For the third year, iHipHop Distribution will again partner with the Atlanta-based A3C Hip Hop festival for a compilation series that will showcase new and upcoming artists in Hip Hop.

Although past iHipHop Distribution contributors include the likes of Trinidad James, Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, and Ab-Soul, iHipHop will welcome submissions from all artists for the first time. Artists wishing to submit their music for consideration can do so at A3CMusic.com.

This week’s announcement serves as one of a handful of reveals that have been made over the past few weeks in regards to A3C. Past announcements have revealed the location of the festival and the names of the artists who will perform at this year’s ninth annual music fete. They include Ghostface Killah, Too Short, 9th Wonder, Jean Grae, and more.

iHipHop Distribution’s compilation album, A3C Volume 3, will be released on October 3, just one day after A3C kicks off. The festival, which has been dubbed “one of the largest hip-hop festivals in the US,” will conclude on October 6.
