Sure Pitchfork has Raekwon, El-P, Dam-Funk, Big Boi which is promising but perhaps the most exciting hip hop lineup this summer in Chicago is the North Coast Music Festival. On a side note whats with the weak selection of hip hop talent at Lollapalooza? But I digress...

The North Coast Music Festival offers up an incredibly exciting hip hop lineup. Hip hip legends De La Soul and one of the best duos going in music right now with Nas and Damian Marley headline with other awesome acts to follow. The next thing in hip hop with Jay Electronica I am especially exited about seeing live.

The lineup also includes two of the most exciting people existing on the borderlines of hip hop with glitch experimental and Brainfeeder maestro Flying Lotus, and dub-stepper Benga. The bill is rounded out by the sure to be a soulful set by the AG favorite Mayer Hawthorne and the Country. Check out some tracks to get a taste of why we are looking forward to this festival.
