Rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West are to perform together tomorrow (March 12) at South By Southwest in Austin, Texas.

The show is free to those in possession of a Samsung Galaxy with the Milk Music app installed. Wristbands will be available from the Samsung Galaxy Experience at 333 E. 2nd Street, Austin from 10am local time today (March 11). The location of the show has not yet been announced. Launched yesterday, Milk Music is a new, free streaming service for Galaxy owners.

Jay Z and Kanye West united as Watch The Throne for a 2011 album, and despite hinting that a follow-up was planned, the project has thus far remained a one-off. The Watch The Throne tour visited Britain in May 2012, and included five consecutive dates at the London's O2 Arena.

Last night, a previously-unknown collaboration between Daft Punk and Jay Z surfaced on YouTube. It isn't clear when the track, titled ‘Computerized’, was recorded, though it’s likely to have been before Jay Z's summer 2013 alliance with Samsung, as the lyrics find him making multiple references to his Blackberry.
