Lupe Fiasco kicked off the Texas leg of his Tetsuo & Youth Tour and we were there to capture a brief performance of the second official single from Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1. Watch as Lupe performs "Bitch Bad."
Lost footage is awesome. When I was cleaning out the camera in preparation for SXSW 2013 I stumbled upon a couple of videos that didn't quite make it to our SXSW 2012 Recap last year. As the festivities in Austin get under way, I thought it'd only be right to share some of our favorite moments from last year.
That being said, Mistah F.A.B. is a freestyle machine and we captured it all on BG's trusty handheld. I saw the Bay Area emcee on the street and being the newbie that I was, Gotty™ damn near demanded that I request a freestyle. I did. He delivered, shouted out the team, and make me a believer that top-of-the-dome freestyles still exist.
You may or may not be familiar with Paris Pershun and Gravy Slim, but chances are that 2013 will change all of that. The Dallas-based duo is starting 2013 off right with the release of their sophomore project, DiveHiFlyLo, as a follow-up to 2011's smash offering - When Pigs Fly.
We sat down with P and Slim as they talked about their creative process, how they come together to create and what exactly makes a song nod-worthy in this special #DiveHiFlyLo edition of Beats x Bars. Plus, you'll get a first listen to one of the new songs from the project, "+ (Plus is Silent)."
