Despite the fact that there are three (count 'em, 3!) hip hop acts - whaddup Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, and Odd Future - in a predominantly indie rock roster, Coachella has come a long way. Last year there was only one: the king of hip hop himself, Jay-Z. Slowly but surely hip hop is infiltrating into the Coachella community. How dope would it be to have an ALL hip hop lineup?
Here's the perfect Coachella lineup for all the hip hoppers - that we're renaming YO! CHELLA, yo - and we're even bringing some dope artists back from the dead. Yes, THE DEAD.
What Goes Down At YO! CHELLA:
Notorious B.I.G. closes the first night with his hit, "Going Back To Cali." That hit resonating in the desert full of hyped hip hoppers? Non-stop party in the desert!
And what's Biggie Smalls without his homie Puffy? 4 words: Mo' Money, Mo' Problems.
Salt-N-Pepa hold it down for the ladies on Day #2 of YO! CHELLA.
Females, males, dogs, cats... everyone will be pushin' it real good and shakin' it like no other by the time the second night closes out.
Tupac closes the last night of YO! CHELLA with his anthem "California Love"
With Dr. Dre on deck that same night, Tupac and Dr. Dre CRUSH the other nights, making everyone wish that this California lovin' party can last longer than just a weekend.
And if all that doesn't convince you to attend YO! CHELLA...
