Tracklanta – Get to Know the Producers and Studios

Thousands of artists, creatives and entrepreneurs will be present for the 15th anniversary A3C Festival & Conference in Atlanta for a series of performances and experiences celebrating hip-hop’s past, present and future.

Dubbed “hip hop’s center of gravity” by the New York Times, Atlanta is arguably one of the greatest epicentres of the genre. The city is responsible for establishing some real legends of the game like Ludacris, 21 Savage, Future, and groups like OutKast. And behind these limelight-grabbing names stand some of the world’s finest producers and studios.  

Thanks to our partners at A3C and ChooseATL, you stand a chance to follow in the footsteps of hip hop’s greats. Here we introduce the world-class producers and studios that YOU could be working and recording with.

Being able to leave a legacy for my son to be proud of and live from if need be.

Top 3 Notable Productions:

Be Without You – Mary J. Blige
4ever – Lil Mo f/Fabolous

What do I look for in a collaborator?

I look for someone that can bring a different approach to production. A different technique. Really mix up both of our styles.
