    Samsung got its money's worth from Jay Z and Kanye West.

    Two of rap's top stars combined for a powerful, hit-filled two-hour show Wednesday night and Thursday morning during South By Southwest in Austin.

    The show was one of the most anticipated surrounding the annual buzz-building gathering and fans with Samsung devices with the company's new streaming music service, Milk Music, were granted free entry.

    Samsung announced the Austin Music Hall show early this week and scheduled the pair at the same time as the iTunes Festival's hip-hop night that featured Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q at the nearby ACL Moody Theater.
