HoustonSoReal brings hip hop happenings to SXSW

Matt Sonzala, undeniably Houston’s best-known and loved hip hop promoter (and HoustonSoReal blogger), has a TON of events scheduled and shows he wants you to attend during this year’s SXSW. The fun starts that Tuesday evening and continues throughout the week — Devin the Dude, Chamillionaire, Willie D, Coughee Brothaz, PPT, Grit Boys, Monet Waters, UGK, Roxy Cottontail, Studemont Project (a favorite of mine), and much more.
