The Throne is getting back together: Kanye West and Jay Z will join forces for their first joint performance in two years at South by Southwest this week. According to The Austin Chronicle, the hip-hop duo will kick off Samsung’s four-day concert series on Wednesday night at the Austin Music Hall.
Per Mashable, Samsung plans to distribute concert wristbands only to owners of Galaxy devices that have downloaded the ad-free radio service Milk Music. Wristbands can be picked up at the Galaxy Experience pop-up location at 2nd Street and Trinity Street starting Tuesday at 10 a.m. CT.
If you’re an iPhone owner, all is not lost: Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music record label will host a showcase at Brazos Hall on Wednesday night. The lineup includes Pusha T, King Louie, Been Trill, and other members of G.O.O.D. Music, along with a “surprise guest,” and I’m going to go ahead and guess it’s not William H. Macy.
