Atlanta, GA - 

The annual A3C Festival & Conference went down in Atlanta over the weekend and brought together some of the leading figures in the Hip Hop community. To mark the occasion, the A3C Festival & Conference and iHipHop Distribution are proud to announce the eighth installment of the annual compilation series, A3C Volume 8.

The project commemorates the 14th anniversary of the A3C Festival and also marks the eighth year the A3C Festival & Conference and iHipHop Distribution have joined forces to bring listeners this illustrious series.

The A3C compilation series has been influential within the genre, serving as a barometer to gauge which artists will become renowned staples in the ever-changing Hip Hop landscape. 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.

As in past years, the 2018 compilation continues to spotlight the genre’s foremost emerging artists with approximately 50 tracks from the newest generation of Hip Hop torchbearers.

One of those burgeoning artists is San Antonio MC Cap Gold whose “HighClass Fever” cut serves as the first single from A3C Volume 8.

The 19 year-old has quickly taken over Texas’ underground scene and has all of the makings of a prolific artist, something showcased in the video for “HighClass Fever.” Shot on location by Justin Perez, Cap delivers his lines through his gold grills until the police arrive to shut things down.

The A3C Volume 8 compilation is expected to arrive soon.

iHipHop Distribution is currently accepting submissions for A3C Volume 8. If you would like A3C and iHipHop Distribution to consider your music for this installment of the compilation series, please send your submission to
