Festival Coverage

DJ Iron Mic at SXSW


The final night of the festival brought monster performances all over the city of Austin. If one super power would be useful during SX, it would be astral projection, because there is seriously no way to see everything you want.

Redman got the night started right at Moody Theatre with one of the best performances of the night. The aging rapper still rocks a crowd harder than most, and had the audience jumping and screaming curse words at him.

G-Eazy followed him with a performance that was good, but not as good as Red’s.

Joey Bada$$ stormed the stage with his Pro Era crew and ran the crowd through hits from his new album B4.DA.$$. He led the audience in a moment of silence for his fallen Pro Era cofounder Capital Steez, then exploded into the single that started it all, “Survival Tactics.”

J. Cole hit the stage, reppin North Carolina to the fullest, and sending every females in attendance into hysterics.

The night ended at The Belmont, where Ghostface Killah and Raekwon celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. They performed the whole record back to front for the fans. It was an epic performance that was a once in a lifetime show for any Wu head.
