Chance the Rapper
Who: Twenty-year-old Chicagoan Chance the Rapper recorded his first mixtape, 10 Day, when he was on suspension from school; his second, Acid Rap, earned him features on records by everyone from Lil Wayne to Justin Bieber to Skrillex to James Blake.
Why You Can't Miss Him: If Outkast's Friday night headlining set is a reminder of where hip-hop was willing to go 15 years ago, Chance's Sunday performance will demonstrate where it's willing to go today. And while the younger artist might not have the on-stage experience of his forbears, he puts on a good enough show that, as he recently told Rolling Stone, he "might not ever drop a for-sale project" and "just make my money touring."
