Set to take place on June 3 in Philadelphia, the day-long music festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary with headliners such as Solange, Pharrell performing with The Roots ("Pharrell has a gazillion hits, but I'm a bigger fan of his deep album cuts -- this is one of my favorite songs of his, the beat is insane," Black Thought says of "Show You How To Hustle"), and Lil Wayne (Black Thought says Wayne's track "BM J.R." is "when Lil Wayne earned my respect, and when I knew Lil Wayne was top tier. I'm big on lyricism").
Other acts include James Vincent McMorrow, Noname, PnB Rock ("Since we're both from Philly, this song really hit home. No pun intended. I really like what he's doing with his music," says Black Thought) and more.
