Critic's Pick

Virgin Fest

August 07, 2008

Kanye West

ESSENTIALS: A Chicago rapper with limited mike skills, West was underdog producer before becoming The Rap Diva. He made beats for Jay-Z and other hip-hop stars before releasing three multiplatinum albums of his own.

WHAT TO EXPECT : West is the centerpiece of his over-the-top production, complete with glow-in-the-dark backdrops, whose ambition strives to match the size of his ego. No word on whether he'll have that production-heavy set at the festival.

WHEN AND WHERE: South Stage, 8:30 p.m.-10 p.m. Sunday
