The North Coast Music Festival was a huge event in Chicago. On the third and last day of the festival, we got up close and personal with Flying Lotus.  Lotus had an intense (almost magical) connection with the crowd that came out to see his performance.  Hands down, Flying Lotus is a cool guy.

Lupe Fiasco was the last act on the Groupon Stage at the North Coast Music Festival.  Before we go on, there’s nothing like experiencing  a Lupe Fiasco concert set live.  Fiasco is great at putting on a show so good you could slap your mother.  The highlight of his set was  his performance of  “Go To Sleep” live for the first time.

Further on in the set, he performed “Dumb It Down” and several other smashing hits from his last release The Cool.  Overall, we were feeling his dashiki infused t-shirt with the face of Malcolm X printed on the front.  The shirt reminds of his Rick Ross B.M.F. (Freestyle) where he says, ” I think I’m Malcolm X, Martin Luther, add a King, add a Jr.”  Chicago loves you Lupe.  No matter what anybody says keep doing you!

Labour Day weekend was really crazy in Union Park in Chicago, IL.  On September 4, 2010, the North Coast Music Festival (Being the last music festival of the Summer) shook Chicago up!  Jay Electronica performed and rocked the stage tremendously!  This was a treat to all music lovers and hip-hop heads to witness the hip-hop heavyweight live in action.  Jay Electronica expressed his love for Chicago, stating that at one time he lived in Chicago.  The sea of people recited every rhyme word for word with excitement.  The Goodie Bag was on-hand to capture this sacred moment with Jay Electronica during his performance of Ghost Of Christopher Wallace” and “Exhibit A Transformations”.

Jay Electronica performed to the fullest extent, bringing the festival to a high climax.  As the show went on, Jay Electronica sparked a freestyle session.  He grabbed a young emcee from the crowd to kick a couple of rhymes.  The kid did some justice with several metaphorical punches.  In conclusion, it was an iconic performance being the fact that Black Milk was on stage with Jay Electronica the entire time.  Jay Electronica dubbed Black Milk the future of hip-hop at this show.  Incredible!
