We all can think of some things that are dirty and pretty at the same time, but from this point on, you should probably refer to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/rapper-big-pooh">Rapper Big Pooh's</a> new album, Dirty Pretty Things.
Here’s another way to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/10/the-10-best-ways-for-artists-to-build-their-brands-at-music-festivals">build your brand</a> at a music festival: connect with like-minded artists in legendary surroundings to create original music.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/hip-hop-reflects-on-the-career-of-bobby-cox"> Growing up in Central Virginia, there were no professional sports teams in close proximity. Because of this, attending a Richmond Braves - formerly the Triple A affiliate of the <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/atlanta-braves">Atlanta Braves</a> - baseball game during the summer was the closest many people who call the area home ever got to a big league game.

I came away from A3C with more CDs, business cards, shared experiences and endless gigabytes of photos and video. However, it now all lays aside my desk like a waste treatment plant, staring at and challenging me to attempt to sift through it. Countless items on the to-do list versus an overwhelming inbox, zero video editing skills and another flight out in the morning for a short trip. While we continue to recover, we didn't want to leave you hanging for recap information because there's plenty of it. Of the 200+ artists billed to attend the Festival, rest assured that mine eyes witnessed at least 120 of those acts and that's a whole lot of Hip-Hopping. There were several underdogs and other artists who I'd never heard of but both ended up flooring me with their stage presence. Of course, there were the letdowns too, the ones who had the stage presence of a 2" x 4". Later, we'll get to all that. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=139558"> The Kid Daytona touches the people in many ways.
