    It’s a good thing to see Lupe, Kanye and Talib perform on the
    same stage together. Now see folks! That’s a concert worth goin’ to.

    It would be worth going if it wasn’t so hard to get there and there were more than those hip hop artists. the price of the tickets and concessions plus the hassle to get out to the fucking boon docks outweigh the presence of THREE hip hop artist.
