The first ever AMF (All My Friends) festival will be taking over ROW DTLA in just a few short days and we couldn’t be more excited. Music festival pioneer and DJ extraordinaire Gary Richards has put together a stellar lineup including RL Grime, Jamie XX, M.I.A and many more. Set times have just been announced (which you can see below) and a limited number of tickets are still available here.
If you were ever a fan of the HARD events that Gary used to produce, then you owe it to yourself to come out and support what will surely be the next great event brand in LA.
Our friends from DOLA are also giving away a pair of tickets so be sure to enter that contest right here.
Thomas continues his conversation with Coach K about the origin of trap music, beginning with Young Jeezy’s 2004 mixtape, Tha Streets Iz Watchin (according to Coach). Both Coach and super producer Zaytoven—who rose to prominence alongside Gucci Mane—explain the explosion of the genre and eventual beef between Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane. We quickly learn that Gucci Mane has not only become one of the most significant rappers in the Atlanta scene, but has so much leverage that his opinion can essentially decide the career trajectory of any new rapper trying to make it. What’s perhaps most impressive is that Gucci’s influence is still just as prominent as ever—even though he’s currently locked up until 2016.”
