Jay Z and Kanye West put on an amazing, 2 hour long, show at SXSW this year. The two Hip Hop Veterans went hit for hit on stage for 35 songs, and somehow was still out shined at times. How you ask? Tyler, The Creator, being the huge fan he is, was seen crowd surfing numerous times during the performance.
NME reported on the Odd Future leader.
“During their 35-song gig Tyler, The Creator of Odd Future could be seen crowd surfing on numerous occasions. The show was free to those in possession of a Samsung Galaxy with the Milk Music app installed and took place at Austin Music Hall. The gig was supposed to start at 10pm local time, but the two rappers, who in 2011 released their joint album ‘Watch The Throne’, began their two hour-long performance at 11.15pm. The show included joint performances of their ‘Watch The Throne’ tracks, such as ‘No Church In The Wild’ and ‘N*ggas In Paris’, as well as the artists’ own solo hits, such as Jay Z’s ‘Big Pimpin” and ’99 Problems’ and Kanye’s ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Runaway’.” (NME)
“In a sort of one-off re-launch of their Watch the Throne tour, rap titans Jay Z and Kanye West teamed up again last night for a celebratory – if not revelatory – SXSW show at the Austin Music Hall, filling the small-for-them 4600-seater to the point of nearly popping. Unsurprisingly for the veteran duo, they proceeded to basically make it pop, over the course of a two-hour-plus take-no-prisoners show that astonishingly didn’t once mention sponsors Samsung, who ostensibly footed the bill to promote their new music service, Milk.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
