Even though SXSW typically takes place in Austin, Texas, you better believe the West Coast will be full represented during the festival.
That's because the third annual SXSW Respect The West showcase will be going down on Saturday, March 17th.
The show will be hosted by the legendary DJ Skee, and the showcase will feature a plethora of some of the best West Coast artists in the game.
Rappers expected to appear on the bill include three members of the Black Hippie crew, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and Ab Soul, Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle, Strong Arm Steady, Self Scientific and many more of the best from the west.
Even though great rappers have appeared in the past, we feel confident in saying that 2012's showcase might be the best yet!
