Despite last year’s weather-related catastrophes, Soundset, the annual showcase of RhymeSayers’ finest gems, brought up to 30,000 attendees to Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN. With a supporting cast that included Brother Ali, P.O.S., ASAP Ferg, and ScHoolboy Q, this year’s line up couldn’t be overlooked. Prof rescued the day when asked to open for Atmosphere, while Snoop Lion and Juicy J performed Three Six Mafia classics, making up for the missed nostalgia of Busta Rhymes’ plane malfunctions. Overall, hardly a hip-hop loving soul in the Upper Midwest should have missed this event. Now, Consequence of Sound‘s contributing photographer Joe Runge returns with some key snapshots.
