possible right?
