After teaming up with Samsung for a series of hilarious Galaxy S7 ads, Lil Wayne joined the phone titan again for a SXSW showcase with his ColleGrove partner-in-rhyme 2 Chainz and the legendary Public Enemy.
P.E. opened the second night of Samsung’s Galaxy Life Fest with a hit-filled set. The politically-charged crew performed fan favorites like “Don’t Believe the Hype” and “Fight the Power,” which also opened and closed the Academy Awards this year.

Tunechi and Tity Boi followed Chuck D and Flavor Flav with their own energetic set. Chainz performed solo joints like “Watch Out” and “I’m Different,” while Weezy rocked out to “A Milli” and “Lollipop.”
The two also performed their collaborations, including “Duffle Bag Boy” and “Rich As Fuck.” Following an introduction from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, they continued with a pair of ColleGrove cuts, “Gotta Lotta” and “Blue C-Note,” which were taped for a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” segment.
Backstage after the show, Lil Wayne poured a bottle of champagne on his Galaxy S7 to show off the phone’s liquid resistant capabilities.
Santigold, The Arcs, and The Strokes teamed up for Galaxy Life Fest’s opening night on Friday. Sia and Elle King are set to close it all out tonight.
