Wow! A lot of things to cover this week. Shall we dive right in?
Catch up with Josie’s #WeeklyRoundUp for the Week October 12th, 2017 below!
1. A3C Hip Hop Festival Wrap up
Atlanta is always full of tons of opportunities for people in the music industry to grow their craft and network. A3C was no exception! People come from all over the country for the chance to perform on any of the stages. Now, let's get into this F.I.L.A Night Show! First of all, the Union Eav was packed out and I got there around 11PM. It was packed! Not like, clubby, lets all get drunk and fight later packed, no it was packed out with music lovers. The energy was ridiculously high. If you can't tell by my enthusiasm (and the fact that i've said "packed" like 12 times already), I enjoyed myself.
Of all the performances, two artists stood out to me; Michael Aristotle and Made Man. Aristotle hit us with dumb crazy 808's and "catchy song of the night" goes to Made Man - Big Money. The crowd was def singing along by the end of it. Over all a good festival this year. We'll check in next year with even more content to explore.
2. BET Hip Hop Awards aka the Best Cypher in 10 years
I look forward to the BET Hip Hop Awards for one reason and one reason only: the Cyphers. This year's Cypher was the best in 10 years. No joke. There were some conscious spitters featured (Mysonne) and lyricists that can clearly freestyle off top (6Black) with bonus points for being able to express themselves in a way that we can understand what they're saying (Kashdoll)!

But don't let me be the judge. Check it for yourself! Who had the best flow?

4. Crate Sesh Vol. 3 is up RIGHT Now!
If you've been rockin' with me for a while, you know I like to put mixes out there. The "Crate Sesh" series is a way for me to express myself and connect with y'all. I posted vol. 3 a few days back and it's performance has been amazing! I truly appreciate the support! Go ahead listen to it again, I know I will! (lol).
5. #DJLIFE: Energy Radio (Ongoing)
I'm excited to announce that I'll continue to be guest DJ for Energy Radio with host @elicionne. This show has a different feel than One Up Chronicles. There's a bit more conversation. Tune in! I know you'll enjoy it.
The show airs LIVE every Wed from 7-9PM EST. To listen, you gotta have the Highly Unique Radio App or the tunein App. Both are available in the GooglePlay Store or the iTunes Store!
Until next time...
