As the days countdown to one of the biggest live music festivals of the year, South By Southwest, more stars from the hip-hop community commit to a live performance. The latest stars added to the lineup are Nas, Big K.R.I.T. and T.I.
SXSW, which goes down March 13th through March 18th, hosts live performances all week in Austin, Texas. The music and media conference hosts not only panel discussions from keynote speakers but also showcases roughly 2,000 musical acts from all genres.
Earlier announced performers include Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs, Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Theophilus London, Kirko Bangz, GZA, A$AP Rocky, Slaughterhouse and Mobb Deep to name a few.
The timing of the event couldn’t be better for artists like Schoolboy Q, who recently dropped Habits & Contradictions, or New Orleans native Curren$y who just dropped his EP Here. Former XXL Freshman Big K.R.I.T. is currently working on his next project 4evaNaDay, which is slated for release March 5th. —Christian Mordi
