Austin's premiere rap group, Magna Carda, makes a name for themselves within the local and global music scene. Extended: Breaking into the Austin music scene was never going to be easy but Magna Carda faced the additional challenge of being a hip-hop act in a city with a long, storied history of rock and roll.
