Lil Wayne was feeling inspirational while making an appearance at South By Southwest. Snoop Dogg admitted he was too high to notice he was performing on a stage five stories tall that looked like a vending machine. And rumors that Eminem will make a surprise appearance continued to swirl around 6th Street.

Hip-hop stars completed a near takeover of the music conference and festival in Austin, Texas, overnight Thursday and Friday with Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, B.o.B., T.I. and Wale all playing bass-booming showcases just blocks from each other into Friday morning.

And later in the day, Nas will be the subject of a Q&A interview and 50 Cent will headline the Shady Records showcase where he'll perform his iconic album "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" in its entirety live for the first time.
