This week, we tore up the Instagram accounts of artists at SXSW. Check out the pics we found while they were out in Austin.
See, this is why we can’t have nice things like photos with rap legends. Mr. Kevin Gates, I’ma let you finish your photo with Nas, but what the fuck is #either? I sincerely hope you’re not referring to Nas’ classic diss track “Ether” because that’s not spelled “Either.” And like, what does that hashtag even mean if you were referring to “Ether”? You’re posing with the guy and then referencing his past beef? What? “Either” way, it’s a nice pic though, and I’m going to pray that autocorrect did that to you.
Lil Herb highlights the less glamorous side of SXSW: the douchelords who don’t have tags and commit petty crimes and end up in the back of a Throwback Thursday-looking cop van that reads AUSTIN in big letters. I hope that EGGROLLS sign is a part of the van too, because that would be soooo “South By” to have a paddywagon double as a food truck.
I had to sort through several Action Bronson pics to find the best one. There was one of him serving poutine to everyone, but then I was getting hungry. This one is perfect though, because Bronson looks exactly like most of the dudes at SXSW try to look: The long beard, super long blunt, buttoned up shirt, and a knowing grin. And he’s at the Woodies to boot. This is a hipster guy’s wet dream outfit. Love the sepia filter too. Kind of makes him look like some Revolutionary War veteran.
Lauryn Hill requested that you jump, Wyclef. She also requested that everyone clear the floor for when you do jump.
And in Cool Crew News we have Zoe Kravitz hanging out with Miley Cyrus and Stella Maxwell. Seriously, the caption is so fitting because their walk-in should have A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin Problem” as the soundtrack. So much face, so much fierce. If they redid Mean Girls, these three should be the new Plastics.
Future didn’t get the memo that he was performing at SXSW and not Coachella, so he prematurely wore his offensive poncho.
If you don’t love Raury then there is something wrong with you. Seriously, look at him and his full-on rockstar pose on stage. What a guy, giving us Jimi Hendrix and Andre3000 (though NOT Andre3000 portraying Jimi Hendrix). Raury just knows how to give the crowd what they want. Hearts in eyes emoji.
Yeah, don’t try and focus the attention on your Rolex, Riff Raff. That shocking pink MCM bag will have both Cam’Ron and Cher from Clueless trying to rob you in these SXSW streets. Seriously though, what an expensive gimmick. An MCM purse? Next time you wanna be on your Tinky Winky (the Teletubbie who carried a purse for those who didn’t get the joke) you could just head over to Target and find one of those pink plastic purses they have next to the jewelry that turns your neck green.
I don’t know why, but this photo looks like The Weeknd is a production intern on the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live and his internship is ending, so before he goes back to major in Humanities at Duke, he HAD to get a photo with Jimmy for his mom.
Hey ladies, there’s a scary fucking panda behind you trying to photobomb. P.S. Snow, I need that “WOKE” hat.
As if the existing lineup of Rae Sremmurd isn’t enough, they had scary ginormous printouts of their heads at SXSW? And why is Miley cosigning this behavior? She has new friends like Zoe Kravitz to worry about.
Here’s Vic Mensa spraying the crowd with his essence…or his water bottle. Doesn’t this look like he tried pouring his water on the audience and they sprayed it back at him? Like “We don’t want your fucking water, Vic Mensa!” That one girl in the front though looks like she’s about to get baptized.
This Daily Juice sign says: The Backflip – Carrot, Apple, Lemon, Ginger – an exclusive drink to celebrate the work of musician Casey Veggies. So now we’re juicing to celebrate the work of musicians? What? Juicing in the name of rap? Would Biggie or Tupac approve of this? Sure, Big had a song called “Juicy” but um…yeah no.
While Ray J is sending dick pics to Kardashian trap phones, Brandy is out here at SXSW being adorable and taking pretty photos with Elle Varner.
This looks like Mike Will is taking selfies while Nardwuar is rolling a blunt on some obscure vinyl. It would explain why Nardwuar is so cool, but not explain why he’s so damn hyper. Maybe he laces it with Pixy Stix?
