Like CBone, the artist that proceeded him on The Real A-Town Experience line-up, Witchdoctor is a member of the Dungeon Family collective, and an artist with a large Atlanta following. He has released six albums since 1997, as well as a book of poetry. A seventh album is in the works.
Atlanta rap artist BlackOwned CBone is a member of the Dungeon Family, and of a hip-hop trio called Konkrete. Although he is not particularly well-known outside of Atlanta yet, he is much loved within the city, and the crowd at The Real A-Town showcase on the Friday night of A3C went wild when he came on stage.
The days at A3C Hip-Hop Festival are primarily centered around the conference hotel. There are exhibits and panels on the second floor, and a VIP lounge with a DJ and snacks and drinks on the 25th floor, with a beautiful panoramic view of the city. There was also this year a Microsoft gaming center for attendees to try out various new video games, and a Reebok shoe exhibit. But in many ways, the most valuable activity at A3C occurs in the lobby and in front of the hotel, as attendees meet each other and network.
Babs is a jewel of a brunch cafe, tucked away on Jupiter Street in Midtown Atlanta and easy to miss. But you shouldn’t miss it, because the breakfast is outstanding, and the coffee, a brand called Torrie from Italy, is truly amazing.
