This weekend, the A3C Hip Hop Festival kicks off in Atlanta, GA, which hosts two days & three nights of music, art, fashion, film and panels. The Music Unlimited service will be out tomorrow night at The Masquerade where Hip Hop legend Raekwon will be headlining a huge night of music. Tickets for each night or all 3 Days of the festival are available here.
Raekwon’s legacy extends not only over his solo albums but to his time as a member of the infamous Wu-Tang Clan, whose multi-platinum status carved their name into the tablets of pop culture one of the influential pioneers of Hip Hop. He followed with six studio albums since 1995, including a collaboration with Method Man and Ghostface Killah, Wu-Massacre. Additionally, he recently launched Ice H20 Records to release his own albums alongside several developing artists he’s taken under his wing.
