THE CULT CLASSIC SXSW 2015 PHILADELPHIA SHOWCASE PRIMER

-Joe Pitts (@headtowall)

An all Philadelphia showcase comes to SXSW for the first time

On March 20th at 8PM at the Old School Bar and Grill, the What Scene and Rec Philly collectives have gotten together to bring the first all-Philly showcase down to this year's SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. The lineup is an eclectic collection of various hip hop and hip hop-related artists from the Philadelphia area. Though legendary names like Freeway might ring a bell, some of the more lesser-known selections may not. So with that we give you the official Cult Classic SXSW 2015 Philadelphia Primer. Get to know the complete lineup with our hand-picked selections from each artist.

A quality record for the coming warm months (we've all had enough of this snow haven't we? Can we just ride already?)

Chill Moody

Freeway

Shame on you if you don't know this classic Philadelphia record

Tunji Ige

Lil Uzi Vert

Get hip to Lil Uzi; he is "next up" out of Philly (which is why we had to have him on our showcase at last year's A3C Hip Hop festival in Atlanta)
