Right when you thought you were over SXSW Interactive, we launch a crazy rap music video to remind you of the amazing time you had.

THE SXSW RAP
By Rebecca Corliss (@repcor)

It's "South by" where the geeks are fly
Twenty minutes without Twitter
And we'd probably die
You know why
Yo, am I following you?
Your avatar is sweet
It's too good to be true
Staying weird in Austin
Parties every night
And my Twitter grade status
Gonna cause a bar fight
That picture I took?
I'll put it up on Facebook
And I'll tag it so good
That your motha' might look
Word. Absurd.
You're only hot if you're a nerd
Microblogging so sweet
That you know it's overheard. What?

SXSW. Party in the club. Homies start a geek fest.
SXSW. And we'll be a trending topic 'tik six in the morning.

With Pete Cashmore on my arm
We ghost riding down the street
And you know you check out Julia
When she decides to Tweet
It's sweet.
Taking Twitpics of the honies
Cause it's funny
In the iPhone store buying apps and spending money
Park my Mini Cooper
ReadWriteWeb and TechCrunch Chill
Arrington is blogging,
"MAN THIS PARTY'S FREAKING ILL"
Yo, GaryVee you and me should party in this motha'
Sippy sip with Kawasaki!
And! Brogan with his pirate crew
I'm hanging on the poolside
Robert Scoble is that YOU?

SXSW. Party in the club. Homies start a geek fest.
SXSW. And we'll be a trending topic 'tik six in the morning.

Baby you look fly
Connect to my API
Going viral like a spiral
As we own the public eye

Don’t be wasting all my flaver
With your Windows pipe screensaver
Crowdsourcing reinforcing
Cloud computing
Touch the sky!

Don’t  go be wack like Plurk
Fly dawgs Mechanical Turk
We pull out Qik because it’s sick
Gangsters in real-time at work

Interactive is attractive
Here at SXSW
If everything’s bigger in Texas
Then it’s geeks who do it BEST!

SXSW. Party in the club. Homies start a geek fest.
SXSW. And we'll be a trending topic 'tik six in the morning.
