The Breaks festival in pics (Wu-Tang, Vic Mensa, Yasiin Bey, Talib Kweli, more)
Chicago's second-annual The Breaks festival hit the city's Toyota Park last Saturday (9/8), which featured an exciting lineup of many acts across the hip hop spectrum. Headlining the festival was Wu-Tang Clan, whose entire membership was in attendance, resulting in an energetic, lively set. Other performers at the fest were Vic Mensa with surprise guests Crucial Conflict, Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli (who performed separately rather than as a duo), Freddie Gibbs, Curren$y, Twista, Alex Wiley, Jelly Roll & Struggle, Hurt Everybody, King Lil G, Tom Macdonald, Too Stupid to Die, Ready To Live, and Taking Hits Constantly. You can view photos in the gallery above, and watch footage of Wu-Tang Clan and Yasiin Bey's sets below.
