Mass Appeal x A3C | Bringing 1996 to the Stage
If you attended A3C in Atlanta this year and didn’t come out to our 1996 Stage, you played yourself. In honor of the importance of the year 1996 for hip hop, we invited some of the greats to perform seminal albums and strictly hits. While we were down there, we captured some show footage and short interviews with artists. Hit play above and see clips of D.R.E.S. of Beatnik, Bun B, Keith Murray, Erick Sermon, Trae the Truth, Twista, Bone Thugs, Scotty ATL, Cory Mo, and Jace of Two-9.
