Every month, Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols showcase the very best in R&B music at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park for ATL Live on the Park. This month was a special edition as they decided to celebrate Atlanta’s Hip Hop Pioneers.
Atlanta is enjoying a Renaissance as it relates to its Hip Hop Roots. The energetic crowd made the night magical and fun as they celebrated the 2nd Annual Hip-Hop Unplugged honoring pioneers from the Atlanta Hip-Hop music scene.
ATL Live on the Park included performances by K.P. and Envyi, DJ Jelly and DJ Nabs, Backbone, Organized Noize, and Big Gipp.
Kenny Burns hosted the event and excited the crowd, alongside DJ Trauma and in-house band Quinn and the Jukebox.
One half of my favorite rap duo Big Boi of Outkast came by to show support and pick up his award. My inner teenager heart skips beats at the thought of OUTKAST!
Shanti Das is pretty iconic in the music industry. Known as the Hip Hop Professional she wears many hats from accomplished music executive to entrepreneur to mentor to a pretty charitable girl. Shanti came up the ranks of Hip Hop during the golden era of Atlanta’s rise to shine in the music industry. ATL Live on the Park seems like a natural extension of her contribution to the music industry.
In addition to her works in music she has published two books entitled “The Hip Hop Professional 2.0” and “The 1, 2, 3,S of Networking“. Shanti has over twenty years of experience in the entertainment industry and is using that to mentor and help others.
September’s edition of ATL Live on the Park was absolutely amazing. We enjoyed the night that included great music and fun. The night was powered by Cricket Wireless, Gentleman Jack, Cantu Beauty, Aaron’s, and W Hotel Midtown.
