With the seventh annual A3C Festival compilation, A3C Volume 7, dropping worldwide earlier this week, A3C and iHipHop Distribution are sharing the first video from this year’s compilation for “Bounce Back” by Kodie Shane.
Kodie Shane, the 18 year-old who is breaking barriers for female artists in Atlanta. Kodie, who is a frequent collaborator and an official member of Lil Yachty’s Sailing Team, has made waves this year with her debut EP Zero Gravity which was followed by Back From the Future EP in August.
A3C Volume 7 includes 49 tracks from the newest generation of hip-hop’s torchbearers, and despite the stacked track list, “Bounce Back” is a true breakout song. Shot in Atlanta, “Bounce Back” is an aesthetically thrilling visual for the Bradelea Roi-produced single. Director Donny Slater brings the track to life with infrared styled video. The video premiered today via XXL
“Keeping it simple, ‘Bounce Back’ explains my trust issues,” says Kodie. “I’m sure everyone can relate in some way.”
In the new year, Kodie relays, “I’m gearing up for the 2018 release of my debut full length album late March, a Headline statewide tour which will take off in April as well my first ever U.K. run to follow. Lots of Surprises coming as well for 2018 that include TV appearances, Big Festival looks, and some dope collaborations with other amazing artists and producers you love…stay tuned!”
The A3C compilation series has been influential within the genre, serving as a barometer to gauge which artists will become renowned staples in the ever-changing hip-hop landscape. Past compilation artists include G-Eazy, Curren$y, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul, A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, Underachievers, Smoke DZA, Trademark Da Skydiver, Freddie Gibbs, Sir Michael Rocks, Alex Wiley, Mick Jenkins, Dave East, Thouxanbanfauni, Robb Bank$, Michael Christmas, Tunji Ige, Manolo Rose, and Trinidad James, just to name a few.
