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 compilation series has introduced numerous artists, to fans of the genre, who have established themselves as staples in the hip-hop marketplace.

Next up is Miami-based artist Yung Simmie. Having built his foundation as part of the ahead-of-its-time Raider Klan, alongside Spaceghostpurrp, Denzel Curry, and Xavier Wulf, Simmie began branching out in the early 2010s to establish himself as a solo artist. Known for his steadfast delivery and ominous beat selections, Simmie quickly became a notable figure in his state’s growing underground scene. With a handful of mixtapes released under the Raider Klan umbrella, Simmie’s 2013 mixtape Basement Musik put him on the map, drawing comparisons to Three 6 Mafia’s early work. Simmie’s next projects, both part of his Shut Up and Vibe series respectively, gained him traction on Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart and he had become a collaborator of Robb Bank$, Pouya, Cashy and Denzel Curry, just to name a few.  Simmie’s output remained unwavering, as he dropped tape-after-tape and song-after-song leading to 2017’s Big Smokey project, which marked his last release as part of Raider Klan. After releasing numerous well-received singles in 2018, Simmie returns with his first single of 2019, the HighAF-produced banger “Easy,” which premiered today via HipHopDX. Over a dark beat filled with a thumping bass line, Simmie flexes his lyrical ability in a nonchalant manner, indeed making it seem effortless and easy to him. The hard-hitting track will be found on A3C Volume 8, which will be available worldwide on February 22, 2019.
