I was, trying to march crotch-first into a steamy mess of new
hip-hop, when my wasted ass – detached from whatever cranial
department it typically receives commands from – stomped across
Austin for a set by Mobb Deep. I just can't resist Havoc and Prodigy;
no little kid rapper with cool shades and an ironic t-shirt can curb

whole plan down here was – and still is, for the most part – to
discover new hip-hop. Particularly hip-hop that doesn't suck, and
that will get me away from relying on Spotify and its endless rap
oldies to get me stiff. However – this is SXSW after all, and there
are a few spectacles that I needed to glimpse and get out of the way
before all of that craziness commenced.
Days three and four of YOU CAN BE A WESLEY's tour. We played at a pizza parlor in Dayton, Ohio, slept in a suburban mansion and traveled to Louisville, Kentucky. We arrived during a winter chill, played at the Haymarket Whiskey bar and woke up to a new spring. Bicycles off of the back of the van, we enjoyed the weather before heading to Nashville, Tennessee.
