Three nights of entertainment at the iconic Lumber Exchange Building in downtown Minneapolis were announced Thursday, featuring appearances from Jamie Foxx, Lil Jon, Ludacris, Rick Ross, Nick Cannon and more. DJ Diesel (aka Shaquille O’Neal) is even showing up. Kaskade and RL Grime lead a substantial DJ lineup as well.
