SXSW 2014.

YESSSSS, I was back at it this year again. SOUTHBYSOUTHWEST! I loved it, Austin is such an amazing city and has so much life there.  Everyone was in the city from March 6-15 for the big music fest.  A little background on South By South West;  It is a festival that showcases both films and music.  The first few days of the festival tend to be about the premiere of the films and as the days goes on it becomes more about the people.  The festival was much more commercialized this year.  It was packed with people and people and more people.  The media took over and seemed to overshadow the point of the fest. The point of the festival is to showcase upcoming artists from all genres and different places in the world.  However, this year Doritos, Monster, Spotify, Pandora, and several corporations completely took and put the festival on a pedistul and commercialized it. It was so ridiculous and almost scary. Their were three victims that were killed and I am praying for their families. Safety is very important for SXSW. I had the opportunity to see A$AP Mob, Future, BOB, Nas, Rich Homie Quan, Problem, and several other artists.  You all know I am a hip-hop head. A$AP Mob evokes a crazy energy from the crowd and it is completely better than anything you have ever experienced. Although, I enjoyed everything I can not say I am attending the festival next year.  I am used to the genuine aspect of the festival, where the fans connect with the artists.  Many fan bases are built there but, this year was so much BIGGER, AND BRIGHTER. It's crazy to see how much SXSW changed within a year.  Here are some of my favorite moments.

Bobby Ray AKA B.O.B was amazing.

Future was there bringing the ENERGY!


Nasty NAS! Nasir Jones! NAS! 






Chris Brown.

WOW! It has recently reported that Chris Brown will be serving a month in jail since he was booted out of REHAB! I honestly feel sympathy for Chris, it is as if he can not get a break.  It is just sad to see how his career in unfortunately taking a turn for the worst.  There are so many rumors and alleged reports.  Although, we must all be accountable for our actions.  Chris Brown is a leader, someone who the youth looks up to and it would not be fair if he was not penalized for his actions.  I am wishing the best for him and hope he keeps his head held high. (I hope his friend Justin Bieber is taking notice).  I am hoping the best for Chris and hope he gets out soon.  As the old saying goes. "don't do the crime, if you can't do the time"  Chris Brown is a man and should understand that he has to be responsible because, all eyes are on HIM!


(Chris Brown is looking much healthier, tho)
