AUSTIN, Texas — Chicago hip-hop — in all its variety — has been on full display at SXSW.
Chance the Rapper led things off Thursday with the first of three sets by rocking the Karma Lounge for the “Drive the Noize Showcase” put on by Chicago-based start-up CrowdNoize.
Afterward, Chance and seemingly everyone else associated with Chicago rap music descended on the Red Bull Sound Select Stage for a Chi-town hip-hop showcase featuring ShowYouSuck, Chance, Spenzo, L.E.P. Bogus Boys and a re-connection of the Cool Kids before Master P topped things off for the night.
