If you know every artist on the A3C line-up, I salute your hip hop knowledge. The beauty of A3C is that you are introduced or re-introduced to artists who you may have forgotten about or have never had the opportunity to discover.
The Away Team was my wonderful discovery. The minute the dynamic duo, MC Sean Boog and Khrysis hit the stage I was energized. As they promoted there new album, “Scars & Stripes”, I frantically had to google it so I could make sure I remembered their names when I got home to review their catalog.
As fans of the rap group surrounded me, I realized that hip hop was here. Memories of being in basement parties with turntables and b-boys, I felt transformed into a reality that many don’t think exist. The Away Team spun hit after hit and they had me hooked. Their presence and content were captivating and their performance was memorable. When I began my research on the group that revitalized my hip hop spirit, I realized I heard them before, but didn’t even know it.
I appreciate the set that The Away Team displayed and though I may not have known your name your music is something I will never forget.
