For the fourth consecutive year Music Matters brings premiere talent to the festival including Juvenile, Mystikal, Kidd Kidd, Nappy Roots, Kevin Gates, Retro and DJ Spicoli to the main stage.  In addition, two Music Matters artists, Oakland femcee GLAM and Washington, D.C. conscious rapper Taron Johnson will also bring the heat to the main stage.

“Music Matters has a great history of showcasing the next superstars in hip hop down at A3C,” said Kelly G. Griffin, Senior Director of Music Programming, BET Networks. “We are proud to return on the 10thyear anniversary to bring more exciting new hip hop stars alongside legendary southern performers Juvenile and Mystical. It’s been years since they have performed in Atlanta and we anticipate this being a goose bump, can’t-miss historical moment in hip hop.”
