Mark Spratley (@SpratFool) wears many hats within the industry, but he also has made a routine out of taking over the entire week of SXSW with some major events, shows and mansion parties. Bringing out acts before they pop has been an ability and asset of Sprats over the past 5 years. With artists like Post Malone, Russ, Lil Baby, Rich The Kid, A Boogie, PNB Rock, Moneybagg Yo, Megan Thee Stallion, Desiigner, 2 Chainz, Mike Will, Chief Keef, The Under Achievers, Joey BadA$$, Lil Xan and countless more blessing his stages or parties, this past year was nothing short of that. With co signs on his events from many prolific artists, the people, HotNewHipHop, The Source Magazine, Power 105.1 & Hot97, Sprat continues to build and has certainly showcased he is a wizard at what he does.
Sprat and some of your favorite artists kicked off the week with his coveted Legally Loud series and continued into the weekend with 3 massive mansion parties. With 15+ major and rising artists on each event, Power 105.1 as the official media sponsor, Martell and a Sonny Digital partnered event, it is safe to say Sprat made a splash. Bringing out the likes of Sonny Digital, Killumantii, Stunna 4 Vegas, Snap Dogg, Blacc Zacc, S3nsi Molly, Yung Bleu, BBG Baby Joe, Lil Mosey, Zias, Backpack Kidd, Kenneth Faried (Houston Rockets), Dutchess (Black Ink) and many more, Sprat set up his own festival within a festival and created many viral and engaging moments.
Sprat says “The whole point behind these extravagant mansions and LVLUP is so that everyone can feel like a damn boss! I’m not with all that table or club sh*t, I want everyone to feel like a boss, vibe and enjoy themselves at least for one night. Not everywhere can you actually be in a party, at a luxurious mansion, with all these major artists, influencers and powers around you and everyone enjoying themselves”
He goes on to say “You know I got juice within the industry and my network is vast. You never know who is going to be at one of my events or who you could meet and link with. Much love to TQ, Hustle Hearted, Martell, Power 105.1, Zias, all the artists, DJ’s for the support and all the people that came out”
