The A3C compilation series has been influential within the genre, serving as a barometer for which artists will become renowned staples in the ever-changing hip-hop landscape. Past compilation artists include G-Eazy, Curren$y, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul, A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, Underachievers, Smoke DZA, Trademark Da Skydiver, Rockie Fresh, Bodega Bamz, Freddie Gibbs, Sir Michael Rocks, Alex Wiley, Mick Jenkins, Chris Webby, Dave East, OCD: Moosh & Twist, Scotty ATL, Robb Bank$, Michael Christmas, Tunji Ige, Manolo Rose, Locksmith, and Trinidad James, just to name a few. For this reason, the compilation has seen praise from various outlets including iTunes, as its editors raved, “the A&R rep has done a commendable job, cherry-picking some of the most promising, would-be rap stars from countless wannabes.”
Today also marks the release of the third music video and single from A3C Volume 6, “Stall Ya” by Vancouver’s own Mcevoy and Chicago’s SD. This new track by the two is undeniably catchy yet hard-hitting, with production by Deedotwill and Gezin of 808 Mafia. The music video was directed by RichConcepts and builds onto the two previously released singles from A3C Volume 6, “We Got That” by A-F-R-O and “Money in the Mattress” by Lex Lavo. “Stall Ya” premiered today via HipHopDX.
Also, for the first time ever world-renowned producer Statik Selektah has teamed up with A3C and iHipHop Distribution to remix and reinterpret some of the most memorable tracks from the A3C compilation series on one magnificent album.
