Hip Hop invaded the ATL starting this past Wednesday in the form of the A3C Festival. Hip Hop lovers, CEO’s, music industry tastemakers, and aspiring artists ascended on ATL like 2-pac and Biggie were being resurrected. Last night Ghostface Killah gave the crowd some of that classic WuTang Clan flavor and there are many more performances, panels, and seminars to come. The city of Atlanta is buzzing right now and everyone is excited about the Block Party this upcoming Sunday featuring Questlove of The Roots on the one’s and two’s.
