Kanye West and Jay Z to Kick Off Samsung’s SXSW Concert Series

For the first time since the twosome wrapped their Watch the Throne tour in 2012, rap royalty Kanye West and Jay Z will perform a full concert this Wednesday (March 12) at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. West and Z will headline the first night of Samsung’s SXSW Concerts, according to Mashable.

Of course, this business move isn’t the first time Jay has hooked up with Samsung. Last July 4, he released his “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” album through Samsung Galaxy phones. Again, Galaxy users will have first dibs on the goods.

So far the location of the show has gone unannounced, but those with new ad-free radio service Milk Music downloaded on their Galaxy phones can pick up wristbands for it at the Galaxy Experience pop-up location at 2nd Street and Trinity Street starting Tuesday at 10 a.m. CT.

Coincidentally (maybe not), Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music (with rappers like Big Sean and Pusha T) is also having a showcase at SXSW on the same night at an undisclosed location.
