The A3C Festival has been an absolute success as the event rolls into the weekend. The five-day festival and conference the resides in Atlanta brings out the entire hip hop community from legends to new artists. There were a number of great panels on Friday, which is also the start of the festival section on the main grounds of A3C.
Combat Jack held a live show, while Julia Beverly held a session entitled Pimp C 101. A3C held playback rooms where you were producers, rappers and DJs were given constructive critistm if their work was good enough for radio or if their beats were good enough.
A My Mixtapez panel was held that featured Rocko, and they gave out the best advice for getting exposure and access to the website. Presentation was the key they said, DJ Champ who regularly contributes to the site emphasized to not be afraid to keep sending DJs your songs or a performance as if they keep seeing your name in their e-mail they likely hood they check you out increased greatly.
The highlight of the night was the BET Music Matters Showcase that had a crazy line-up: Bia, Goldyard, Theophilus Martins, Kris Kasanova, Key!, Audio Push, The Alchemist & Oh No = GANGRENE, CyHi The Prynce, Beanie Sigel, Just Blaze, and Cam’ron.
