The latest single from this year’s A3C Festival compilation album comes from Bali Baby.  Bali has quickly emerged as one of the leading female voices in hip-hop and continues to showcase her one-of-a-kind playful style on the new single “Professor Finessor,” from A3C Volume 8. Known for her “Muah!” catchphrase, the PlayGirl Gang rapper bases herself out of Atlanta (although originally hailing from Jacksonville, North Carolina).
 
After dropping a myriad of mixtapes in 2017, including Bubbles Bali, Brazy Bali, and Bali’s Play 2, Bali caught fire with her collaboration alongside Trippie Redd, ”Woah Woah Woah,” which became a viral hit. Bali continued her impressive outing into 2018 when she released major singles including “AMBER Alert” and “Miley Cyrus,” as well as the the Bali Blanco EP, the Baylor Swift project (which received a 7.4 from Pitchfork) and Ressurection.
 
Bali’s prolific streak continues in 2019 with the release of the catchy new single “Professor Finessor” produced by frequent collaborator SULTON. Released in conjunction with an eye-popping music video directed by Lawrence Mahone and premiered by HotNewHipHop, “Professor Finessor” will also be found on the upcoming A3C Festival compilation, A3C Volume 8, which will be available worldwide on February 22nd via A3C / iHipHop Distribution.

HotNewHipHop Premiere: TheGoodPerry – “Down Lo” (from A3C Volume 8)

The A3C Festival & Conference and iHipHop Distribution present the highly anticipated, next installment in their annual compilation series. A3C Volume 8 celebrates the 14th anniversary of the Festival and the eighth year that the Festival & Conference and iHipHop Distribution have collaborated to bring listeners this renowned series.
 
The previous editions of the A3C compilation have included numerous, future prominent artist’s in hip-hop, allowing the series to receive recognition from numerous outlets, with editors from Apple Music stating, “The A&R rep has done a commendable job, cherry-picking some of the most promising, would-be rap stars from countless wannabes,” said editors from Apple Music. The compilation series has introduced numerous artists, to fans of the genre, who have established themselves as staples in the hip-hop marketplace. Past compilation artists include G-Eazy, Curren$y, A$AP Rocky, Yung Bans, Action Bronson, Vince Staples, Kodie Shane, Buddy, Smoke DZA, Rapsody,Dave East, Freddie Gibbs, Lucki, Thouxanbanfauni, Trademark Da Skydiver, Mick Jenkins, Sir Michael Rocks, Robb Bank$, and Jimmy Wopo, among others.
 
Atlanta’s own TheGoodPerry joins the ranks, as his new track “Down Lo” is the latest single from A3C Volume 8 which premiered today via HotNewHipHop. Perry is often thought of as the driving force behind Lil Yachty’s most acclaimed tracks as well as the overall imagery that made Yachty so popular.
 
TheGoodPerry has produced numerous songs for Lil Yachty including the platinum hit “One Night” (2016). Casual fans of Yachty will recognize him from his standout feature on the track “Wanna Be Us” from Yachty’s breakthrough project Lil Boat, as well as “Such Ease” from Summer Songs 2. He additionally produced the notable “Running with the Ghost” from Yachty’s 2017 major label debut Teenage Emotions. At the end of 2017, following a stint on Quality Control, Perry was forced to change his moniker (then known as ‘Burberry Perry’) to ‘TheGoodPerry’ due to a highly-publicized lawsuit with the iconic British fashion company.
 
As he moved from behind the boards and began transitioning into a front-running artist from the South in 2018, TheGoodPerry’s unique sound was noticed by the legendary Rick Rubin, who immediately signed the 22 year-old to American Songs. With plans for an EP release early this year and his debut album slated for mid-2019, TheGoodPerry is now putting his talents on full display with “Down Lo,” a melodic single which will also be included on this year’s A3C Festival compilation series, A3C Volume 8 due out in February. According to Perry himself, when asked about his inspiration for creating the track, “I always wanted to make a twerk song, so I did.

A3C Volume 8 will be available worldwide on February 22, 2019 via A3C / iHipHop Distribution.
