A$AP Rocky pauses to watch the sight of a person in a wheelchair crowd surfing. Ordinarily, hip-hop shows don’t spawn mosh pits but then again, most don’t blare both House of Pain’s “Jump Around” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” over the speakers in succession. For A$AP, yes, it’s that easy, and lest anyone forgets, the initials to his name get shouted out by his trio of hype men with regular frequency. To his credit, A$AP doesn’t entirely coast. He establishes and maintains a crazed level of energy for a majority of the set and treats it all as a giant party. On Sunday night, with the prospect of heading back to work fans (well, the small percentage over 18, anyway) in the face, it’s the appropriate atmosphere and vibe. A$AP boasts a lyrical flow most peers would envy, and his entourage scatters like ants to the very front rows on the ground to pump up the crowd. There’s even room for a compelling avante R&B turn in the form of “L.$.D.” Self-promotional references, tributes to weed, descriptions of loose women and homages to money spill from the emcee’s mouth. So do shout-outs to Chief Keef and Chance the Rapper. Yet it’s local boy Vic Mensa who scores the guest spot for a duet on “U Mad,” putting the punctuation mark on a booming celebration of modern hip-hop culture that, in spite of positive messages prouncing unity, still include clicking gun-chamber sound effects. – [Chicago Tribune]

Threat of severe weather (thunderstorms, hail) caused Grant Park to be evacuated briefly during the final day of Lollapalooza 2015 (8/2) and also had the fest end 30 minutes early. (This happened at Pitchfork too this year, and at Lolla in 2012.) Otherwise, the show went on with sets from Florence + the Machine, A$AP Rocky, TV on the Radio, Albert Hammond Jr. (who started his day in the Toyota Tent for a Q&A with BrooklynVegan correspondent Billy Jones), Of Monsters and Men, Twin Peaks, Gogol Bordello, and many more.
