Beyond the Booth host Maurice Garland heads to Atlanta’s Super Sound Music to interview DJ Burn One. Burn One, who’s crafted tunes for Gucci Mane, Yelawolf, Freddie Gibbs, A$AP Rocky and more, got his start in the ATL hip-hop scene by ringing up LPs behind the store’s counter. He talks with Garland about country rap and his misconstrued “Pimp C sound.”
“To me, it really just means the blues in hip-hop,” says DJ Burn One. “It’s like soul music for rap.”
Beyond the Booth is an original web series that will interview prominent folks in the ATL hip-hop scene in the lead up to October’s A3C (All 3 Coasts) hip-hop festival. Now in its ninth year, A3C will take over ATL’s Old 4th Ward, Little 5 Points and East Atlanta Village between Oct. 2 and 6. Check out the A3C 2013 lineup here.
