Hangout Music Festival Continues With The Roots And Kendrick Lamar

by Maurice Bobb

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis kicked off the hip-hop portion of the 2013 Hangout Music Festival Friday (May 17) with a bang and it was all “Same Love” with the capacity crowd in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

The Seattle-based duo crowd-surfed and kept the energy on tilt throughout their set, which included “Ten Thousand Hours,” “Crew Cuts,” “Can’t Hold Us” and, of course “Thrift Shop,” the song that started pair’s supersonic orbit into superstardom.

Next up on the rap bill is MTV’s Hottest MC, Kendrick Lamar, The Roots and recent inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Public Enemy. MTV will continue its on-the-ground coverage of the Alabama festival all weekend with behind the scenes looks, news, interviews, updates and live streaming performances.
