Hip-hop was born in the Bronx, years later some said that the West Coast was the “best coast”, and others could argue that the Dirty South made the most impressive mark on hip-hop in the 2000’s.
Like they did last year, Rhymesayers will be throwing the biggest hip-hop party the North Star state has ever seen–Soundset ’09.
Taking place on Sunday, May 24 (Canterbury Park, Shakopee, MN), Soundset ’09 just announced their list of performers, which includes the original line-up of Pharcyde (nice!), a rare live performance from MF Doom, Brother Ali, Freeway joining forces with Seattle-based producer Jake One, Sage Francis, Def Jux’s El-P with Mr. Dibbs and TMQ, P.O.S. (the artist behind my favorite hip-hop album of the year thus far), Aceyalone, and of course, Rhymesayers’ own Atmosphere.
Is it safe to say that this will be the best live show that sweeps through the city of Shakopee this year?
