Free Thursday concert in Krzyzewskiville to feature Chance the Rapper, more

The “Tentagon” is the name of the towering green tent that sits on the edge of Cameron Indoor Stadium’s lawn, or Krzyzewskiville, where the Cameron Crazies have been camping out since January in tents. They're vying for wristbands that guarantee their entry to Saturday night’s No. 4 Blue Devils’ rematch against the No. 14 Tar Heels. There’s that one, and then there’s the solar powered tent.

But Krzyzewskiville's main attractions will become part of the background on Thursday, when 2013’s hip-hop magazine coverboy, Chance the Rapper, headlines Duke’s K-Ville Concert. The South Side Chicago emcee rang bells last year with the release of his Acid Rap mixtape, which received a Best New Music nod from Pitchfork and also earned him Rapper of the Year honors from SPIN. This year’s annual K-Ville (or “Personal Checks”) Concert will also feature Charlotte turntable duo, Styles&Beyond, and electro duo, ASTR. The show starts at 7:30 pm and is free for Duke students and whoever else can finagle their way into the show’s grounds. 

Last year, Fool’s Gold co-founder and turntablist, A-Trak, headlined the K-Ville show days before the then-No. 2 Duke squad held off UNC, 73-68. This year, the Blue Devils are hoping for a similar result two days after a performance by a yammering rapper named Chance, who happens to share the same hometown as Duke freshman and National Player of the Year contender Jabari Parker. Good luck, Crazies.
