What Are You Most Excited About for A3C?

"I’m looking forward to being in Atlanta first and foremost, I’ve never been and I’ve heard such good things about the city. As for A3C, I’m looking forward to taking the stage and giving the people something with some energy, but I’m also excited to see a lot of my favorite new artists do their thing. This is like Hip Hop Woodstock I've heard, so I'm happy to be a part of it."
