Hip hop mega-star 50 Cent joined us during SXSW Music for an exclusive interview covering the breadth of his career. Hardknock.tv's Nick Huff Barili delved into 50's life, starting with the tenth-anniversary look back at the legendary "Get Rich Or Die Trying," a sales success 50 doubts he or anyone will be able to replicate in today's music industry. 50 explained his loyalty and desire to provide for the artists he takes under his wing with G-Unit, the evolution of hip hop metaphors over the last decade, and how he balances his busy life outside of making music.

Welcome to SXSW
The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery. Mark your calendar for SXSW 2014 (March 8-16, 2014) and SXSW EDU (March 3-6, 2014) and check out our other events SXSW V2V (Aug 11-14, 2013) and SXSW Eco (Oct 7-9, 2013).
SXSW V2V is hitting the road this summer to meet up with entrepreneurs, digital creatives and tech professionals from around the country who want to share a drink, mingle, and learn more about what SXSW has planned for its first-ever event in Las Vegas this August. The drinks are on us!
Each year SXSW Eco travels around the country to host networking events for local sustainability communities and meet innovators in the diverse fields represented at SXSW Eco.
Today, SXSW Eco is coming to Boston for a community meetup at Greentown Labs, an incubator space for cleantech startups in Boston’s Innovation District. Join us at The SXSW Eco Boston Meetup on April 23 from 6-8pm and RSVP here.
In light of the past week’s tragic events we are grateful to the Boston community for having us. SXSW is deeply saddened by the events that took place in Boston and in West, Texas last week. To show our support to those most affected by these events we've established an online giving site through the SXSW Community Fund. Donations made through this site will go to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
