We're hosting an intimate conversation with Goodie Mob, one of Atlanta’s most iconic hip-hop groups. A3C is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Goodie Mob’s critically acclaimed album, Still Standing, with a Keynote Conversation featuring Goodie Mob’s Cee-Lo Green, Khujo, T-Mo & Big Gipp and Brandon 'Jinx' Jenkins (of Complex). Still Standing is a socially conscious that feels somewhat prophetic. The album addressed racism, gentrification and corrupt police.
