If more names than Nas, Atmosphere and Wiz don’t jump out at you from that schedule, check out our picks for seven new-ish acts to be excited about at the fest. As for Nas, we caught his “Illmatic” performance at the South by Southwest Music Conference two years ago and had a cool moment-in-time interview with him in 2008. We'd take him over Snoop Dogg as the Soundset veteran act any day.
