A3C X DJ Booth X AllHipHop.com SXSW Showcase Recap

Posted by Andy Pitre on Mar 18

I think that it's safe to say that our first official SXSW showcase was a success. Before we go any further, I want to send love to DJ Booth and AllHipHop.com for making it happen. It was great seeing you guys and we appreciate all the hard work you put in.

Another big thank you goes out to all the artists and fans who came out to the show. This was my first time at SXSW and it was crazy (and I wasn't even there for the whole week!). By Saturday night, I felt like I was ready for a nap and I know that everyone who came out felt the same way... don't forget what they say about sleep.

Highlights, in Reverse Chronological Order (Pics Below)

Obviously, Mobb Deep put on live show, and added a special guest appearance from Big Noyd. Seeing Shook Ones Pt. 2 performed live is an incredible experience (video coming soon).

Brother Ali performed with a live band, and they brought the house down. They're going to be touring later this year, I highly recommend checking them out if they come through your area.

Homeboy Sandman is one of my favorite performers. Not only his he a dope MC, but he also has the charisma and energy to get the crow really moving. I've seen him rock crowds of hundres, and crowds of dozens and he puts in the energy no matter what. Truly one of my favorite rappers.

I was only able to catch Rittz rocking for a few minutes on the DJ Booth Stage, but he was great as usual.

This was my first time seeing Hopsin perform, and I have to give to the young gentleman and his crew. They were live has hell.

Jerren was rocking a Davie Crocket head piece, and brought a ton of energy. This was my first time seeing him too. He put on a great show.

I feel bad that I missed Emilio Rojas's set because I happened to be running around handeling some stuff at the time. I heard he did well and, based on his previous performances I'm sure he killed it. Same with Gangsta Boo.

Killa Kyleon was rightfully representing Texas hard during the showcase.

Jon Connor was rolling deeeeeeeep all weekend, you could see his crew from like half a dozen blocks away. He brought that same crew to the showcase and got the venue bumping, even though it was still pretty early in the night.

Young Scolla and Boog Brown (with her DJ Dillion) were the first two acts to get the party started and set the tone for the dopeness that was to follow. They are two of my favorite performers and I'm grateful they made it out. I've never seen them outside of the A3C.

(Personal side note: Dillion, great to see you man)

Special thanks also to Fort Knox, who hosted the show and kept the crowd hyped all night. Knox, you are truly an insane human being (and you know I mean that in a good way). Another special thanks to DJ Jelly, who held down the ones and twos.

Check out the images below and don't forget to make your way down to ATL this October 11-12-13 for the 8th annual A3C Hip Hop festival.
