This week, in Austin Texas, the South by Southwest® (SXSW) Conferences & Festivals will begin. The music festival brings together artists from all locations and all genres, with thousands of people attending every year. The festival was put together as an attempt to get creative people from all over the world to come together and develop their careers amongst each other. Some of the artists scheduled to attend this year are Nas, 2Chainz, Ace Hood, Nipsey Hussle, and Kendrick Lamar, along with some of the other rappers introduced via XXL’s Freshman Class. And rumor has it that superstars Jay-Z and Eminem will also put on a special show on the last Saturday of the festival. This is just a rumor… that we hope is true!
