Making their triumphant return to the birthplace of trap music to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, OutKast‘s performance has ignited an excitement among ATLiens that lies deep in the lifeblood of this entire city. That album solidified to the world that “ATL” was no longer a 3 letter airport abbreviation, but the call sign of The Hip Hop Capital of the World. Their tour debut may have started in Coachella, but if you ask me OutKast coming home is comparable to your girlfriend coming back from a month-long vacation; it feels like the first time.
Fully backed with a supporting line-up of some of the hottest names in trap music today, CounterPoint spared no expense to bring you artists that are sure to set the vibe up right before OutKast throws it down. Trap superstars you can’t catch live every day like Hucci, Nosaj Thing, XXYYXX and Run The Jewels (EL-P and Killer Mike) line up beside J Cole, Schoolboy Q, Flosstradamus and Rich Homie Quan. Mayhem will be there representing his ATL roots along with hometown favorite BLKMRRIS. These and the many more artists on the docket are a trap lovers dream. EDM trap or rap trap–whatever your preference–you’re going to hear it all and it’s going to be awesome. I can’t wait.
