There are few better examples of world’s colliding than South By Southwest. The annual festival is a mecca for technology, film, music, and more. With that said, many of the power players from their respective industries arrive in town to network, party, and showcase their latest happenings. This produces many unique moments that can’t be duplicated.

We were there for one of those instances as we sat down with marketing mogul Steve Stoute, the extremely successful tech venture capitalist Ben Horowitz, and the iconic hip-hop artist Nas. Together they spoke about the Tanning Of America, hip-hop, and how their different fields have morphed over time.

If you haven't seen it already, make sure to catch Steve Stoute's The Tanning Of America on VH1 to see these three and many others expand on the topics from our interview.
