In the ’90s, Lollapalooza began its legacy by bringing together an army of chart-topping musicians of all genres like Rock, Pop, EDM and Country. When the festival began in 1991, Ice-T served as the first and only hip-hop artist. Over the past several decades, the line-up for the weekend-long festival has grown significantly with plenty of legendary MC’s who have rocked the stage. In honor of the festival’s 15th active year, get a brief history of hip-hop at Lollapalooza and the official live stream after the jump!
