This past weekend it seemed like every hip-hop presence was present in Atlanta for the jam-packed A3C Festival.
The weekend also functioned as a coming out party for the Ear Drummer’s newest artist, Eearz. Last Friday, ATLiens piled into superstar skater Stevie Williams new Status Life store to witness Mike WiLL Made-It’s introduction to the new voice of the Atlanta streets, Eearz. Eearz has received many nods of approval from industry professionals, including The Weeknd who showcased Work Ya Muscle on his Beats1 playlist. With that kind of support, it is only a matter of time till the world knows what Atlanta already does.
Stevie Williams, Mike WiLL Made-It, and the Ear Drummers, in true Atlanta style, threw a party for the event, providing food and drinks for the crowd while the DJ set the mood for the main event, while the walls showcased skateboard decks and Free Gucci merchandise. Mike WiLL Made-It’s message to the crowd was aimed at the young budding artist in the crowd, reminding everyone that it was less than 7 years ago when he was just another broke Atlanta kid with a dream. He told the audience that it was possible to make it just like him and introduced Eearz, the newest testament of struggle-turned-triumphant.
Eearz gave a high-powered performance, performing his hit single “Work Ya Muscle” as well as a flurry of other tracks from his debut EP, Eearz To Da Streetz Vol. 1, such as Gone Be Something, Chain Reaction, and Shotgun. Eearz seamlessly transformed the skateshop to what looked like a day party in a club, proving that his new project was worth a listen.
Eearz, went on to give an amazing performance at the A3C Festival, but for those who weren’t able to make it down Atlanta, you can check out the Ear Drummers new artist on iTunes, where Eearz To Da Streetz Vol. 1 is currently available for purchase and download.
