Nas, Outkast Perform, Lollapalooza Day Two Recap
Outkast headlines and Nas runs through classics from his debut yet again.
With Day 2 in the books, Lollapalooza 2014 is more than halfway done. After the first day brought a headlining performance from Eminem (and an afternoon set from Iggy Azalea), the second day of the Chicago-based festival counted sets from Outkast, Nas, Rich Homie Quan, RATKING, and more.
New York City Hip Hop trio RATKING performed early in the afternoon and rapper Patrick Morales apparently injured himself with a microphone. Despite the mishap, the performance continued on with Morales sporting a bloodied forehead.
Rich Homie Quan reportedly arrived on stage nearly twenty minutes into a 45-minute set before delivering covers of YG’s “My Nigga” and Yo Gotti’s “I Know.”
Shortly after Quan’s set, Rock band Grouplove offered up a Beastie Boys’ cover song in the form of “Sabotage.”
Nas performed an early evening set as scheduled and again ran through much of his debut album as he continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The Queensbridge rapper stopped the show to pay homage to Michael Jackson directly before launching into “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” (which samples a MJ song itself).
Big Boi and Andre 3000 took to the Samsung Galaxy stage as the final performers of the night as the duo’s summer of music festival appearances continued. Wearing a jumpsuit that read “Across Cultures, Dark People Suffer Most. Why?” Andre 3000 performed songs like “Hey Ya!” and “She Lives In My Lap.” The pair also ran through hits like “B.O.B.,” “Gasoline Dreams,” “The Way You Move,” and more. During the set, the audience enjoyed a backdrop of fireworks.
