I have no problem with terrible bands playing Bonnaroo if I think they will draw a large crowd. This opens up tents for other acts for me to enjoy. Eminem and Wayne would I'm sure demand headliner status and not draw much crowd forcing me to watch good shows from outside the tents. This I do not like.

I think Lil Wayne and Drake makes more sense, since they are potentially working together when Wayne is out of prison.
Hahahahahahahaha With Big Boi out there killing it at shows, the slim chances of Drake or Lil Wayne playing Bonnaroo are diminishing quickly.
Why don't you add a POLL to this thread PMO?
Are they only allowed to book one rap artist? I would love to see Outkast myself, but why does that diminish the chances of anyone else? There was quite a bit this last year (Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, B.o.B, Jay Electronica, Wale, Posner), and if there isn't a rap/hip hop headliner, why not?
And thank you NoD, I think Drake makes some sense.
Well considering the hip hop artist they have brought in at the tent level in recent years have consisted of mostly underground and old schoolers, with a little Kid Cudi or Lupe Fiasco in there. I don't see them jumping out on a limb and booking another major hip artist for What Stage this year. Even if Drake were to play he would be in a tent or at the most which stage. Unfortunately, I believe Big Boi or Outkast would end up in Public Enemy type spot. (Even though, I think they would be great on the what stage as Outkast.) So having Big Boi would diminish the chances of Em,Wayne, Or Drake.
I mean did you hear the webcast last night? He would definitely kill at Roo.
Personally, I feel that arguing over the internet is a waste of time, and stupid as hell. I respect your opinions as much as anyone else. I have stated what I wish for 2011, and I'm not frittated. I know the chances of either Wayne or Em being at Roo, are incredibly slim. So in hopes of achieving some good faith with the people on this board, because I do enjoy this board, especially from Jan - June. I have changed to name of the thread. Instead of it being all about me wanting Em and Wayne at Roo, I've turned it more into the type of thread it has become. If you ignore about 65% percent of the post where I am being told I'm stupid because I enjoy certain artists. Not only would I love for either Wayne or Em to make an appearance, but would be just as excited to hear most of the names mentioned instead of them.

He's like you made an Ã¼ber troll by taking the worst parts of me (the utter disregard for other people's opinions), Phi (cluttering up threads with memes and adding nothing to a discussion) and Jess (an apparent belief that everyone else is the problem and/or arrogance without self awareness).
PMO, I apologize if I've been a weenie. I don't think you're stupid, I just think Lil Wayne is, and I feel very strongly about it. I don't see or hear a thread of talent in him, and to be honest his success just pisses me off. Also, I enjoy arguing on the internets. It makes things more interesting.
That being said, as following the new theme of the thread: -Wu Tang Clan -Atmosphere -Murs -The Grouch -Immortal Technique -Deltron/ Del tha funky homosapien -cage -Jedi Mind Tricks -KRS One -Dr. Dre -EMINEM (Whoa we agree on something)
Outkast N.W.A (or just Dr Dre or Dr Dre/Eminem) Method Man and Redman (They would be an unbelievable late night) Wu Tang Talib Kweli or Blackstar w/ mos def The Roots Blackalicious Cypress Hill De La Soul Q Tip/ Tribe Rage Against the Machine Lauryn Hill/Fugee's
