This year, FACT TV’s Bryan McKay, Claire Lobenfeld and John Twells packed up and headed to Austin, Texas for South By Southwest 2016 and talked to some of the festival’s most exciting artists.

Hailing from Vallejo, California – home of the sorely missed Mac Dre and living legend E-40 – Nef the Pharaoh is one of a handful of young rappers to refocus attention on the Bay Area. We caught up with him at this year’s SXSW to talk about how the Bay is finally getting the shine it deserves, and what one of FACT’s rappers to watch in 2016 has planned for the future.

Nef the Pharaoh’s excellent Neffy Got Wings mixtape is out now.
