The ATLien enters the 36 Chambers on DJ Critical Hype’s rugged and raw mash-up
On October 6th and 7th, Atlanta’s annual A3C festivities will commence with a blockbuster bill, featuring performances from Lil Wayne, Talib Kweli, DJ Premier, Curren$y, and a recently unified Wu-Tang Clan.
To mark Shaolin’s southern sojourn, the festival has commissioned a stellar new mixtape from Canadian producer, DJ Critical Hype. His Wu-Chainz: 36 Trap Houses mash-up offers the best of both houses, laying the deceptively intricate wordplay of 2 Chainz over a broad batch of iconic RZA/Wu productions. A wildly gratifying, if not entirely unholy, union. In a statement to Rolling Stone, RZA noted “Whether you’re from the Slums of Shaolin or the Wards of the South, hip-hop is our voice.”
The conference portion of the festival will take place October 3rd through October 5th, featuring panel discussions and lectures from RZA, Steve Stoute, J. Prince, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike, Zaytoven, Amir Abassey, and more.
