I’m as biased as anyone could be as this is our showcase, but I’m confident that this is one of the best lineups you’ll find at SXSW this year. It’s filled with some of the most promising rising hip-hop artists of the new generation, and unlike the majority of showcases, there’s an appropriate number of artists on the bill, not 30-40. No shade though.
I understand that these are all relatively new names though, artists that haven’t been on the scene for more than a couple years, so I want to help catch you up so you can understand the greatness of this show in the moment instead of wishing you had two years from now. Scroll through below for a brief introduction to each artist on the official Tim + Goodwin showcase.
