"If we keep outdoing ourselves, who am I going to be playing after next year? Kanye?" was what Atmosphere rapper Slug said about last year's impressive Soundset lineup. Well, Soundset 2013 didn't get Mr. West, but it did land the G-funk legend Snoop Dogg. (Although, isn't he going by Snoop Lion these days?) Anyhow, from the looks of the flyer, the Dr. Dre protege born Calvin Cordozar Broadus is opening for Atmosphere at the sixth running of the Rhymesayers hip-hop festival at Canterbury Park on Sunday, May 26.

The ever-evolving event's big names also include Mac Miller, Tech N9ne, Busta Rhymes, Brother Ali, Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J, P.O.S, Schoolboy Q, and Aesop Rock filling up the main stages. There are several dozen more -- including locals like Mixed Blood Majority and the Chalice, and blog fave$ like Joey Bada$$ and A$AP Ferg -- and the hosting finesse of Sway Calloway (of MTV fame), Blueprint, and J Pratt. The full lineup is below.

For those who attended the 2012 edition, we know Memorial Day weekend has the potential for the harsh weather. Bring some sunblock, a water bottle and provisions for rain -- and perhaps a lucky talisman of some sort.

So Snoop Dogg/Lion is staying busy as ever with a film, Reincarnated: The Movie, set to emerge in select theaters on March 15. None of said cinema houses are in the Twin Cities, though. The movie details Snoop's transition into a reggae musician with the blessing of Bob Marley's widow Rita and the production assistance of Diplo.

The album arrives in April, and so then we'll perhaps get a better sense of what we'll get when we see him at Soundset.

In addition to the music, Canterbury will be loaded up with live painting, a freestyle b-boy/girl competition, the Last of the Record Buyers production showcase, the annual Custom Car Show, and the Skateboard Showdown. It all fits together to be one of the biggest weekend events of the year
