Spurs star raps at SXSW
Stephen Jackson is a rapper? Stephen Jackson is a rapper.
The Spurs swingman is such a rapper, in fact, that on Wednesday he performed at the South by Southwest (SXSW) interactive conference and festival in Austin under the stage name Stak5.
The performance was a benefit for teammate Matt Bonner’s charity, Sneakers and Speakers, and a handful of Spurs joined Jackson on stage.
Social media was quickly buzzing with photos of the performance, where Jackson evidently backed up the rap skills that he has bragged about in the past.
SXSW is one of the biggest music festivals in North America, taking place in Austin every spring, and it is flooded with those in the music industry looking for the next big thing.
So, who knows, we might not be that far away from having our own Stak5 album.
Bonner, by the way, is known to be a bit of a music buff, and is especially fond of hip hop.
The Spurs’ trip to Austin was short as they had to return to San Antonio for a home game against Dallas Thursday night.
