Kanye & Jay Z Rock SXSW
South By Southwest has made itself the premier music release show of the year. Each and every show brings new and old talent alike, and sets the stage for music for the next year. The stand out this year, Kanye & Jay Z!
SXSW’s longstanding nickname “Indie Rock Spring Break” certainly wasn’t accurate during the final day of the Austin music festival as hip-hop took over the Texas town, culminating in Kanye West’s not-so-secret show in the city’s former power plant.
After a day marked by stellar sets from Big Boi at the MOG showcase at the Mohawk; Killer Mike, Lil B and a surprise mini-set from Diddy and Odd Future at the Fader Fort; Z Trip with special guest LL Cool J at the Red Bull Thr3style event; and Snoop Dogg and Warren G performing a Nate Dogg tribute at the Pepsi Max party, it was time for the festival’s biggest (and hardest to get into) showcase — Kanye’s VEVO Power Station.
