UllNevaNo and E Major at The Fader Fort
E Major and Big Pooh of Little Brother
It’s crazy cause right now I’m only 2 days removed from being in Austin and it feels like it was a dream. It was really a whirlwind of a trip. I got into Austin super late on Thursday and was on 6th Street checking out the scene at 10 AM the next day.
All Friday I went from place to place until 3 AM. I linked up with the homie UllNevaNo and we went to The Fader Fort and hit the HipHopDx showcase among other things. The thing about SXSW is that it’s totally overwhelming. There is music coming from every door and window and there are bands in the streets just setting up to play. It’s crazy. I did what I could to network and ate when I had a chance.
When I woke up on Friday I was dead tired. I got some food and my dad who lives in Texas came to see me. We ate and headed down to 6th Street. My pops who had been to Austin many times was stunned at the amount of people and craziness that filled the streets.
Pops went off to a movie and I linked up with Kane Mayfield and the Mania Music guys. We just posted up and literally the people started passing by us. We were shouting people down and giving out business cards and just building with mad different people.
After that we hit The Dopehouse which was cool. Got to me both of the 2DopeBoyz. I split from them after that and went over to the DJ Booth showcase and did some more networking there. Unfortunately though I had to leave because I had a super early flight the next day. So before I could blink the whole thing was over.
Even though it was crazy I am so glad I did it. I wanted to go SXSW literally for years. My hope is that next year I’ll be on a stage there and my name will be on a flyer.
