The Chi Went To Austin And Rocked The House with Leikeli47, Air Credits, DMC and More!By Delaina Dixon | March 19, 2018 | Entertainment
We’ve┬ábeen watching THE CHI on Showtime and it’s soooo┬ágood! Fans of the hit series got a chance to celebrate its success at South by Southwest┬« (SXSW┬«) Conference and Festivals last week at The Showtime House at Clive Bar on Rainey Street in Austin. Live hip-hop artists took to the stage to share their art of music.
Lee Fields &┬áthe Expressions, whose music is featured on the series, got the crowd pumping.
Brooklyn rapper┬áLeikeli47 spit rhymes in her signature mask.
Air Credits laid down lyrics as well.
The Roots, who had their SXSW Concert canceled due to a security concern, were in the house.
The celebration also included a custom sneaker gallery, Chicago graffiti art and food.┬á The night culminated with a DJ set from RUN-DMCΓÇÖs Darryl┬áDMC McDaniels.
Catch up THE CHI, which just aired its first season finale last night, on Showtime On Demand.
