Southern Hospitality was immensely honoured to be invited to attend SXSW Music Festival for the fourth year running and given the opportunity to put on our dream rap line-up.
Our good friends at FACT Magazine were in town and managed to simultaneously film the event and get buck with us. This is what they had to say:
One of the festival’s highlights was the bumper Rap Gods showcase from Southern Hospitality, which featured appearances from Baton Rouge’s Kevin Gates, ratchet reps Problem, Iamsu! and Sage The Gemini, Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul (who interrupted his set to question John about the sexual preferences of English females), Houston’s BeatKing and plenty more.
Bryan McKay caught some of the best bits of the showcase on camera, and has compiled them into a short taster of what most of us missed – our money’s on Gates’ heart-wrenching set, performed only days after his release from jail.
Special thanks to the FACT TV team: John Twells, Chris Kelly and Bryan McKay.
