Coda: Rock the Bells' rough afternoon; double-dose of Dirty Projectors; local hip-hop mixtape overload

We began the week recovering a looooong day with many delays at the hip-hop mega-festival Rock the Bells. A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang Clan were great; Lauryn Hill and Snoop Dogg barely even bothered to show up. A whopping four local MCs released mixtapes on Tuesday. Dave Longstreth of Dirty Projectors had so much interesting stuff to say that we had to split his interview into two parts. We debated who is missing from the FreeFest lineup. We know that Die Antwoord will be missing and T.I. may very well be. And Lady Gaga likes hats. See you (briefly) on Monday!
