[Video] Common Brings Out Kanye West for Surprise Performance at AAHH Fest

Living up to all the hype, AAHH Fest 2014 served all that and more last night for hip hop fans. Not only did it have an awesome lineup, it also had some pretty big surprises as well. The event took place in Chicago's Union Park and it was presented by Common with Dave Chappelle as host.

Kicking off the main stage, Chicago rapper Lil Herb turnt up the crowd with his opening performance followed by CZA and Jay Electronica. Legendary group De La Soul electrified the stage with their hip hop classics along with veteran rapper MC Lyte, who surprised the crowd by bringing out Lil Mama.

Later in the evening, R&B songstress Jennifer Hudson took the stage and smoothed things out with a powerful vocal performance, singing songs from her past and upcoming album. Hometown rapper Lupe Fiasco turned back up the crowd with his display of genius, spitting rhymes hot like lava.

Closing out the night, Common took center stage, in front of his hometown crowd, performing songs from his two decade career with classic tracks and new joints from his latest album Nobody's Smiling. Before ending the show, Com took to the crowd and thanked them for their undying support and then brought out Twista for a few songs followed by the biggest surprise of the evening, Kanye West.
