Advice: Gary Vaynerchuk Says If Your Social Media Is Not Popping… It Is YOUR Fault (Video)

Shout to #ThisChrisEdits over on YouTube. I’ve been looking for this, at least clips of GaryVee at A3C last month. But check it out: Above, you can see the whole talk!

Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk knows his stuff about following attention. When he came to the A3C conference in Atlanta, he spoke about CONTENT, CONTEXT, and HUMILITY.

Now living in the era where content is KING , and context is QUEEN, Gary Vaynerchuk knows where the under-priced attention is of the people that you could potentially sell to in the future.

He’s been proven to be right over the past decade, so why not execute?

Listen closely, for he has some great information that he doesn’t mind giving away for free. All that we have to do is EXECUTE!!

Music in the intro was made by myself, and I was also the editor and videographer of this video.

A3C Recruits “FRKO” & “Sean Fahie” To Bomb Atlanta With Art (Video)

Music Festivals are in full swing this Summer all across the country.  One of the best Music Festivals that begins in the Fall is the A3C Festival which takes place right here where we reside in Atlanta, GA!  People ask how A3C has grown so big with it only being ten years in existence? I would say one of the reasons is A3C does a good job of working with people in the Atlanta scene not just rappers but media & sites ( like but also visual artists.  The Atlanta Art scene is close knit and buzzing so I was excited when I saw that FRKO & Sean Fahie were helping to spread the word about A3C.  Watch as they go around the city with one of the founders of A3C creating original artwork on posters from Old 4th Ward to East Atlanta.  Save the date October 7th-11th A3C 2015 goes down and of course & Beatz & Lyrics will be on the scene for sure! Video shot & edited by Marquise Adams.

Rap Quotes ATL : Dirty South Edition (Video)

So when it comes to classic rap lyrics many involve the artist shouting out their hometown or where they may reside at current time.  Not always content at just shouting out their city, but many rappers detail clothing stores, restaurants and of course the “Shoe Modeling Spots” (Strip Clubs).  Jay Shells (Artist/Designer) hailing from New York City has taken his love of rap quotes referencing cities to the next level.  He is behind the movement known as “Rap Quotes” where he actually creates signs with the lyrics of certain areas and places them exactly where the rapper mentioned.  He has done this in the cities of New York, LA, Philadelphia, and now he has come to the city I call home….Atlanta.  He was brought to the city by the founders of A3C festival and in the video shot by Animal New York you catch Jay placing the signs up all over town.  Jay Shells is coming back to Atlanta in October be and we will definitely talk with him for the site and Beatz & Lyrics Show!

Cormega Builds Bridges with ‘Dead End HipHop’ on the Social Politics of ‘MegaPhilosophy’ (Video)

Honest criticism is becoming a lost art. Good thing nobody has told the clever folks over at DeadEndHipHop that. They continue to review and discuss HipHop in a forum that is delivered with honest opinions, examples and sometimes arguments that lead to you guessed it a Dead End.

They say down with Cormega during the A3C festival back in October and just released the visuals for that interview. Cormega performed on our Beatz & Lyrics Show/ showcase during the festival. The review is of “MegaPhilosophy”,  Cormega’s recent album, entirely produced by Large Professor. The fellas Feefo, Kbinge, C-Town, and Beezy all give their thoughts on the album.  One of the highlights of the interview is Cormega interacting with Beezy who wasn’t that fond of some of the album’s message when they originally reviewed the album watch and see what happens.  So make sure you download the new mixtape “The Joint” brought to you by DeadEndHipHop & Salem Psalms Studio that features a track by Cormega CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

Revolt: A3C Festival Recap (Video)

“It just happened organically… That’s what so great about this whole sh!t. Everybody in Atlanta is in their own lane…”


Been talking about it. Been telling you don’t miss it. So, if you missed it… your bad. However, Revolt TV has done us all a solid with a recap of the five day festival.

‘The ninth annual A3C Hip-Hop Festival took over Atlanta last week, bringing together a slew of burgeoning and established artists, thousands of fans, and media and industry experts from all over the world. Originally founded as a three-day showcase that took place in one venue in Atlanta’s Midtown section, this year saw the fest spread to five days at multiple locations throughout the city.’

– Revolt TV

Check out the video from this year. It’s already America’s largest Hip-Hop festival; and it’s getting bigger and bigger, folks. Be sure to be there next year. We damn sure will!

“I really love what this conference represents. I love that most of the people that you see here are business-minded and it’s inspiring to see that Hip-Hop understands that instead of letting other companies and corporations brand us and make money off of us, we’re learning now how to brand ourselves to make our own money and income outside of just selling the music.”

Bun B (of UGK fame)

Along the vein of what we just posted from David Banner [on getting a handle on our Hip-Hop art and biz]. A3C has concerts, culture, and commerce going on all the while. Great event.
