Sway SXSW Takeover 2016: The Original Hyena Lantana Crushes a Performance of “Where You Been”

We were first put onto Lantana two years ago when he came up and blew us away with his bars. Since then the Cincinnati emcee has done our Doomsday Cypher twice as well as a Friday Fire Cypher. Deemed the OG hyena by Sway and the crew, Lantana is always hungry to grab the mic and tear is to shreds.

Things were no different last week at SXSW as Lantana came on stage and knocked a performance of his single “Where You Been” out of the park. Check out the official performance above along with some of Lantana’s other outstanding performances on Sway in the Morning below.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
