Kanye West, Nas Push It to the Limits at Austin Music Festival

Kanye West

Kanye West closed out Day 1 of the Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas, in grand fashion. He didn’t need any guests (Jay-Z and Coldplay’s Chris Martin were rumored surprises) to shine with his expansive repertoire of hits. The rapper, who will embark on the Watch the Throne tour with Jay-Z on October 29, suffered from technical issues and a hoarse throat, but still wowed festivalgoers during his gripping two-hour set.

Other acts taking the stage earlier in the day included Nas and Damian Marley, Big Boi, Santigold, and the fashion-forward Theophilus London.
