In Their Words

"A3C is important for the culture because it cares about the community. It cares about awareness on all fronts, entrepreneurship for young people. [It] cares about people like me, who cares about young people and getting them to get into entrepreneurship, discovery of new technology, that type of thing. They’re involved and dialed into everything that’s happening across all fronts, and they care about hip hop. They care about culture. So that’s why I’m here" - Nas

A3C, that’s very important in the hip-hop community.
