3 Rap Superstars Will All Be At One Festival This Weekend

Music |  

Before you get all worked up, I think the top five rappers in the world right now (in no particular order) are Kanye West, J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake. That’s just my opinion. But right now, we’re only talking about the homerun-hitting trio of J. Cole, Chance The Rapper, and Kanye West, who will all be playing at ONE place this weekend. Where are these three rap giants playing? The Meadows Festival in Queens, New York.

At the usual music festival, you’ll probably see one rap act headline one night, an EDM act another, and then maybe a rock band for the third. And while the Meadows will be boasting plenty of diversity, it knows what it is: the Meadows is a New York City festival, and New Yorkers love their rap music. So having some of the unquestioned best in the game headlining your inaugural festival was a no-brainer for the people behind The Meadows.

With J. Cole closing out Saturday, Chance playing Sunday evening, and Kanye closing up shop on Sunday night, music fans from all over will have a chance to see three of the greatest rap minds in the game, all at one venue. Even though J. Cole famously went platinum with no features, it wouldn’t surprise me if he brought out a surprise guest. Queens is Cole’s second home, so you know he’s trying to bring the hype. And being that Chance and Kanye have been collaborating all year, odds are they’ll end up performing together too. If you’re a rap fan like me, The Meadows is shaping up to be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The trio of rappers performing at The Meadows is even more amazing when you consider that J. Cole wasn’t even added until last minute. According to The Meadows’ website, Cole was originally added to replace The Weeknd, due to a scheduling conflict. However, The Weeknd solved his conflict, was re-added to The Meadows line up, and now fans get to enjoy them both!

It goes without saying, it’s going to be a hell of a weekend in Queens.
