The Summit, The Pinnacle, SXSW '08

I'm bruised, scraped, scratched and sedated. The week we've been waiting for hath come and gone, and in my assessment, SXSW '08 WENT THE FUCK DOWN. Haters sit down now.

Anyway, YOU CAN CLICK HERE to see a bunch of footage on AllHipHop.com
and YOU CAN CLICK HERE to see a bunch of footage on USTREAM. Check the Panel footage, like whoa.

CLICK HERE to read NEKESA MUMBI MOODY's story on SXSW Hip-Hop. She's with AP so the story got all over! Like 200 Papers. I love you Nekesa!

Also CLICK HERE check out the man ICE CUBE live in concert from Auditorium Shores.

I'll write an entire synopsis on this tomorrow (I swear and also realize I haven't in the past couple years), but for tonight let the pics and a few words here and there suffice.

I started off MY SXSW experience by rolling over to the Scoot Inn to check out my homegirl, the First Lady of Sabbathe in the Park...

Maggi Horn!
Killin' it.




My man Mike was feelin' her.


Chalie Boy killed it at FUZE!


DJ Bull


Public Offenders outside Fuze after their killer set.


These a couple of Hustlers in ATX whogo 24/7 and such


Bankroll Jones


Bushwick Bill rushed at the very least 50 stages at SXSW throughout the weekend. He rapped with bands, introduced bands, rappers, everyone.

Shit was insane. Flavor of Love was cool, but follow this dude with a camera and you'll have 15 seasons of money to be made.

Bun B came out and killed it for sure. (Like I say, more of a review coming soon, not tonight)







Thursday I was able to see ONE artist who I wanted to see that I was not responsible for.

El Remolon on the Zizek night at 90 Proof.
