The LNS Crew's journey to the A3C music conference and festival began in their hometown of Austin, where they began the 16+ hour journey.  After making a brief stop in New Orleans, where they ate some po'boys and hit the slot machines at the Harrahs Casino & Hotel for a few hours, they landed in Atlanta Thursday afternoon.  On Thursday night, they checked out the vaunted "Straight Outta Texas" showcase to show support for their fellow Texans. Put on by former SXSW head hiphop honcho Matt Sonzala, the Texas showcase had some of the biggest names in Texas hiphop, with rising stars Doughbeezy and A.Dd+ (as well as Austin's own LOEGz) alongside Houston legends such as Killa Kyleon and Lil Keke. After some late-night dining at The Majestic, they hit the hay to get ready for their own showcase at the Red Bull Soundstage, where Slum Village and The Liknuts (Alkaholiks + Beatnuts) were headlining. Friday night, the beautiful Martina McFlyy set the mood with some hiphop jams before Doughbeezy kicked it off with an energetic opening set. Soon after that, the LNS Crew hit the stage for an epic twenty minute performance, after which San Antonio representer and LNS affiliate Worldwide turned up for Atlanta and shut it down. Slum Village and The Liknuts gave epic performances, and after hitting Gladys Knight's famous restaurant for some late night chicken, the LNS Crew took the next day off to go hit the town and check out the local scene. The trip to Atlanta was a success, and they will definitely be back soon.
