The SXSW festivities has had everyone talking about the different events and performances going down and fans are excited about the scene in general.

Bubba Sparxxx, who's never performed at the annual event, says SXSW isn't the same as it was years ago.

"I never actually did a South By Southwest [show]. But seems to be a very expected event, particularly for people that are just breaking into the game and are on the cusp. I think it was a very beneficial tool to get those people exposure. I'm not really sure what it's morphed into. At this point, I've seen a lot of the same people doing it for the past few years and I'm not sure how effective it is. I don't think it can hurt somebody at this point but I definitely don't think South By Southwest is the same tool for getting recognized that it was three, four and five years ago. 

I heard 50 Cent is going to perform the entire Get Rich or Die Tryin' which is awesome and I would love to be there, but that's what I'm saying; I remember what it originally started as, for independent bands to get exposure and then independent hip-hop acts and now it's established people performing there. Like I said, I don't have the knowledge of understanding exactly what the event is. I don't know if it's going to turn into some type of festival, but I think for the most part it's an excuse for people to go out, get f*cked up and listen to music."

What do you think about Bubba's opinion on the South by Southwest event?
