“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.’

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.

DJ Premier chats with WM40A about Jay Z’s “Pound Cake” verse (we’ve posted on that joint and remixes like the one The L.O.X. did on here), his beatmaking, and a long hoped for collabo LP with Nas at the A3C music festival in Atlanta. Really hope you made it out to some of A3C at least, or got to experience it somehow (shared videos, Instagram/Twitter feeds… something). Great event… for the culture, classic moments, and scoops like this!
A3C, the largest Hip-Hop festival in the United States, is this week (starting Wednesday, October 2nd)! That’s a reminder for the two or three of you who are not already amped about it. Have you got your passes yet? If not, a word… HURRY (and get the all-access, five-day pass…best value)!
Have you SEEN the lineup of events, appearances, and happenings for this year’s A3C? I mean, besides the dopeness that will be the True School Cypher hosted by our own JayForce & Fort Knox (see earlier post), A3C encompasses a spectrum of entertainment and cultural experiences – education, film, style, pro-audio, art, technology, gaming, sports, break-dance and more.
The lineup? Oh, I dunno… just the likes of Ghostface Killah, Questlove, Bun B, Too Short, ScHoolboy Q, A$AP Ferg, Talib Kweli, Meek Mill, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Young Guru… (more). Man, enough said. We’ll see you there; in person if you’re coming to the True School Cypher or any number of events from Wednesday through Sunday.

“We caught up with Malice during the A3C Hip Hop Festival in Atlanta. He talked about his latest project and why he chose to expose his darkest secrets. He explained how the Clipse have always been an open book and how it was easy for him to open up and write his first book, “Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind and Naked.” Music by Lex Boogie.
After these guys finished their set they headed out for Europe where they are currently touring. Listen to Sean P go off after hearing yet another Mic Tyson question. Also Guilty and Black Milk chime in about some other stuff. Forgive the terrible lighting.
