Oddly enough, as the days have progressed during my stay in Austin my nights (sleeping-wise) have been reduced. Not too odd after all right? Anyways, Day 3 (Friday) has left me extremely exhausted as I write this on the morning of Day 4 (Saturday). I guess that's what happens when you get back to the hotel at 6:30am and wake up at 9:30 (I just can't sleep late).

Anyways, I actually forgot how yesterday started. However, I remember getting to The Rising presenting by none other than DJBooth.net and 2Dopeboyz. The first act I peeped there was North Carolina's own King Mez, and homie definitely performed his duties as an emcee. Throughout the afternoon I came and went (for refills..on food), but was able to catch Freeway towards the end of the show. The Philadelphia Freezer tore the stage down as he went through various hits from his catalog.

I also stopped by the Fader Fort (you're thinking "again??") and caught hip hop's most talked about guys of the moment, Odd Future, who had an interesting performance. I say "interesting" because I can't really define it. Nothing further on that.

After that was done, I actually didn't check out any hip hop acts (late evening that is), instead settling for a rock band with a friend. Not my usual cup of tea, but a scenery change is nice.
Taking it easy today, since I'll be driving 8 hours home tomorrow, but if you suggest any shows hit me @itsivanibarra and maybe I can write about them tomorrow morning.

ALSO, one show I definitely want to see tonight at the Fader Fort is none other than Lil B the Based God himself. Cook.

Kanye and G.O.O.D. Music have their showcase tonight by Vevo, so if you are able to get into that, enjoy!
