Sha Stimuli - The Calling [Music Video]

Brooklyn bred emcee Sha Stimuli does Hip Hop for one reason and one reason only.  It's his calling. While everyone can call themselves rappers, Sha is a true emcee who spits effortlessly about things that you can't help but vibe to.

During 2011's A3C Festival, Sha recorded the Focus and DJ Presyce produced track "The Calling" in the festival's Unique Squared mobile studio and at Atlanta's Salem Psalms Library. I'm not liable if you break your neck listening to this one!

The 2011 A3C Hip Hop Festival started off with a bang on Thursday, October 6th due to its interesting panels, shows, and especially its freestyle competition.  Sarah West Presents: Enter The Cypher consisted of 12 up and coming rappers who were all competing to win free audio equipment, studio time, social media management, and more!

After a very competitive two rounds, the final round was left with Atlanta's own Sean G & J Young. Watch below to find out which of these last men standing took it home, and to watch a bonus performance from  the winner and dope NY/NC raised rapper J.A.E.!

Who Dat? Who Dat? Sean G

I met Sean G at the A3C Festival last weekend, and I was impressed by his performance in all three rounds of Enter The Cypher.  Although Sean G wasn't the most well known rapper at A3C, his energy was sky high, and the crowd couldn't help but feel what he was saying.

Who Dat? Who Dat?: Big Rec

Thursday night, I had the pleasure of hearing Oklahoma representer Big Rec perform for the first time at the A3C Hip Hop Festival.  Two things that stood out with him amongst the other rappers in the set was his stage presence and, of course, his skills.  I don't even really have to give too much of an appeal for Big Rec. This video speaks for itself.

Jean Grae is an absolute beast.  She's everything I could ever ask for in a rapper -- a dope lyricist, funny as shit, and original.  Last night during the DJ Booth showcase, she premiered "Change My Life" , a brand new track from her upcoming album Cake or Death.  Check out the performance below!

Big K.R.I.T. had the best performance of the A3C Hip Hop Festival in my opinion.  Maybe it's because I was in the first row and hype as all get out, but it seems like everyone else shares my sentiments!  Check out highlights from K.R.I.T.'s set last night at the A3C Festival!
