Hip Hop (Halifax CANADA)
**Love this! Everyone should go and download his K.R.E.A.M. mixtape. The track Quite Like This is my favorite!
220. Das Racist
*Rap/ Hip Hop (Brooklyn, NY)
Ohhhh mannnnn! I was so ready to post about these guys! When I found out that Das Racist was returning to SXSW this year I got so excited!! I saw these guys 2 years ago and last year they were my first show of the year! I have been a Das Racist fan since about 2009. The second I heard Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell I was in love and when I heard Chicken and Meat I feel even harder! If you’ve never seen or heard these guys then listen to them NOW! They are great! They put on a great show too! Their mix tape, Shut Up Dude, is one of my favorites, every song is a good one! I’d probably have to say that Hugo Chavez is my favorite though “Me and Maya Angelou playin double dutch, she gotta bubble butt, she say I like you too, then we smoke two dutch, thats a double dutch my dude, I really like her views, guess you can say Angelou’s my muse…” AHH I love it! I can’t believe they are blowing up so quick, its like watching my own child grow up before my eyes! I highly suggest you go see them during sxsw because sooner or later you’ll have to be paying the big bucks to see them!
Haha, This is me dancing with Victor Vazquez of Das Racist at SXSW last year!
214. Shawn Chrystopher
*Hip Hop/ Rap (Inglewood, CA)
I believe that Shawn Chrystopher could be this sxsw’s B.O.B. or The Cool Kids. He’s pretty pretty good! He’s got that nerdy rapper look and feel, which is what I like when it comes to hip hop!
208. Bliss n Eso
*Hip Hop (Australia)
Great rap group from Australia. They were in the American scene in 2008-09 and were nominated for the MTV Video Music award for Best Independent Artist in 2009. Bliss n Eso are very well known in Australia and now they are heading back to America for this years sxsw. I’m really into their song Addicted.
175. Professor Green
*Hip Hop/ Rap (London, England)
I will definitely be seeing Professor Green. 1. He has a song with Lily Allen 2. His beats are sick!! He just might be the hip hop act I’m most excited to see! Go listen to any of his songs, they are all bad ass!
*Hip Hop/ Beats (Paris, France)
So cool. I really enjoy listening to Onra’s cool, chill, hip hop beats. As soon as you start listening you want to nod your head or tap your foot just a little bit! He’s definitely going to be a fun act to see! Listen to L.I.A.B. it will have you moving!
*Hip Hop (Los Angeles, CA)
I have had the song Fornever foreverrr! Murs is a really cool hip hop artist, who would be totally cool to see! Take a listen!!
143. Grieves with Budo
*Hip-Hip (Seattle, WA)
I’ve never heard of these guys, but they must be kind of big because they are headlining the Vans’ Warped Tour this summer. They kind of remind me of a slower Asher Roth, and they don’t only rap drinking and drugs. They’re pretty cool, if I have time I might check them out!
128. Dame Fifty’5
*Hip- Hop/ Indie (Los Angeles, CA)
Mannn this dude is sickkk. He reminds me a lot of Kid Cudi, who I absolutely lovee! He has that cool, chill, hip style of rapping, which is what I love. There’s nothing better than listing to cool hip-hop while cruising on a sunny day. Dame Fifty’5 will definitely will be added to my cruising playlist. Oh and check out their remix of Kid Sister’s Pro Nails…. soooo good!
95. Tego Calderon
*Latin/ Hip Hop (Puerto Rico)
Latin hip hop is not really my style. Sorry.
