STREAM / DOWNLOAD “EASY”

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. 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.

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.

Hailing from Madison, WI, 20 year-old Trapo is often regarded as one of the hottest independent artists in the country. Self-described as literally living in the studio, Trapo began recording and mixing his music from his bedroom in the fifth grade. When his debut mixtape,The Black Beverly Hills, arrived in late 2015, it quickly garnered ‘best new artist’ designations from Pigeons & Planes and BBC Radio 1. He followed the successful project with the quick-strike EP, SHE, spawning the hit single “Chicago,” which rose to No. 2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Tracks chart in April 2016. Trapo’s follow-up album, Shade Trees, released in November 2016 would continue to earn him praise and he has become a rare member of Pigeons and Planes’ 20 Under 20 list for three consecutive years in a row. Trapo rounded out 2018 with a highly-regarded EP, Oil Change.
 
Now Trapo is releasing his first single of 2019, “In This Car.” A conceptual track of self-reflection, “In This Car” is still an undeniable banger produced by Hush Forte. “In This Car” epitomizes Trapo’s originality and the ambitious new single will also be found on the upcoming A3C Festival compilation, A3C Volume 8, arriving February 22nd via A3C / iHipHop Distribution

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

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.

Born in raised in the streets of Warner Robins, Georgia, Brudda Haitian jumped head-first into the rap game at 16 years-old, selling his first mixtape in his high school hallways. However, it wasn’t until his hit single, “Gone Bad,” was released that people across the country began to notice. As Pigeons and Planes explained, “‘Gone Bad’ has been shutting down clubs all year and now it’s starting to expand outside of the region.” His 2017 mixtape, I Am the New Dope, earned Brudda accolades and heightened his ever-growing presence as a force in the southern hip-hop scene. Today Brudda Haitian shares the darkly euphoric video for “Max Out,” a hard-hitting banger produced by Deraj Global, featured on A3C Volume 7.  The video was shot on location in Atlanta by Brann and juxtaposes shadowy and vibrant imagery in one visual.

SD Unveils the Title Track From His Highly-Anticipated Full-Length Project, Pay Attention, Set For Release On April 6th

March 7, 2018 - Chicago, IL - SD has unveiled the title track from his highly- full-length project, Pay Attention, which is set for release on April 6th through Truly Blessed / iHipHop Distribution.  The Trauma Tone produced single, “Pay Attention,” is the follow-up to SD’s highly successful 2017 tracks  “Sacrifice” and “From The Bottom,” for which both tracks and videos have garnered millions of streams/views to date.  “Pay Attention” like the previous two tracks is available for streaming on all services (Link Below).

SD’s influence and inspiration comes from the uninviting, bleak reality of the Chicago streets, where he, Chief Keef, the late Fredo Santana and Lil Reese, built a movement that continues to influence a generation and have a ripple effect through the hip-hop genre.  At a young age, SD made his mark by creating a niche style of hipster urban music, including an element of cool kid/gangsta rap and was prominently featured in videos from Chief KeefDanny Brown, Riff Raff and more.

SD would establish himself through a string of highly-successful and critically acclaimed mixtapes, particularly the three volume mixtape series, Life of a Savage, Life of a Savage 2 and 3.  In 2014 SD made his debut on iHipHop Distribution, with the revered album Truly Blessed, which changed the game for rappers from Chicago, as SD introduced his own sound in order to achieve personal milestones he set for himself.  Truly Blessed would receive praise from outlets including Pitchfork and the Fader, while Fact Mag would rank it as a top album of the year. In 2015, SD released the fourth installment in the Life of a Savage mixtape series as well as the Just The Beginning mixtape. In retrospect, SD says that his driving force in his life is his daughter, who shows him a higher purpose.

SD’s new full-length project Pay Attention will be available worldwide on April 6th via Truly Blessed / iHipHop Distribution
