Besides Eminem on Friday, Saturday was heavy on hip-hop heavyweights. First up was Nas, who dedicated the first half of his set to his 1994 debut album "Illmatic" from start to finish. Unlike Eminem, and other EDM-based acts this weekend, Nas commandeered the massive stage on his own, accompanied by only a DJ. "All I need is one mic, two turntables and you," he said. True enough, those songs remain poignant, especially the funk saga "N.Y. State of Mind," the jazz-fused street scenes of "It Ain't Hard to Tell" and "One Love," a universal shout-out to incarcerated friends. The personal imagery in those songs, combined with his solitary presence onstage, summoned the sense of a testimonial before God, his peers, a lover, his family -- It was all packed in there ready for unpacking. - [Chicago Sun Times]
Day Two at Lollapalooza 2014 seemed mostly smooth sailing, seeing performances by hip hop icons Outkast and Nas, indie rock from Parquet Courts and Spoon, not to mention Kate Nash, Vic Mensa, Phosphorescent, Duke Dumont and lots more. Pictures from Saturday (8/2) are in this post.

Lollapalooza Day Three is just getting underway in Chicago's Grant Park, with performances today by Darkside, Chromeo, The Avett Brothers and more. They are also streaming some of the performances live today starting at 3 PM EST. If you're there, be sure to stop by the Toyota Soundwave Tent where BrooklynVegan will be hosting live performances, artist Q&As and more.

white people look, act, dance and sing in an extremely corny manner. how did ya'll make it out of the caves again?

With so much demands it is good to be open. Training is the best way to do it.

It's mind blowing when considering how so many of these lack-luster, shitty acts are thrown record deals. Remember when an album was great from start to finish? A real rarity in these disposable times.
