For a few weeks each year, Austin, Texas, is transformed into a Mecca for technology enthusiasts, musicians, filmmakers, educators, and more. That’s right, it’s the South By Southwest festival. They have a saying down there, "Keep Austin Weird,” and during SXSW, it gets especially so.
This year, we set out to try and do something completely different. We’d heard about SaulPaul, the Houston-based rapper, youth mentor, and entrepreneur. After talking with the man himself, we agreed take to collaborate with SaulPaul on his 2013 SXSW Official Recap Raps.
Each day, SaulPaul was to record a song to "rap-up" the keynote speech, immortalizing the speaker's message in rap form. Then, our lead prezi designer, Steve, would take the audio and produce a rapid-response prezi to accompany it.
Below are SaulPaul’s five 2013 Official SXSW Recap Raps… powered by Prezi.
