is proud to announce that
Sir Michael Rocks
will be rocking on
for this year's
music festival in Austin. Antoine “Sir Michael Rocks” Reed (originally from Matteson, Illinois) is a rapper and one half of the acclaimed retro rap duo The Cool Kids, as well as the newest member of Curren$y's Jet Life label.
Known for his perpetually cooled out rhyme style, Sir Michael Rocks had dedicated himself to making hip-hop so fresh you'll think it came straight out the Ziploc.

Polo Perks Is Building a Future From Pieces of the Past
We talk to the Surf Gang artist about microdosing alternative music in his raps.
What are you looking forward to most about the experience?
Looking forward to performing the
joints and a few new songs people haven't heard.
What fellow artists are you most excited to see perform?
I'm actually just looking forward to seeing a lot of the new acts - nobody in particular. Anytime you come to SXSW you are surprised by the new groups that leave an impression on you.
What are you working on in the weeks/months to come that our readers/your fans should know about?
Pushing my last two projects
while I work on new music. Go get that!
