The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) is no longer an enigma in music. The Canadian singer has embraced his newfound fame after inking a major label deal last year with Universal Republic. His latest album, 'Trilogy,' contains remastered tracks from his trio of popular online mixtapes, which helped transform him into one of the most highly sought-after R&B stars of today.
There were plenty of surprises at the BET Music Matters Showcase at SXSW in Austin, TX on Thursday (March 14). During T.I.'s headlining set, Kendrick Lamar jumped onstage for a memorable performance of their collaborative tune, 'Memories Back Then,' from Tip's 'Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head' album.
