Last night, Samsung celebrated night #2 of Galaxy Life Fest at SXSW with performances from ColleGrove – the new superstar duo composed of 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne – and Public Enemy.

To celebrate the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge devices and the latest ad campaign series featuring Lil Wayne, Samsung invited guests and Galaxy owners to the 2nd night of the 3-day music event at SXSW.

Public Enemy kicked things off in Austin with an unforgettable performance that kept the crowd on its feet all night. The band played a long list of favorites including “Don’t Believe the Hype” and the legendary “Fight the Power.” No stranger to political messages, Chuck D also used the stage to talk about some of today’s hot topics.

ColleGrove aka Chainz & Lil Wayne made their debut performance as they headlined the evening. 2 Chainz kicked things off with several solo tracks, followed by Lil Wayne, who performed favorites “A Milli,” “Lollipop,” “Truffle Butter,” and more. Then the duo took the stage and performed songs from the new album including “Watch Out” and “Duffle Bag.”
