South By Southwest 2014 Soundcloud PlaylistThe music end of the South By Southwest interactive conference & festival has officially kicked off.  With hundreds if not thousands of acts set to take the stage of the coming days (till March 16th) the question becomes not whos there, but who isn’t.

SXSW features performers of all genres, but hip hop has really rose up the ranks over the past half decade to become probably the most prominent and influential part of the festival.  This year is no exception with the recently annoucned Jay Z & Kanye West Samsung Show, TDE’s major presence and a myriad of other shows featuring talent both on the comeup and highly established.

We’ve compiled a playlist (of all generes) featuring some of the acts that are highly anticipated in the coming week.  Check it out below
