Dave Chappelle Will Host Common's Star-Lined AAHH! Fest In Chicago feat. Jay Electronica, De La Soul, Lupe Fiasco + More
Dave Chappelle continues the comeback of the century (certain neo-soul luminaries might wanna take head) as he’s confirmed to host Common‘s upcoming AAHH! Fest in Chicago September 20th-21st. The festival is the fruit of a collaborative effort between Common’s own Common Ground Foundation and Kanye‘s Rhymefest-operated Donda’s House Inc, seeking to build infrastructure and advocate for government and private funded youth-oriented job training programs in the embattled Mid-Western city.
Up until now, we’ve practically been left in the dark on what that promised all-star line-up would look like, but you may now rest assured that they weren’t messing around. The Festival will feature performances from Jay Electronica, De La Soul, Lupe Fiasco, MC Lyte, Lil Herb and the festival’s orchestrator and hometown here himself. There’s also a special guest on the bill, which I’d half-confidently say is either the self-anointed Yeezus or Rhymefest (who would probably be a a pretty dope sight, if I may say so.) I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see, but you don’t have to wait much longer to square away your entry. Just hit the link below and get yourself set up to experience a whole new kind of Chappelle-lead block party.
