• Headlining Day Three is Detroit King and beyond: Rap God, Eminem. Back in 1996, Slim Shady was selling original copies of his debut studio album, ‘Infinite’, out of his trunk in Detroit: ever since, he has never held back from dishin’ raw lyrical attacks that speak of every walk of life from political figures, public figures, reality TV stars, artists, actors, singers, family and musical acts. Carving out nouns and verbs and mixing up words from his manic psyche is what has morphed Em into a living legend that cannot be contained. Em’s seamless orchestration of intricacy and brilliance when he is stitching together his rhymes is unexampled and if he does make you an example, get ready to get verbally trampled.
• Taking over the game with the co-sign from Oprah and more, Cardi B is hot, fresh off the drop of her debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy’, which has influenced jaws enthusiastically dropping to the floor. Receiving gold status within minutes of its release, ‘Invasion of Privacy’ is set to be one of the hottest debut albums of the decade, standing tall as a true nitty-gritty lyrical showcase of a human being who came up from the dirt. Living her best life, we’re ready for what Cardi B has in store for her army of passionate fans in the motherland of love and hella sand.
• Maynard James Keenan is a precious maniac that performs tricks in a shadowy corner, leaving concertgoers spellbound by A Perfect Circle’s enigmatic ringleader. On the brink of the release of their fourth studio album, ‘Eat The Elephant’, the rockers music stands the test of time and will serve Coachella up with subliminal epiphanies full of unvarnished truth and dignity.
