It's that time of year again. After we got the lineups for Coachella and NYC's Governer's Ball last week, Austin's annual South By Southwest event has unveiled its preliminary list of performers. More will be added in the coming weeks, but for now check out the confirmed artists from the hip-hop/R&B world below.
If you recall, Tyler was arrested at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas on Saturday after he urged fans right outside of the venue to break past the barriers set up keeping them out of the show, which was already at capacity. In doing so he (allegedly) incited a riot of sorts.
ScHoolBoy Q tweeted his discontent with not getting into 50 Cent's show at SXSW, but apparently his issues with the festival go a little deeper than that. The Oxymoron rapper explained in an interview with the Washington Post that the festival has changed, in that the fans are no longer a priority.
Danny Brown was seen just before his birthday sporting his famous goofy grin and rather alarming bright green hair. However, the critically adored rapper remembers an earlier time at the most famous Austin festival and as he makes clear in his interview with Complex, he likes the old version better.
Childish Gambino seemed relieved to beat the heat when Complex caught up with him for an interview during the South By Southwest festivities. Gambino as Donald Glover (his real name) is known as a successful comedian, television writer, and actor, but it appears he's focusing on music.
50 Cent, like the rest of the music industry, is in Austin, Texas for SXSW right now, and after performing a new track, "Hold On", Fif participated in a fairly disorganized interview backstage-- but we did learn some things.
Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and instantly bursted into uncontrollable laughter? Raised your eyebrow? Scratched your head? Instantly smiled? Thought, "Damn. That's dope."? Stared at your phone? Did an instant repost? HNHH is sure you've answered yes to at least one of those questions.
We reported on the horrific news yesterday that a drunk driver at SXSW ran into a barricade outside of where Tyler, The Creator was supposed to perform, and proceeded to run over innocent pedestrians. In all, he killed two people, injured twenty-three, and critically injured five.
