In some circles of underground NYC hip hop, feleciacruz is known for her spirited enthusiasm, video journalism and show promotion on behalf of her Fighting For Futures foundation, which raises money to help fund projects helping, building for and teaching children in places like Cambodia, Fiji and New York City.
In some circles of underground NYC hip hop, Birthplace Magazine is known for quickly becoming a formidable journalistic presence in the tri-state, dedicated to documenting New York-area hip hop artists, events and organizations like no other media source.
Despite our regionally strict editorial jurisdiction, when presented with the opportunity to witness the 6th annual A3C Hip Hop Festival, which occurred in early October in Atlanta, Ga., we jumped at the chance (like we did with Summer Jam Canada 2010) to witness how hip hop festivals outside of our area do it, and to show support for our New York brethren and sisthren who brought a bit of the Big Apple to the Big … er… Peach.
In any event, alongside Spills, and Rob Lee, the members of the New York contingent accompanying New York hip hop songstress Miz Metro for her A3c performance, feleciacruz gallantly offered to capture the trip, and some behind-the-scenes action, on video, on behalf of our publication. As you can see from the results, the trials and tribulations of working, travelling musicians, and working journalists, are many, but the excitement of the adventures can be well worth the ride.
Enjoy the exclusive on-the-way-there-and-back and behind-the-scenes footage from Atlanta’s A3C Hip Hop Festival, and a huge shoutout from BirthplaceMag.com to those who are featured therein.
It is a pleasure to be taking this ride with you all. Literally and figuratively.
