Photos: Hit-Boy And Kid Cudi Set Off Myspace’s SXSW Concert Series


/ March 15, 2013

The first night night of Myspace’s “Secret” SXSW Concert series was packed with intense energy and showstopping sets.

While fans in Austin lined for hours before the show kicked off, was granted exclusive access to capture the madness. G.O.O.D. Music producer Hit-Boy kicked things off with his cohorts, Audio Push. Together, they made sure every fan was jumping up and down throughout their entire set. After running through a number of tracks from “HS87 All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of,” the Cali native turned things out by running through “Clique,” ASAP Rocky’s “Goldie,” and of course The Throne’s “N*ggas In Paris.” All of which he produced.

The crowd was given a brief intermission before another G.O.O.D. Music artist shut it down. Draped in a long black tee, skinny jeans and Jordans, Kid Cudi hit the stage like a bat out of hell. Clearly, Cudders had the most fans in the building as the packed audience hung on his every word. Cudi performed tracks from his debut album, “Man On The Moon,” and ran through songs from each of his following releases, including his latest album, “WZRD.” To close out the show, Diplo turned the event into a giant house party as he manned the turntables.
