— — Building upon last year’s extraordinary compilation album, the A3C Hip-Hop Festival has once again partnered with iHipHop Distribution to bring a diverse array of new hip-hop to fans across the globe with A3C Volume 2. Last year’s compilation album, A3C Volume 1, catapulted the festival’s artists to a new level as fans across the world were able to share in the experience of concert-goers and discover flourishing new artists such as Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, XV, Rockie Fresh, Chase N. Cashe, Jarren Benton, Main Attrakionz, and Soul Khan, just to name a few. The album also featured established, and even timeless, acts such as Dead Prez, M.O.P., Bun B, RZA, 9th Wonder, Murs, and Ski Beatz. iTunes raved, “loaded with 45 tracks, ‘Volume 1’ showcases much-loved and well-established acts from around the country…there’s really something here for everybody.”
A3C Volume 2 will follow in its predecessor’s footsteps by once again showcasing over 50 artists on a massive double-album compilation. Volume 2 will spotlight emerging artists from across the country. Artists featured on A3C Volume 2 will represent the next wave of premier talent, soon to be staples in the genre.
The first single from A3C Volume 2 is “Victory” by the flourishing Philadelphia duo, OCD: Moosh & Twist. OCD has developed a tremendous fan base through their extensive mixtape releases and captivating online videos such as the viral sensation, “City Kids.” At only 19 years old, the duo just finished their first national tour, hitting over 30 cities, spreading their music to fans that up until then only had the opportunity to hear their music online. “Victory” is a triumphant anthem in which Moosh and Twist reflect on their past success and wax poetic about their future endeavors. The video, which was shot in their home city of Philly, is directed by GRVTY and exemplifies their youthful exuberance. Fans can catch OCD performing at this year’s A3C Hip-Hop Festival in Atlanta.
A3C Volume 2 will hit digital stores worldwide on October 16, 2012 via iHipHop Distribution.
