Babyface Ray, Jasiah, Guapo, BillyRacxx and Sheck Wes all made dramatic appearances at RapTV’s Rolling Loud weekend showcase. Nevertheless it was Saturday’s headliner Don Toliver — a Houston native nonetheless driving excessive on final 12 months’s Lifetime of a Don — who arguably did essentially the most together with his allotted time onstage.

If there was any criticism of the mini-festival, it’s that lots of the performers appeared rushed, with artists simply operating by way of their songs. Toliver was conscious of this and edited his to incorporate at the least a portion of all of the hits his followers wished to listen to. “Can’t Really feel My Legs,” “After Occasion,” and “Lemonade” crackled with electrical energy and highlighted Toliver’s command of a stage.

He by no means pushed the gang, however as a substitute guided them, presiding over the past real occasion of SXSW 2022.
