The rappers will be back together again onstage for a special concert on March 12 at the Austin festival.

For the first time since the twosome wrapped their Watch the Throne tour in 2012, rap royalty Kanye West and Jay Z will perform a full concert on Wednesday at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, headlining the first night of Samsung's SXSW Concerts.  

This business move isn't the first time Jay Z has hooked up with Samsung. Last July 4, he released his Magna Carta…Holy Grail album through Samsung Galaxy phones. Once again, Galaxy users will have first dibs on the goods.

So far the location of the show has gone unannounced, but those with new ad-free radio service Milk Music downloaded on their Galaxy phones can pick up wristbands for it at the Galaxy Experience pop-up location at 2nd Street and Trinity Street starting Tuesday at 10 a.m. CT.

Coincidentally (or maybe not), Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music (with rappers like Big Sean and Pusha T) is also having a showcase at SXSW on the same night at an undisclosed location.
