Rukkus @ SXSW: Jay Z and Kanye West To Reunite for Samsung SXSW Event

Jay Z Kanye West SXSW 2014

Jay Z and Kanye West last performed as The Throne during the 2011-12 Watch The Throne Tour

The Throne – aka Jay Z and Kanye West – hasn’t been spotted in a minute. But those of you headed to SXSW could be lucky enough to catch them in action, for “a special, one-night-only performance.” The event will be the kickoff for Samsung’s four-day SXSW concert series, which begins tomorrow.

Jay Z and Kanye West To Perform at SXSW

Samsung will be distributing free wristbands ONLY to Samsung Galaxy owners (iOS sit down!) who download the Milk Music app, an ad-free radio service. The concert’s location won’t be announced until game time, but show-goers can cop their wristbands at the Galaxy Experience pop-up location at 2nd Street and Trinity Street today!

Samsung and Jay Z collaborated for his latest, Magna Carta Holy Grail, so it comes as no surprise that the Samsung fam pulled in Hov for an appearance (can’t be mad at the Yeezy appearance, either). The four-day concert series will also feature performances by Janelle Monae and Gary Clark Jr. on Thursday, Broken Bells on Friday, and Cut Copy and Holy Ghost! on Saturday. So if you’re out at SXSW, stop reading this and go get your wristbands now!
