Why Hip-Hop?

Hip-Hop is the most important, influential and potentially largest user-base for many music tech companies. Hip-Hop artists are early adopters and often the most active and engaged community on most social and music technology platforms.

Atlanta is the capital of Hip-Hop and A3C is the annual gathering for Music, Tech & Hip-Hop.
