G4SHI's "You Want It" is the first single and music video from A3C Volume 4. "You Want It" was directed by G4SHI (pronounced "Gashi") and Jawney QVEST and premiered today on HotNewHipHop. The video showcases the Brooklyn MC by-way-of-Kosovo as he flexes lyrically over Smokie Morrison's hard-hitting production.
Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, the A3C Hip-Hop Festival has renewed its partnership with iHipHop Distribution to bring a diverse array of new hip-hop to fans across the globe with A3C Volume 4.
