Another successful Governors Ball went down in NYC over the weekend with headlong performances from the likes of Drake, a Rae Sremmurd member having a horrendous accident and fans having a great time. Samsung made its presence felt all weekend and copped the festivities off with an exclusive party on Sunday night (June 7).
This past weekend, Drake had himself an incredible Governor’s Ball but Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jimmy did not. While unlocking the swag during his set, the wild boy slipped on a speaker, destroying his knee this side of Kyrie Irving and had to have emergency surgery.
Drake was the headliner for Friday night (June 5) of Governors Ball 2015 and he killed the stage. The capacity crowd hung on to every word and lyric from Drizzy as he ran through his catalog of hits.
Drake is going to be busy this year. In addition to headlining Coachella, the Toronto rapper will be headlining Governors Ball 2015 in New York City.
Upon further review, it appears that Hip-Hop Wired’s André 3000 sighting at the 2014 Governors Ball Music Festival was just one of many. Instagram users actually flooded the social media site with photos of the often reclusive MC in an array of scenarios.
Governors Ball almost feels like a dream less than a day following its final curtain call. The memorable moments were ample and spanned throughout multiple music genres, but for Hip-Hop fans, the zenith point occurred late Friday night (June 6) when Outkast stepped foot onstage.
An energetic set by Childish Gambino was one of the highlights of the 2014 Governors Ball Festival. Riddled with live renditions of fan-favorite songs from his Camp and Because The Internet albums and a cameo from André 3000 in the photo pit, the performance also included a guest appearance from Chance The Rapper, who spit his unreleased […]
André 3000, one half of the eclectic duo Outkast, was spotted simply being a fan at the 2014 Governors Ball Festival in New York City less than 24 hours after demolishing the the main stage on Friday night (June 6). And Hip-Hop Wired got word that his solo album is in the works.
The public shared a range of emotions after news of the forthcoming Outkast reunion shows were announced. However, since every action has an equal and opposite reaction, even fans’ exclamations of joy and jubilation were naturally met with a bit of hate from detractors.
This latest Outkast announcement may cause fans to hyperventilate. Following news that the funky duo are headlining both Coachella in California and Governor’s Ball in New York City, we get word that the pair are performing at 40 festival dates in 2014.
People went ballistic when official word got out that Outkast is headlining Coachella 2014. But that’s just the beginning, as the funky duo will also headline Governor’s Ball in New York City this summer.
Kanye West may have stole the show at Governors Ball Sunday night, but he wasn’t the only superstar to represent Hip-Hop at the annual festival. A day prior (June 8), rising star Kendrick Lamar and legendary Queensbridge native Nas took the stage at the jam packed Randall’s Island venue.
Fans didn’t need to be in NYC to witness the wave Yeezus season made during the last night of the Governor’s Ball festival. Kanye West took the stage in typical fashion (a day after his birthday, by the way), and came bearing audible gifts from his ambiguous, but highly anticipated sixth studio album.
