For those not in the know, every year Atlanta hosts the A3C hip-hop festival, bringing together a mixture of underground staples and dope relatively unknown artists for performances, workshops and politicking. During this year’s A3C, Stankonia Studios opened their facilities up to visiting emcees to create an album full of pairings you wouldn’t typically find. The latest single from Stankonia Sessions: A3C Edition, hosted by SMKA and Royal Flush and presented by Grooveshark, is the The Journey featuring Young Scolla, Rapper Big Pooh and Freeway and produced by Royal Flush and Marc Real. The song has a sing-along style hook that bridges the gap between each respective artist rapping in quick summation about their specific journeys in rap music and life, with the Philly Freezer arguably stealing the show. (Feel free to disagree in the comments below.) The beat has a very familiar sample as its backbone and breathes enough to let the artists simply do their thing. Stankonia Sessions: A3C Edition will be released tomorrow, November 16.
