Is Soundset The Best Hip-Hop Festival Around? Yes And Here’s Why

B-Boys and B-Girls rejoice!

SHAKOPEE, Minnesota -- We love music festivals.

Coachella, Hangout, Lollapalooza and the like? They're all awesome. But which one is the most hip-hop? Well, as we found out in Shakopee, Minnesota this weekend, the rap festival crown belongs to Soundset.

And we're not the only ones who think so.

"This is the last hip-hop festival," Logic told MTV News on Sunday (May 24). "This is it. To be a part of this, it's really amazing."

We went to Minnesota's Canterbury Park for the eighth annual event Sunday to see just how Soundset's keeping hip-hop's elements - breakdancing, graffiti writing, rapping and DJing - alive. Here's a look at what we found.
