“Jay-Z the first night, Kanye last night and Weezy on Thursday.” These aren’t lyrics from Ye’s next song, but the acts that I’ve been experiencing since arriving in Austin. Things have changed so much at SXSW. Last year, it was all about seeing Odd Future and Lil B, 12 months later and all of rap’s top dogs have to show face in some sort of form. Think about it… (almost forgot Rick Ross and MMG on Thursday, too)
Now, feast your eyes on Lil Wayne bringing a whole other wave of energy to Texas. Thanks to Mountain Dew and their new DeWeezy campaign with Lil Wayne, lucky festival goers were treated to an electrifying performance by The Martian. Watch Weezy kick things off above.
