SXSW: What You Missed At VIBE’s House of Vans Showcase

SXSW 2014 is officially a wrap. And while we might be a bit biased, we’re going on the record and dubbing our showcase the illest of them all. Yeah, we said it!

VIBE x Vans Coast to Coast: NY Meets LA showcase brought the best of the west and the beasts of the east together to the two-stage Mohawk venue. Here you could find the unbridled energy of Harlem up-and-comer Black Dave alongside Mack Wilds’ smooth hip-hop soul; Slaughterhouse’s uber-lyricism aside Ty Dolla $ign’s impromptu on-stage twerk-off; The Mighty Mobb Deep sharing a stage with Crenshaw’s own Nipsey Hussle.

In case you missed out on the festivities, here’s a recap of the showcase, featuring Mobb Deep performing “Shook Ones.” Until next year. Stay weird, Austin.
