Finally!! A3C 2011 is BACK IN EFFECT
Day one of the 2011 A3C Hip Hop festival: Eventful & Celebratory of all things Hip Hop. Without question as one of the best starts to date for the festival, the common ground for appreciation of pure hip-hop of all degrees was well represented in Day One of the Masquerade.
Highlight Stages for the night included the Highlight Express presented by Kevin Nottingham dot com as well as the Perfect attendance stage presented by Fadia Kader & The Smoking Section and the Creative loafing stage with headlines acts Freeway & Random Axe, as well as a warm up from the legendary Diamond D. Digging in the Crates indeed
What I learned from day one at the A3C 2011:
-Albums from J live, Rapper Big Pooh & Torae are going to be TOUGH
-The entire Hip Hop DX & Kevin Nottingham showcases have supplied evidence that The State of Hip Hop is HEALTHY!!!!!
-Can’t front, but the Ying Yang Twins are funny dudes, and shown with their performance having a common ground in the culture at the A3C
-The smoking section and Fadia Kader continues to give more bang for the buck with the perfect attendance stage…seriously! GO HERE--->>>>>>> http://www.a3cfestival.com/schedule/#f
-You need to get a Jones for Lyric!- Lyric Jones: http://www.a3cfestival.com/lyric-jones-trapped-in-the-city-lights-video/
